This is a direct shot at the market currently dominated by Research In Motion
(RIM), makers of the insanely popular BlackBerry device and software. Part of
Microsoft's goal for this fiscal year is to sell more than 20 million licenses
to its Windows Mobile operating system. There will be new phones that support
SCMD Manager 2008 coming out early next year from Palm, Motorola and others.
For its part, RIM has been incessantly boosting what the BlackBerry can do
beyond simple voice and text messaging and e-mail. The mobile landscape is shaping
up as the next big battleground.
Do you use Windows Mobile? Do you use a BlackBerry? How will you reconcile
using both once it becomes more feasible? What's your mobile strategy overall?
