Microsoft's new mobile phone operating system

NEW YORK (AFP) – Microsoft unveils a new mobile phone operating system on Monday in what is being seen as a potentially make-or-break effort by the US software giant to remain a player in the hotly competitive niche.

Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer is to take the wraps off a new line of smartphones powered by Windows Phone 7 (WP7) at an event in New York and the devices are expected to hit stores around the world in the next few weeks.

Well, if Motorola won't give them a break, then who will?

Re: Microsoft's new mobile phone operating system

as usual the US media throws up on its shoes relative to mobile...

asshats....

rim/apple/android is not the race....

Leaving out Nokia Symbian, which is 30% mkt share China...70% mkt share India is ridiculous.


Symbian/rim/android is the global race right now.
Apple is 2% global market share, and its market share for global smartphones has peaked and declined.

Jobs worship is so pathetic...(yes...I love my Mac/iTouch combo....but jeez...)

Yes sales are up way up, but market share is declining.


Samsung is looking to launch Bada....and they want $75 smartphones here...

HP is going to spend $10 + billion to get Palm back in the race...
again....sub $100 phones worldwide..

Java is still the core of IBM delivery world wide .

And Nokia is dual tracking with Meego. ....


Welcome to 1983/ 1984 when there were 5 flavors of DOS and MS-DOS etc....

the Mobile OS bloodbath is only in the beginnings of Act II, of this

tragedy or comedy.....

the 8th/ 9th mobile OS should be code named Yorick....(grin)....

now where did I leave that Motorola brickphone ??????


MS is going to try to squeeze what......$7 ....$15 per handset...?

If MS does not have a 2x to 3x of its market share in 24 months...
Ballmer will be forced to resign.

4 mobile / desktop OS/ cloud ... failures

No, they're not. They know damned well that Symbian is dead and they are desperately trying to avoid licensing Android from Google.

And my HTC Legend fucking rocks. I've had it for 5 months now and even the iPhone pales in comparison.

Re: Microsoft's new mobile phone operating system

Samsung Galaxy S rocks. Best mobile phone ever.

But I have to be honest, once I saw the iPhone 4 screen, I couldn't choose anything else.

There is simple no words to describe it.

Re: Microsoft's new mobile phone operating system

re: Symbian...

yes....languishing for developers...
certainly not attracting loads of new ones...

below.....paste from a good friend of mine...

And third, remember Symbian is more than Nokia. Symbian is the bestselling phone operating system in Japan, where the world's most advanced phones are made. The typical Japanese 'featurephone' runs on Symbian but is not considered a 'real' smartphone because it does not allow end-users to install apps (the phone OS is closed to the user). Yet this means significant Symbian sales out of Japan come what may. And NTT DoCoMo the biggest operator in Japan just announced a partnership with half a dozen Japanese mobile industry giants to create an app store, and a smartphone OS evolution path, to Symbian (and to Linux Mobile the other major smartphone OS platform used in Japan). So yes, there is the occasional Samsung Symbian phone and the Japanese and every so often even a SonyEricsson etc. So Symbian is not just Nokia, Symbian's market share is about 45% of the new phone sales globally, and the installed base of all smartphones in the world is nearly 60% Symbian. Now that Symbian is an open source foundation, it is also finding new support, even as the OS obviously shows its age in many ways.

Re: Microsoft's new mobile phone operating system

symbian has been a dead end for a decade now, android is clearly the horse to beat

Apple's ios is shiny and looks like it'll scale to other devices nicely but ultimately closed, and destined to lose to android. I don't give the reborn palm "webOS" any chance, and there simply are no other credible contenders.
