windows_mobile_65_facebook1 Digitimes reports that a Microsoft executive has claimed over 30 handsets with Windows Mobile 6.5 from 15 vendors will be coming this year still.  That’s quite a lot of handsets in only 2 months, meaning its going to get pretty busy here at WMPU.

Benjamin Tan, senior director, GCR Mobile Team Unit at Microsoft China revealed the numbers as he met a group of reporters in China recently.

Of course this number was thrown around more than 6 months ago at Mobile World Congress, but with the end of the year so close its a bit of a challenge to see where all these handsets will come from.

Which leaves us with a pretty nice game – Name the Handset!

I will start us of (upgrades count also):

  1. HTC Leo
  2. HTC Warhawk/ HTC Pure
  3. HTC Fortress/ HTC Touch Pro 2 
  4. HTC Touch2
  5. HTC Touch Diamond 2
  6. HTC Imagio
  7. HTC Quilin
  8. HTC Ozone
  9. HTC Snap
  10. Samsung Omnia 2
  11. Samsung Omnia Pro B7610
  12. Samsung Omnia Pro B7320
  13. Samsung Omnia Pro B7330
  14. Samsung Omnia Lite
  15. Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 (how could I forget!)
  16. Acer F1
  17. Acer E1
  18. Acer C1
  19. Acer L1
  20. LG GM750
  21. LG GW620
  22. LG Monaco
  23. Toshiba TG01
  24. Toshiba TG02
  25. HP Obsidian
  26. Motorola A3300
  27. Gigabyte Gsmart M1220
  28. Casio Cassiopeia DT-5300 M30S
  29. Alcatel OT-S988W
  30. Sunno Q880

Anyone want to fill out the list?  We seem to be short a bit on vendors. And maybe we should not be counting those upgrades after all. Let is know in the comments.

Edit: Thanks for the commenters. Here’s a bit more honest list with the duplicates removed.  Remember we are only counting handsets being released this year.  We are still short of OEM’s however.  . Any more suggestions? Anything from Palm 😉 ?
