Microsoft working on a new smartphone running a different version of Windows Mobile24
Well, it appears that the Redmond-based company still flirts with the idea of being a major player in the smartphone industry. According to multiple Microsoft insiders, the company hasn't completely lost interest in Windows Mobile and the hardware that could run the OS.
As a matter fact, it appears that Microsoft is currently testing a new smartphone running “a separate branch of Windows Mobile.” The UI of the new OS is completely different than anything we've seen until now.
Also, Microsoft might have been removed support for Silverlight apps in the updated version of Windows Mobile in favor of “new mobile experiences.”
Both the device and the new version of Windows Mobile are still in early stages of development, which means Microsoft might cancel the project at any time if the results are not encouraging.
