Although I've managed to get a feel of Windows Mobile 6.5 because the OmniaLite I've reviewed sports that OS, I'm reserving my review until I get an official and final build of the OS considering that the Samsung B7300 OmniaLite I've reviewed has yet to hit some markets (I'll try to finish the review within the week). Anyways, the big blogs such as engadgetmobile already have their impressions of WinMo 6.5 up and of course they're not impressed. I have to agree with them that WinMo 6.5 is not really a major update, it's like Microsoft did their own skinning of WinMo 6.1 but HTC did a better job with their TouchFlo 3D.
WMExperts also has their own review and this one has screenshots as well as side by side screenshot comparison of the old WinMo 6.1 and the new 6.5 OS.
As for me, WinMo 6.5 looks okay enough. I mean, its a good alternative if I get tired of TouchFlo 3D but it's not really again, the update is nothing major. You're better off with the SPB mobile shell with some great skins.
