Is old news.
Many people myself included have been running pre release versions of WM6.5 for a long time now.
In my opinion WM6.5 is not that much more touch friendly than 6.1, better but not great.
TouchFlo 3D 2.5 running on top of WM6.5 is awesome though, best of both worlds.
You can have all the WIn Mo apps and the touch interface of TF3D!
