Why are you still using Windows Mobile ?
Up until the last couple of years Windows Mobile faced no major threats in the touch screen smartphone division. As a result of this the innovation in Windows Mobile over the years has been minimal too. Check out the video below which shows the evolution of Windows Mobile.
When the iPhone was introduced in to the market see how Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer laughs at Apple iPhone
now-a-days I don’t think he feels the same way. Its not just the iPhone , Android has got a good deal of followers and with version 2.0 it looks better than ever..
When Android was released good ol Steve dismissed it as it will never be a threat to Windows Mobile. Then there was the claim that WM6.5 and WM7 will coexist in the market and while WM7 targets the iPhone Market , WM6.5 will fight with Android market. Lets see how that battle goes WM6.5 vs Android.
More and more people want to try android on their Windows Mobile devices.. How many do you think are even contemplating the idea of doing it the other way around ?
Check out the search results for ” windows mobile on android ” and ” android on windows mobile ” , the former query has no info on how to get Windows Mobile on an Android Device but you will find a lot of tutorials on the latter. Anyone want to take a guess at what consumers want ?
Microsoft’s only hope of getting back as a major player in the smartphone market rests With WM7 which is due to come out in 2010, the only problem is will there be any one willing to shift to Windows Mobile by then ?
For the sake of argument lets say the HTC Touch HD2 aka the HTC Leo comes with WM6.5 and Android and you have iPhone 3GS all for the same price , What would you choose ?
I will go with the Android.
