T-Mobile Dash picks up on Windows Mobile 6

T-Mobile USA said today it will be the first in the U.S. to provide the Windows Mobile 6 software to its customers.

The software will be available starting tomorrow for the T-Mobile Dash device through a free desktop download available from T-Mobile.

Windows Mobile 6 offers a number of new capabilities, including faster access to contacts and the ability to view and edit Microsoft documents, such as HTML e-mails.

The T-Mobile Dash is built by HTC, which has its North American headquarters in Bellevue.

Windows Mobile 6 comes at a time when Microsoft has started to receive favorable reception to its mobile operating system.

The GigaOm technology blog quoted Robbie Bach, Microsoft’s president of the Entertainment and Devices Division: “Today we already outsell RIM BlackBerry in the marketplace, something most people don’t know.”

Bach followed that up by promising that Microsoft will sell 20 million Windows Mobile 6 units in 2008.

That’s still only a fraction of the over all 1 billion phones sold every year.
