The HTC Mogul is the latest device to get an upgrade to Windows Mobile 6.1. This helps keep this Sprint model, which debuted last year, relevant in the smartphone market.

The Mogul is one of several models that have received similar upgrades recently, including the Samsung i760 and HTC Touch. These come in the wake of the release of Windows Mobile 6.1 itself, which happened this spring.
As its version number suggests, Windows Mobile 6.1 isn’t radically different from 6.0. The major improvement Mogul users will see will be in Internet Explorer Mobile, which gets a new rendering engine based on Internet Explorer 6 for the desktop, as well as a “Zoom Out” mode for full page preview.
The upgrade also includes Microsoft’s threaded Text messaging app, and it adds support for Sprint TV.
This upgrade can be found on HTC’s website. It is available for free.
