More on T-Mobile and MS Smartphone
Posted on 20-May-2003 17:42 | Tags Filed under: News



It was reported before that German T-Mobile would not release MS Smartphone devices, but later news of "delayed" release were spread.

Mike King, principal analyst with Gartner Inc., said he and other analysts testing trial versions of handsets running on Microsoft's Smartphone software found that the programs kept freezing.

''We're all used to seeing the blue screen of death on our PC,'' he said. ''We're not used to seeing it on our handsets.''

But Microsoft said its software isn't the problem: ''The readiness of the software is not the issue,'' said Derek Brown, Microsoft's marketing director for its mobility division. Rather, the problem is ''the readiness of the entire experience.''

Delaying the phone is not ''entirely unexpected,'' he added. ''Sometimes it takes a little longer than you thought. ... This is a brand new market and it takes time and it takes patience and you have to have a long view of what that means and make the investments and take the time and have the patience.''.
