Internet Explorer 6 For Windows Mobile Devices – No Upgrades or Updates – New Devices Only

Filed under: Gadgets,Microsoft,Windows Mobile — spiderwebwoman at 5:09 pm on Tuesday, November 18, 2008

Recently the Windows Mobile team blogged a few bits about the upcoming Internet Explorer engine on Windows Mobile devices that will give you close to the full desktop experience on your device, sort of like the iPhone users have had since mid-2007. Microsoft has decided to only make this available on new devices, a factoid only revealed way down in the comments. There will be no upgrades, direct from MS or an OEM, to put this on your fancy new Windows Mobile device. It apparently can’t handle it.
“Regarding making IE Mobile available as a separate download or update, the rich media experiences that IE Mobile 6 enables require more powerful, advanced devices. That is why it will not be available as an upgrade or direct download for current phones, but rather will be made available on new phones.”
