Microsoft is planning to invest $1 billion in research and development for Windows Mobile

microsoft-logo,B-M-194818-3 Microsoft’s Bill Koefoed has told Pacific Crest analyst Brendan Barnacle that Microsoft is planning to invest $1 billion in research and development for Windows Mobile.

Bill also poopooed any suggestion that Microsoft was interested in an acquisition of Palm  or RIM.

"Koefoed also noted that the operating system firm Palm and Research in Motion both have their own set of development challenges," Barnacle writes.

In Palm’s case the massive failure of WebOS is clear, and despite RIM’s huge success in the market, there is also very little doubt their OS is in need of a major revamp.

Hopefully much of that billion will be used for further intelligent integration of Microsoft’s various online and desktop services in their various mobile operating systems.
