Motorola not done with Windows Mobile yet; all hail Caesar?
We have heard the story before that the future of Motorola lies in the hands of the little green robot. After all, the Android slingin' Sholes seems to have captured the biggest buzz that the Schaumburg, Illinois based company has seen in years. But it doesn't appear that the company has totally given up on Microsoft's mobile OS. On the web site Linkedin, a profile posted by a person who claims to be a Senior Software Engineer for Motorola shows that his recent work experience includes joining a team developing a product called Caesar. It also shows that he has been working with a beta version of Windows Mobile 7.0. So from one profile, we learn that Motorola is still working on devices using Windows Mobile and we also learn that the timing is still on track for a mid-2010 delivery of Windows Mobile 7.0.

The caesar project could just be a process to migrate phones or programs from WM6 to WM7, not necessarily a phone. He is a software programmer, not a hardware manufacturer. But nevertheless... i think moto needs to step up their game before they drop off the face of the mobile world.

BEFORE they drop off the face of the earth? Where do you think they are now? Name the last handset Moto made that has ANY market hold. Betcha can't. Sholes won't save them either. Nice phone, but as usual of verizon, it'll be 6 months behind b/c they think blackberry should be the only phone maker doing business.
