|Internet Explorer Mobile 6 only in new phones
November 18, 2008 [General] | By Edward J. R.
This is plain outrageous:
My name is Khush and I am from the Windows Mobile team.
Let me take this opportunity to respond to some of the questions raised:
1. IE Mobile 6 is expected to show up in devices at the end of 2008 or early 2009.
2. We understand your concerns about bringing IE 6 to the Windows Mobile platform. The features we deliver arenít always articulated and defined by version numbers. For instance, although this release is called Internet Explorer Mobile 6, there are components from other versions of Internet Explorer for the desktop. One example of that is the support for Jscript v5.7 which we brought over from Internet Explorer 8 for the desktop.
3. 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.
