Microsoft Corp announced that it would start making software for CDMA-based wireless networks in US. The plans are for over 100 million potential users using new releases of Microsoft's Smartphone and Pocket PC software for mobile phones and wireless-enabled handheld computers. CDMA technology is used by the biggest U.S. wireless carrier Verizon and fourth-ranked mobile operator Sprint PCS. Those operators are currently upgrading their CDMA networks to third-generation technology, which will allow mobile phone
users to browse the Web, send e-mail and swap pictures -- features that are nearly ubiquitous on computers using Microsoft's software.
