Microsoft has shifted its strategy to bring computing and the internet to those in developing nations. It is ramping up the development of its Fone+ program, which aims to provide smartphones as computing platforms for the needy. Rather than supply them with low-cost computers, Microsoft believes the prevalence of mobile phones and wireless networks makes them more practical for third-world nations. Part of the Fone+ idea is to include a docking station that will allow users to connect the Windows Mobile-based smartphones to TVs for better viewing. Fone+ is in the earliest stages of development, and Microsoft did not provide any details and what actual devices will be created and when they will be available.
