Microsoft wants to reduce amount of future WinMo devices
A new challenger to Windows Mobile emerged this week during the CES when Palm rolled the dice and introduced the new Pre smartphone that will run on the financially strapped firm's brand new WebOS. Palm's new phone and OS have created quite a buzz.
What lies ahead for Microsoft and WinMo? Will version 7 help them gather some momentum?

winmo is a powerful but clunky arse OS. The omnia has taken a good stride in the right direction as to how to make it .. better.. all the hype over htc, they havent really done much with the OS to improve it over the touchflo. maybe one day someone will make an even better interface and make it more "flashy" or "user friendly" like an android, BB, or apple OS. it really needs a major refresh.

Tod Peters needs to find a new job. Suggesting that Microsoft wants to stifle innovation in order for their software to 'integrate better' is tantamount to throwing in the towel and saying 'our software sucks'.

You are a tool. The reason that apple can successfully trash Windows is because they allow shite manufacturers to brand their OS. ACER is a prime example. By preventing garbage devices from flooding the market, Windows Mobile will regain it''s market niche in the Smartphone industry. I have beeen using windows mobile for 6 years and I have never had a problem because I buy quality devices (specifcally Samsung and HTC professional touchscreen phones). I personally think that the non-touch variant should disappear as most of those devices contribute to WinMo's bad rap.
