Microsoft first announced at Mobile World Congress 2010 that it was creating a new mobile operating system to take on Apple and Google. Since then, the company has never announced a date for the launch of the OS, or the devices that are launching alongside it.
Pocket-lint is reporting today that its sources, “senior figures within the industry,” are pegging October 11 as the special day, with a New York launch event to make it all official. The handsets will then be available later that month, according to one of those sources.
According to some commentators :
Looks good. Manuf & feed will be key. So far decent makers with feeds to be determined. Imagine most majors will be on board. Win 7 Ultimate works like a dream. No crashes and runs everything. Waiting on niew IE 9 tho 8 just fine on x32 system.
Having Flash enabled us a plus too. Wouldn’t care for blank web pages.
Test will be how competes with Blackberry and stock broker’s site. Not sure if it can handle a large freestanding stock trading program. Have to test that.
Thanks for ongoing coverage on this.
