,----[ Quote ]
| Internet Explorer Mobile (formerly known as Pocket Internet

Does Microsoft Windows Mobile Have A Future?

,----[ Quote ]
| Name Change = Desperation
| Even Microsoft seems to know it is in trouble. One clear sign of a failing product line
| is a name change. After using Windows Mobile since the operating system's launch at the
| turn of the millennium, the company decided that phones running version 6.5 of the
| operating system will be known as Windows phones, a subtle but telling distinction.
| So where will Microsoft go from here? The company has put a lot of time and money into
| its mobile OS. Because of its tight connection with Microsoft Office desktop
| applications, the operating system has had significant appeal to small and medium
| businesses. But that integration also carried a price in terms of ease of use and
| performance. And the market seems to be saying Office compatibility may no longer be
| enough to compete with faster, sexier, and easier-to-use smartphones running on other
| operating systems.

Did Microsoft Just Throw WinMo Under A Bus?

,----[ Quote ]
| If you're itching to buy that hot new WinMo smartphone, go for it. Just don't

Is Googleâs Android Killing Windows Mobile?

,----[ Quote ]
| I wonder if it will be too late for the company to make a comeback, similar
| to Zune struggling to playsanjay  catch-up with the iPod. So while there is a
| lot of focus on Apple v Google, the real battle is actually between Microsoft
| Windows Mobile and Google Android. It looks like Google has drawn its first
| blood.

Motorola pushes ahead with Android phones

| networking with the Android devices, he said, and will offer a range of
| devices in the high- and mid-tier price ranges. "We are probably investing as
| much as anybody on the Android platform," he added.


Motorola Pledges Cheaper Android Phones

| Motorola phones will run the Google Android OS in a call with analysts today,
| continuing a big bet on the Linux-based system.
