[News] [Rival] Microsoft to Betray Phone Partners

Hash: SHA1

Microsoft confirms Izune in June 

,----[ Quote ]
| IT LOOKS LIKE Microsoft is getting closer to launching the Zune phone we told 
| you about earlier, here and here. 
| We have been saying for a while that the launch is quite imminent, production 
| snafu's aside, and Microsoft just confirmed it. 
| [...]
| Hold off? Why, so you can be disappointed by the new Ibrick SP3, then go out 
| and buy an Iphone or Pre? So you can feel the warm fuzzyness of owning a 
| Izune, and by that I mean the heat of the Nvidia chipset burning your leg?  


Could this be the hardware spec for Microsoft's Pink phone?


Microsoft's software profitability erodes (profit down over 30%). They tried to
sell hardware with Zune and XBox. They failed miserably.


Windows Mobile Users Complain About Upgrade Policy

,----[ Quote ]
| While the answers a Windows Mobile executive provided to questions posted to
| a Facebook discussion provided very little information, the questions posed
| by 55 fans hint at what users want in the mobile platform.
| Aaron Woodman, director for consumer experiences for Windows Mobile, invited
| anyone to submit questions about Windows Mobile on a Facebook page. When he
| began posting answers more than two weeks later, his most common response was
| along the lines of "nothing to announce."


Controversy Erupts Over Possible MS Mobile App Fee

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft may charge developers if they submit within a year more than five
| applications or application updates to the Windows Mobile Marketplace, a move
| that has some developers concerned that the store won't be able to compete
| with the iPhone App Store or the Android Market.


Microsoft kills Windows Mobile honeycomb

,----[ Quote ]
| VOLE HAS CHANGED the distinctive honeycomb interface on the new Windows
| Mobile 6.5 following shedloads of complaints.


Windows Mobile Is Still Immobile

,----[ Quote ]
| News Analysis. My reaction to today's Microsoft announcements coming out of
| the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona: Too little. Too late. Too bad.


Windows Mobile misses annual shipment target

,----[ Quote ]
| Lees, a veteran Microsoft executive who moved from the Server & Tools unit in
| February, attributed the lower-than-projected Windows Mobile sales to some
| devices coming to market slightly later than previously expected. He declined
| to say which ones.


Why Windows Mobile Is In Trouble

,----[ Quote ]
| Recently it was revealed that the newest version of Microsoft’s mobile
| operating system, Windows Mobile 7.0, would be delayed until as late as 2010.
| The updated version, which the company’s partners had reportedly been hoping
| to have by early 2009, was aimed at giving Microsoft a bigger presence on the
| mobile stage. But delay or no delay, I don’t think it would have been enough.
| With competition from a resurgent BlackBerry platform from Research in
| Motion, Apple’s iPhone and most importantly, the Google Phone platform (I
| will analyze Nokia’s Symbian platform in a separate post at a later date),
| Microsoft’s mobile platform is facing its toughest environment yet.
| [...]
| Sometime later this month, the G-1 will go on sale and people (at least those
| in the U.S.) will be able to experience the difference between a Windows
| Mobile- and an Android-based phone for themselves. Of course, some will find
| the shortcomings of the Google Phone — and according to Mossberg, there are
| many — grating. Others, like me, will be suitably impressed. And if they’re
| impressed enough, most handset makers will want to join the party.
