Besides working on Windows Mobile 7, some portion of Microsoft’s mobile engineers are continuing to work on Windows Mobile 6.5, brining it up to date with technologies like capacitive screens and making the UI more palatable to this generation of smartphone users.

The latest build is build 28002, which has been dubbed Windows Mobile 6.5.3 (yes, I don’t know what happened to 6.5.2 either).  Its not clear what has changed, but as usual the UI again shows some more polish, especially in the controls, as can be seen in the clock alarm setting screen.  It is also reported to be faster than before, which is always a welcome change.

Read more about this build in this XDA-Developers thread, and some more information on the build numbering scheme at FuzeMobility here.
