Windows Mobile 6.5 Reviews Coming In

A start to sum it up is a nice wrap up over at PC World. My favorite so far is from mobilecrunch which includes this gem:

Typing on Windows Mobile 6.5 is an absolute miserable chore. How bad? Every time we sat down to review this thing, we got so frustrated with the keyboard that we had to stop. We. Hate. This. Keyboard. Typing on this keyboard is like sewing with your feet. Even with a stylus (do not even TRY typing without the stylus. You can not. Your fingers will hit every button except the one you intend to hit), an awkward lag between letters and the overall clunkiness made us want to rip out our hair. If nothing else did it, typing in Windows Mobile 6.5 immediately killed the entire OS for us.

Some in there aren't as bad, but the consensus for most of them is that while there are a couple of shining stars in there, they don't shine too brightly, and are overshadowed by the huge bag of FAIL that the rest of the OS is. Sounds like MS really mailed this one in, giving basically an IE update, a new home screen, and nothing else.
