The Verizon XV6900 has, at long last, received its upgrade to Windows Mobile 6.1. Also included in this is a faster version of EV-DO.
This isn’t exactly the newest model offered by this carrier, but the upgrade to Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional definitely brings it up to the latest version of Microsoft’s operating system for smartphones.
This OS upgrade sports a number of enhancements, including an improved version of Internet Explorer Mobile and threaded SMS messages.
Faster Wireless Networking
While many smartphones have been bumped up to Windows Mobile 6.1, this doesn’t automatically include faster data transfers. The XV6900 is an exception.
Along with this system software upgrade is an improvement in this smartphone’s wireless networking capabilities. Specifically, it is jumping from the standard version of EV-DO to EV-Do Rev. A.
This ROM upgrade is available on the PCD website.
