Willcom teases with Windows Mobile 6 equipped "X"

Chris Ziegler

Those crazy cats at Japan's Willcom don't let their bizarre PHS network stop them from releasing some of the most lustworthy devices on the planet. For whatever reason, Windows Mobile seems to be particularly loved in Willcom's ranks, and the trend continues with the upcoming "X" (opposite NTT DoCoMo's "Z," perhaps?). Little is known about what the phone will look like -- or what exactly it'll do, for that matter -- but we do know that Windows Mobile 6 is under the hood and it'll be a good deal smaller and thinner ("slim-thickness," to use Willcom's verbage) than its predecessor. Is this a bittersweet goodbye, W-ZERO3?
