Cheap SmartPhones from Microsoft
Peabody It is the name of the pillar of Microsoft's new strategy in mobile telephony. These are the new terminals that will be manufactured in partnership with the Singapore company Flextronics and which will be a kind of "white label" for Microsoft. It will be SmartPhones GSM / GPRS with Windows Mobile as operating system and Windows Media Player as content player. With this agreement, Microsoft lays the first stone in the path towards its objective that is none other than allowing it to enter the sector of mid-range and low-end phones. Will it succeed in scratching some market for Symbian? The announcement was made at the 3GSM World Congress in Cannes, which has already brought us the announcement of the Motorola SLVR V8 and which promises a barrage of news that we will give due account of.
