In this short video Engadget interviews Jerry Shen, CEO of ASUS and with Garmin one of Microsoftâ€™s Windows Phone 7 partners.
He notes that Windows Mobile 6.5.3 was a significant improvement, and was able to pull a Garmin-Asus Nuvifone M10 from his pocket, hopefully suggesting this is his personal device.
He however expressed quite a lot of enthusiasm for Windows Phone 7 (which he called Windows Mobile 7), saying he felt this was the first time it appeared Microsoft was determined to win back the mobile market.
He also said he felt the GPS functionality in smartphones was very important, and thereby justified his relationship with Garmin.
