With Apple in control of the mobile phone market with their iPhone and Google deploying their Android system, Microsoft has been preparing software of their own. The new software known as Mobile Windows 6.5 had been preinstalled on a test phone. But unfortunately the phone was stolen. Or was it?
Microsoft is a master at providing us with ‘hype’ and FUD. Could this be one of their ploys?
In a recent article it states that:
The company unveiled plans this week to challenge the dominance of Apple’s hugely successful iPhone with a new mobile operating system to be offered on the market by the end of the year.
But within hours of announcing the launch of Windows Mobile 6.5 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, a phone fitted with the new generation software was stolen from an executive’s pocket.
The theft will no doubt embarrass Australian telecommunications giant, Telstar, whose CEO Sol Trujillo was reportedly given the device by Microsoft to test the system ahead of the launch.
He in turn handed the top secret product to an unnamed executive who was pick-pocketed during an evening function at the trade convention.
A spokesman for the Australian company confirmed the theft had happened. “One of our product executives was given the phone to test the system. He had it with him at an organised evening event and it was stolen from him – we don’t know by whom.”
One can only wonder if the phone was really stolen. I would imagine some will wonder if the phone even exists. LOL
