    So how different is 6.5 standard from 6.1?

    First of all where'd you hear this from?

    And secondly...I've done some reading about smartphones/pocket pcs and Windows Mobile...and upgrading windows mobile on the Code from 6.1 to 6.5 wouldn't be that big of an improvement because this is not a touchscreen/Pocket PC. For smartphones, 6.5 only adds MSN widgets, Windows MarketPlace (which you can download anyway), very minor email enhancements (makes it easier to select contacts), and a slighty improved web browser (which is still not as good nor as fast Opera).

    I'll pass

    Wow, bitter much?

    Regardless, 6.5 > 6.1 no matter how minor the improvements are...the key word is improvements.

    The home screen is better laid out as well on 6.5 vs. 6.1.... I might actually buy my code back again...the caliber is just not cutting it for business uses...

    LOL...tell that to anyone who upgraded from XP to Vista. Yeah, probably a bad comparison, but it's how I remind myself that when it comes to upgrading..if the improvements on an upgrade are miniscule or don't offer any real incentives to me, it's a waste of time...especially if you end up having to reset your phone/reinstall/configure apps/games in order to apply the update. (Hopefully this isn't the case.)

    It is surprising though that Metro is actually going to let you upgrade the OS anyway.

    But on a more important note, I have noticed that there were no major enhancements made to 6.5 that will prevent 6.1 from being able to run a smartphone app made for 6.5...in fact I haven't found a single smartphone app that said "6.5 required" ...they all say 6.0+

    I've actually had the Code since the first week it has come out and it never froze on me yet. Maybe I got lucky with a good one?
