Windows Mobile 6.5 (or 6.5.3) Build 28002 is out already and it finally brings a new native on-screen keyboard which is optimized for more finger friendly touch operations. Windows Mobile OEMs like HTC, Samsung and Sony Ericsson have already been shipping their newer handsets with skinned version of the original stylus-friendly keyboard for finger friendly navigation. But now from Windows Mobile 6.5.3 Build 28002 and onwards, Microsoft has finally updated the age old on-screen virtual keyboard that has been a feature of Windows phones since Pocket PC’s era.
This new keyboard surely looks very nice and it has a professional look and feel to it. Hopefully, this is a sign of good things to come for the next major Windows Mobile (Windows Mobile 7) which is scheduled for Q4 2010 release.
