Windows Mobile OS: "... a battle it cannot win..."

Microsoft plots mobile group improvements
http://tinyurl.com/mnxsyb

The last paragraph of the article says it all. Does Ballmer understand
that his Mobile OS is so far out of date the people no longer ask for it
when they go to purchase a new cell phone? MS has screwed this market up
BIG time. No doubt, thanks to SB's lack of understanding of the market.

Microsoft would be smart to release apps for other phones, such as a Windows
Live/Bing Thing for the iPhone/Touch. By MS making MS visible, that helps
them. The opposite of that is invisibility: having them sink into Mobile
OS oblivion is of no practical use to the company yet they choose to go down
this path. It's hard to believe that MS is THIS poorly mismanaged.

In MLB terms, is Dusty Baker managing Microsoft now? 😉

Even my die hard Microsoft programmer buddies dumped their Windows
Mobile phones.

That's how Microsoft works though. Build it. Sit on it. Wait for
competition to become fierce and then start making it better.

I heard a while back that they were just putting the finishing touches
on Internet Explorer 6 for Windows mobile and it might be available on
phones the beginning of next year.
