Could Motorola be Skipping WinMo 6.5 to Save Cash?

Motorola has apparently switched operating systems for their latest handset switching from Windows Mobile to Android stating they believe Android is more competitive.

However, Motorola does say when Windows Mobile 7 becomes available in 2010 they will participate in a more focused way.

Betanews had a discussion with analysts on thi subject last week with Avi Greengart, Research Dircetor for Consumer Devices as Current Analysis, and he defended Windows Mobile 6.5 as a viable OS.

So is Motorola looking to save cash simply by skipping Windows Mobile 6.5 and opting for Google Android OS due to its relatively low-cost licensing model and semi-open-source structure?
