On this particular occasion, I don’t know if this Digitimes article is quoting us, or providing new information, but the Taiwanese industry gossip rag has some more, if not new, information about Windows Mobile 7.

Digitimes, who was the original source of the claim that only Windows Mobile “6.6” will show up at Mobile World Congress, now confidently expect Windows Mobile 7 to join its older sibling on the stage.

They expect Release to Manufacturers in September 2010, with devices showing up either in Q4 2010 or Q1 2011.

They note, as we ourselves mentioned last week, that Asian localizations have not been completed yet, which has given some the impression the whole OS has been delayed.

They list the usual suspects as partners, including  Samsung Electronics, LG Electronics, Toshiba, HTC (High Tech Computer), Asustek Computer and Acer, and confirm Windows Mobile 7 will support Zune, Xbox Live and Silverlight.
