Good Idea

I am a windows mobile fan, but I think this idea makes a lot of sense, but I think what Microsoft should also try to do is force all of their phones to be consistently updated, instead of relying on the operator. Both the g1 and the iphone receive updates normally, but for us windows mobile users, it's a hit or miss, and usually even if we receive an update, it takes a long time.

correct they would make way more money as a company in ever aspect of biz it would cut down on production and enable them to make more solid phones by applying more updates

Well said! I too am a huge Wmo fan and I think this is a great move on their part.

Im a Blackberry fan myself BUT I do like WinMo in certain phone models (Like the Diamond, Tilt, Touch Pro, Moto Q ect...) I think this will allow the development of WinMo phones to reach a much better level. IMO

I think so too! WinMo sometimes gets a bad rap but I find it soooo much easier to navigate now with the integration of touchscreen. I think the biggest cripple of WinMo is when phones like the motoQ made navigation slow and painstakingly tough. I absolutely love it on my Mogul. There is not much I can not do. This move on their part will allow more concentration on what to do with the OS and the improvements rather than what devices it is going to put it on.

Agreed! Any idea on when WinMo 7 is coming out? I'm really interested in seeing what it looks like in its "raw" form and what the different manufacturers do with it (especially HTC with their Touch Flo 3D).
