“Microsoft has informed some of its partners that it has had to delay Windows Mobile 7,” Ina Fried reports for CNET News.
“Although Microsoft has not publicly said when to expect Windows Mobile 7, partners who had expected to have a final release in their hands by early next year have been told now that it won’t be ready until the second half of next year, sources told ZDNet.com.au sister site CNET News,” Fried reports.
“The delay is a significant blow for the software maker, which has been counting on the next version of Windows Mobile to enable devices that better rival Apple’s iPhone,” Fried reports.
About “Windows Mobile 7, Microsoft has said very little publicly. Ballmer did make reference to it in a speech to enthusiasts in April,” Fried reports. “During the speech, he talked about how Windows Mobile would outsell Apple and RIM during 2008.”
