Windows Mobile 7 slated for 2010?

Posted on Thursday, February 05 2009 @ 00:05:22 CET by

Motorola co-CEO Sanjay Jha told analysts that he believes Google's Android platform is more competitive this year than Windows Mobile 6. The company will give more effort and focus to Android phones this year, but Jha indicated the firm will participate in a more focused way in Windows Mobile 7 in 2010. A couple of months ago Microsoft delayed Windows Mobile 7 until at least the second half of 2009 and Jha's comments hint Windows Mobile 7 may have been delayed even further.
In answering an analyst's question during the Q-and-A portion of his company's earnings call, Jha said: "Yes, we are still committed to Windows Mobile. As you know, Windows 6 series is available in 2009 and as compared to Android, we believe in 2009 Android is more competitive; more of our effort and focus in 2009 is going to Android, but in 2010 when Windows 7 will become available, we will then participate in a more focused way in Windows Mobile 7 in 2010."

Without commenting on Jha's comment, a Microsoft representative said the company has "nothing to announce today."

In September, CNET News reported that Microsoft told its partners not to expect Windows Mobile 7 until at least the second half of 2009. Jha's comment seems to indicate that the deadline has been pushed back even further.
