With Apple’s iPhone pioneering the mobile world and Google Android as a contributory into the standard for modern mobile phones, Windows Mobile has had to claw itself to remain from being wiped from the market. Their answer to get back in? Windows Mobile 7.

To be honest, I have always been a Windows mobile fanatic. Back in the days when PalmOS and Windows for Pocket PC were the only real contenders, my natural choice was the Pocket PC because of the excellent range of applications. Some allowed you to remotely control computers, others enabled you to model and render 3D objects on the go. Among some of the nicest features, they had a simple Terminal Services applications, ideal for network admins. I even remember an Intel 386 emulator that allowed you to run Windows 95. It truly was a geek’s dream device.

Despite the leading smartphone market, it seems we haven’t seen the death of this nostalgic OS yet. Finally, we are going to see Microsoft demonstrate the new Windows Mobile 7 at the Mobile World Congress February, this year. Even though the Internet has been filled with hype from Apple and Google products, there are still many features in Windows Mobile that prevent us from ignoring the impact we are going to see on the mobile market, and the smartphone era.

A personal favorite I am looking forward to is better speech recognition technology, which is very “Star Trek” allowing us to utilize a speech input into the phone. If it shows promise, all we’d really need to achieve is a Holodeck and a warp drive engine. All geekiness aside, Microsoft is also in talks with various handset vendors working on a new touch screen interface and better browser rendering making the mobile web experience a lot more similar to a netbook or desktopPC, as well as being able to connect to Zune. It will be interesting to see the end results that this powerful OS will bring to smartphones.

    I totally agree.. it does always seem that the mobile industry is now struggling to come up with original and intuitive ideas without stepping on the back of Apple. Everything has to mimick the iphone interface with some added features which are an after thought if you ask me without much consideration for the end user.

    I always had a windows phone, loved it, but times have moved on and left the windows platform behind a long time ago. Most phones these days will store thousands of messages and much more. You should try out the iPhone i couldnt live without mine, nor can my girlfriend (even though she always used to say she could).

    Apple still stands top of the game.

    Windows sucks. Look at those images they remind me of my iphone images. Get original Gates and stop trying to configure everything after apple.

    I personally love Windows phones. My last one broke and I was heartbroken. I love the fact that you can store 1000’s of texts on a Windows phone. It also has excellent features on it. I love touch screen phones, they are a great design, makes me feel like an executive owning one.

    Windows mobile phone FTW! 🙂
