In this cut throat competition, none of the major player is sitting idle. They all are working equally hard and really have to make a run for their money. With nokia launching its OVI store which is an online application store for the nokia mobile phones just like iphone has it in the form of apple store. To counter the serious competition posed by nokia and iphone and all the other major players, Microsoft has launched its new windows mobile platform called Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.5.
The major reason behind the launch of this new platform was to target the application for the touch screen mobile phones. It ensures new and better touch-friendly features and quicker navigation. While the experts say that the attempt is to conquer iphone but they also say that iphone is no kid, its big player and matching iphone’s standard is going to take a lot. The new phones by Microsoft are due to be released somewhere in the month of July later this year.
What best is that the home screen is carefully optimized to provide as much navigation as possible. While the control mechanism resembles the iphone’s flick thing but in windows mobile phones, it’s done with a difference. While the vertical flick enables you to scroll vertically but the horizontal flick enables you to dig deep into the layers. Nothing much can be said about the performance of this new OS which are due to be launched later this year in the month of july but one thing can be said, competing with iphone’s popularity is going to be more difficult than competing with the actual performance of iphone.
Moreover Microsoft is also planning to introduce a new web browser in the mobile platform but at the same time also planning to release IE8 for the pc platform.
