Microsoft is taking its testing program to Windows mobile 7. Thank God, finally an improvement to windows mobile is close by. But a Q3 release is not a very good thing

According to ZDNet Taiwan, Microsoft is set release Windows Mobile 7 to OEMs for testing in Q1 2010, with a launch date set for Q3 2010, a year after the launch ofWindows Mobile 6.5.

The so-called “Maldives” program is set to collect feedback from OEMs, and ZDNet reports Microsoft is stepping up development in the face of declining market share.
