Where can I buy a Windows Mobile 6.5 tablet or can I install WM 6.5 on an Android tablet PC?

I want to buy a 7″ or 10″ tablet, preferably with internal GPS, to run some Windows Mobile 6.5 software I already have. But I cant find one. Google searches come up with a C-Motech Mangrove, but this doesn’t seem to be for sale anywhere. Anyone got an alternative?

If I buy a tablet PC or an Android tablet, could I change the OS to Win Mobile 6.5?

      Thanks. It looks to me like DualBoot lets you install Android on a Win Mobile device... I want the other way round!

    Windows Mobile is pretty much a dead platform, so I don't think you're going to find a tablet for it. Microsoft's moved completely over the Windows 7 Phone, which I don't think can run Windows Mobile software. Sorry!

      There's this, but I'm not sure if there's a GPS in it:

        Thanks. I've seen this page before... I think they only produced a demo for a show, then Win 7 Phone was released and they pulled it.

      No estoy de acuerdo en que windows mobile sea un sistema operativo muerto, simplemente que no esta diseñado para cualquier usuario de celulares o portátiles multimedia, sino mas bien para usuarios mas avanzados que desean muchos mas recursos, aplicaciones y programas semiprofesionales... personalmente tengo mucha experiencia con palm y windows mobile y puedo asegurarte que si puedes usar estos dispositivos de la forma correcta, nunca quedaras decepcionado por la gran cantidad de recursos y aplicaciones que ofrecen....
