IE9 Mobile shown at SxSW–if you find Joe Marini

There’s a big IE9 presence at SxSW this year, where Microsoft is releasing the new web browser to the world with a Texas sized party.  We just posted on the webcast, which will go live at 7:30pm CDT, but judging by the latest tweet from Windows Phone Web Platform Program Manager Joe Marini, Microsoft is showing off more than the desktop version of IE9:

Microsoft announced at MWC in Barcelona in January that IE9 Mobile would be coming to Windows Phones “later this year”, and speculation has been that it will ship with the “Mango” update, although there have been hints that it could ship significantly earlier than that.  We’ll be watching the webcast this evening with renewed interest to see if there’s any more official mention of IE9 Mobile!

    i think this is good,,but stop here what about the developers of xna when are we getting full hardware acceleration
    and the float point math hardware acceleration
    so we can make some nice games and physics
    rember to build a full scale platform, before you move to somthing else

    Do we know that “Windows Phones” mean Windows Phone 7 only, or it’s also Windows Phone Classic aka Windows Mobile 6.5? Not to live in the past, or anything, just asking.
