Windows Mobile 6 cannot be upgraded to Windows Phone 7

Natasha Kwan, Microsoft’s General Manager for Mobile Communications Business in the Asia-Pacific market, posted the following information to the tech blog APC:

“Because we have very specific requirements for Windows Phone 7 Series the current phones we have right now will not be upgradable.”

This won’t do wonders for Windows Mobile sales this year, which are already in a very steep decline.
