A couple of years back Ballmer said in an interview about Microsoft’s Mobile strategy “I like our strategy, I like it a lot”. Trouble is, whether or not Ballmer likes it or not, whatever that strategy was at the time, it doesn’t seem to have led anywhere that involves significant market share. Apple have whipped their butts with the iPhone, the Palm Pre although slow on the uptake right now is light years ahead of anything that Windows Mobile 6.0 can offer, and Google Android handsets are also being eaten up like hotcakes, and the major manufacturers don’t even have their Android phones on the shelves yet.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Windows Mobile is a pile of junk. It’s worthless. It pains me to say that because I used Windows CE PDA’s for years and absolutely loved them, and I so wanted Windows Mobile to be a evolutionary step forward for Windows CE, but it wasn’t – Microsoft broke it. Windows Mobile is unreliable, unstable, for most of the time on my HTC Wing, it’s practically unusble. Would I buy another Windows Mobile device? No, absolutely not. Complete waste of money. My next purchase will either be an Android based phone or an iPhone.
