Windows Mobile 6.5 Debuts

Microsoft came out with heads held high at the world's largest wireless conference with the announcement of some new products and services at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on Monday. Amongst the new stuff was the long awaited Windows Mobile 6.5.

Microsoft also announced deals with Orange, LG, and HTC, which will ship new phones that will use Windows Mobile 6.5 when it's available in the second half of this year.

Microsoft also announced a competitor to Apple's MobileMe service – called My Phone, as well as a application store that resembles Apples iTunes, and named it Microsoft Marketplace for Mobile.

The question is, can Microsoft compete with Apple on either service or application level for the mobile market, or is it too late?

Although Windows Mobile 6.5 will not change the earth, it will keep Windows mobile a viable product in the mobile market.

Microsoft is also offering a My Phone service similar to Apple's MobileMe. It will provide users with storage for information on their mobile devices, along with capabilities to manage and back up their personal data. The difference is while Apple will charge $99 per year, the Microsoft service is Free.

Are you using Microsoft Mobile? Are you going to upgrade? Do you think Microsoft has a chance to make it big in the Mobile market place.
