Windows Mobile-based phone shipments to reach 20 million next year

Posted on Saturday, June 30 2007 @ 19:00:06 CEST by

Sources at Microsoft Taiwan claim shipments of Windows Mobile-based devices are expected to top 20 million units in 2008. The source also said that 20 new Windows Mobile 6 handsets will be launched before the end of this year.
With the recently launched Windows Mobile 6 platform, Microsoft's share in the global mobile devices market is expected to double to 20% in 2008 from the current level of 10%, said Eddie Wu, managing director of Microsoft ODM embedded devices, Asia. Wu made the remarks as the software giant officially launched its Windows Mobile 6 OS on June 26 in Taiwan.

Additionally, shipments of Windows Mobile platform-based devices are expected to grow at a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 61.6% from 2006 to 2010, higher than the projected shipment growth for smartphones, said sources at Microsoft Taiwan, citing IDC data.

So far, more than 140 Windows Mobile-based handsets have been launched by 48 handset makers and other mobile device vendors, the sources added.
Earlier this month I reviewed the HTC S710 smartphone which uses Windows Mobile 6.
