With the announcement that Samsung and Sony Ericsson have decided to drop Windows Mobile in favor of Android, and the rumors about Dell looking at buying Palm in order to get access to their new web based OS, it looks more and more as though the traditional smart phone makers are moving away from Windows Mobile altogether. All of the smartphone makers were caught off guard when Apple released the iPhone and they all have been struggling to catch up ever since. Almost all of the cell phone makers have touch screen smart phones now and the main emphasis seems to be on matching the iPhone’s operating system. Google’s Android and Palm’s Pre operating systems seem to be the closest at this point with Microsoft’s Windows Mobile lagging far behind. It might not be worth it for a company to stay with Microsoft while they try and figure out their operating system. Major companies have already dropped Windows Mobile and there is little excitement for it. Unless something drastic changes and Windows Mobile 7 turns out to be wildly better than Android and Apple’s iPhone operating system, Microsoft may find themselves out of the smart phone market soon.
