A photo gallery of the new smartphones running Windows Mobile 6.5.

Microsoft has officially launched Windows Mobile 6.5, an upgrade to its mobile operating system. While not a major overhaul of the OS, 6.5 does bring a number of enhancements and new services. Interface changes were made to make Windows phones more touch- and consumer-friendly. Internet Explorer Mobile got some much-needed attention, adding new navigation tools as well as Flash Lite support. Microsoft also launched its own app store, Windows Marketplace for Mobile , and a backup service called My Phone .

Of course, with new software, there also comes new hardware. Microsoft has already said that it will launch more than 30 Windows 6.5 phones by the end of the year. Here is a photo collection of some of the smartphones that have already been announced.
