Sprint brings Windows Mobile 6.1 to Touch and Mogul by HTC
Sprint has announced key enhancements, including support for EV-DO Rev. A data speeds, as part of a software upgrade available for the Touch by HTC (pictured). The Mogul by HTC software upgrade will now support Windows Mobile 6.1.

Introduced in October 2007, the Touch combines the Windows Mobile with advanced multimedia features for accessing business and personal essentials. The update for Touch by HTC is available here.

The software update enables connectivity to CDMA EV-DO Rev. A networks. It means wherever EV-DO Rev. A coverage is available, average download speeds will increase from 400-700 kbps to 600 kbps-1.4 mbps and average upload speeds will increase from 50-70 kbps to 350-500 kbps.

Also being introduced is the enhanced GPS capabilities, allowing support of popular applications such as Sprint Navigation. Sprint Navigation provides audio and visual turn-by-turn directions, more than 10 million local listings, and one-click traffic rerouting, similar to an in-vehicle GPS system.

Opera Browser is now part of this software release, bringing full Internet content and images to smartphones and PDAs, offering several new features for functionality, security, usability, customization, searching, saving, taking shortcuts and accessing Web content.

The Mogul by HTC is a premium Windows Mobile device and was the first EVDO Rev. A-capable handset. The new software is available here. This software update enables Sprint TV on this device.

The updates on both the Touch and the Mogul include an improved operating system, Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.1.
