MSMobiles say they have the low down on Microsoftâ€™s Mobile World Congress announcements, and what they leaked makes quite a bit of sense.
First the bits we think we know already:
Windows Mobile 7 will be introduced with Zune, Xbox, Bing integration. It will feature a new kernel,Games and Music improvements and a new user interface, based on Windows Presentation Foundation. Development will take place in the latest version of Visual Studio.
Now the new bits:
Clearly in a direct response to Nokia and Android, Windows Mobile (not sure which version) will come with free navigation (presumably turn by turn). Also clearly in a response to all the open source mobile OSâ€™s, Windows Mobile 6.X will be free to developing markets.
As mentioned above, these changes make perfect sense, and shows a Microsoft prepared to respond much more rapidly than before to changes in the mobile market.
What do our readers think? Is this a sufficient response to the competitive pressure Microsoft faces? Let us know below.
