Is the OKTA Touch compatible with Windows Phone 6.5 (or 7)?

What is gained by upgrading to either of these?

Telecom does not seem to have any upgrade later than Windows Mobile 6.1, so where can one get the newer versions?

Have tried a number of sources but the links I found on google were no longer current.

Any help would be appreciated.

You might be able to find an update to 6.5 on xda-developers.com

but wp7 is only working with HTC HD2 atm.

Found NFSFAN's WM6.5 1.00 FINAL ROM.rar which looks like it has the HTC CDMA (OKTA) stuff.

Any caveats or pitfalls I should look out for?

yes. make sure the ROM you download is for the CDMA version and not GSM.

Yes, checked that.

However the README.DOC is missing from the archive.

Upgrade went OK.

Everything works, but it doesn't seem much different from WM6.1 Frown.

Will see how it goes in the next few days or so.

Thanks for all the help.

new addition is the windows marketplace, few minor bug fixes, titanium screen UI which you can change in option/themes somewhere as opposed to HTC's UI
