While reading some news about the latest OTA (Over The Air) Android updates over at Engadget, Clinton Fitch decided to write up a letter to Microsoft. I know that Microsoft may not listen to all of us, but c’mon [...]
There was quite a big uproar yesterday where many blogs made fun of Microsoft’s decision to keep it’s licensing fee, especially when other companies like Google (Android) and Nokia (Symbian) are now free and open-source.
My initial impression was that, hey, it’s only $15 at most. And Windows Mobile devices sell for a lot more [...]
The Android’s first device, T-Mobile’s G1, was recently announced and it didn’t take long for Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer to make a valid point:
“We do,” Ballmer told Reuters, when asked whether his firm would stick with licensing fees. “We are doing well, we believe in the value of what we are doing.”

There are a lot of articles out there that compares these 2 platforms but it’s usually very one-sided. Tim Hillebrand from Smartphone & Pocket PC Magazine Blog has just published an article that steps away from the norm. He discusses the the differences and gives a rather neutral view on both. Here’s an excerpt:
If your device is one of those that had Windows Live removed by the carrier/manufacturer, then this is for you. Microsoft has just made available Windows Live for Windows Mobile as a download which means you can now add the application to your Pocket PC.

The folks over there, who are currently covering CTIA, say that an update is imminent and that it might even come out before WM6.1 is released to the public (officially). Which is pretty cool because Live Search is a really great applications and this upgrade seems to make [...]
It seems that Microsoft is working on a new project according to a new job listing on the company’s web site. Microsoft apparently plans to connect its mobile-phone technology to other Microsoft products through a “unified entertainment service.” So far, Windows Mobile has typically been perceived as a business tool though we know that [...]
