The Windows Mobile 6.1 updates have been slow to roll out to current Windows Mobile smartphones, but looks like today is the lucky day for SprintHTC Touch owners. Available for download from HTC's Web site, the software update doesn't just bring the latest mobile operating system. You also get upgraded to EV-DO Rev. A; advanced GPS with support for Sprint Navigation; the Opera Mobile Web browser; and a full onscreen QWERTY keyboard. Hey, not too shabby. And remember, be sure to back up all your data and files before you download that update, otherwise it all goes bye-bye.

A Windows Mobile 6.1 software update has also been released for the Sprint Mogul, which brings support for Sprint TV as well. This adds to the EV-DO Rev. A boost, advanced GPS capabilities, and Task Manager tool that were distributed in a previous software upgrade. The WM 6.1 update is available for download here.
