Armageddon – Windows Mobile 6.5 on a capacitive screen spotted!

WMExperts has been scouring the MWC floors looking for Windows Mobile news and came up with this doozy. 

Texas Instruments has been showing of their reference design for their new TI OMAP 3430 processor, and the device is pretty packed, with a 4.1 inch 800×480 screen, 6-in-1 cards slow, HDMI out (!) and also, surprisingly, a capacitive touch screen.

According the WMExperts in use it was still a bit hit and miss, but this is likely because of the imprecise nature of the screen rather than anything to do with the OS. Hopefully this will put paid to the various rumours than Windows Mobile and capacitive screens will never meet.

Texas Instrument’s device is no slouch either, supporting as mentioned about HDMI HD output, which was demoed for the WMExperts team live.
