Microsoft to Launch Dual Platform Strategy With Two Versions of Windows Mobile OS in Coming Months

Do You Want to See a Cell Phone From Microsoft?

The Zune Phone rumor that surfaced in late 2008 obviously didn't come out in 2009 (we got the Zune HD instead), but there is still new Microsoft cell phone news this year.

In the coming months, Microsoft will launch a dual mobile platform strategy — meaning they'll release two versions of Windows Mobile.

Windows Mobile 6.5 will launch Oct. 1, and then next February, we'll see a version of it with a touch screen UI. The ultimate goal? To compete with the iPhone's OS and Android.

This news is interesting, sure, but more interesting is that there's still no news about Microsoft making a cell phone. It seems like the right time — Google and Apple are succeeding as handset makers and it's a good time to compete. Do you want Microsoft to make a cell phone?
