sorry but most of you did not realize the reality...maybe Bill has learned his lesson and stops making noice of a mobile Msoft product...
...I do not know what Bill has in the pipe but
Msoft is a software supplier for Computers and presently far away from a mobile phone embedded thinking ...a special Stinger or pocket PC version does not change the situation...
-Sun Java is the same thinking, marketing, make you belive great technology supplier...
-even Symbian is not what we want (a Nokia owned/driven technology)...
As a conclusion there is no common OS technology for mobile phones today what ever the marketing guys from Msoft, Sun, Openwave, Teleca, Aplix...try to tell you
the market is large enough and needs a lot of different technologies and I hope this will stay the same a very long time...I call this the democratic mobile phone technology process...
The so called smart phone (OS phone) market is still very very young with only some 10Mio phone sold in the last 12 months..lets see what we have in 5 years .......maybe solutions from fresh young and dynamic SW companies with no historiy links in older products...
