Android spreads while Windows Mobile dwindles
For quite some time in the past Windows Mobile dominated the mobile phone arena, and then along came the iPhone and took hold of the crown, dominating the mobile world and Windows Mobile has fallen behind according to an article on nytimes.
Now, Windows Mobile faces even stiffer competition along with the iPhone as more and more mobile phone manufacturers adopt Google’s Android operating system. Traditional Windows Mobile users such as Samsung, Sony Ericsson and LG are all pushing out Android based handsets.
Motorola has said goodbye to Windows Mobile in favour of Android, HTC is expected to push out a dozen Android handsets this year and even Dell chose Android for its mobile phone debut. All four major US wireless carriers have agreed to carry Android handsets, even iPhone supplier AT&T has said they will join Android next year.
