Microsoft talks Windows Phone 7 and enterprise

ZDNet has spoken to Charlie Kindell, Windows Phone 7 program manager at Microsoft, about Windows Phone 7, Windows Mobile and the enterprise market.

He mentions that Windows Phone 7 was designed for use in personal and professional life, but was unfortunately not able to provide much evidence for this.  He however did say that Microsoft intended to support Windows Mobile 6.5 as long as the market wanted it.

He confirmed that at ship date companies will not be able to release vertical apps only to their handsets, which seems a pretty large omission, and again makes the OS unsuitable compared to Windows Mobile, where companies can even push applications wirelessly to managed handsets.  We have heard however that this, like many other features, will be added in the future.

Keep an eye on ZDNet for part 2 of their interview, coming soon.
