Motorola doesn’t believe in Windows Mobile 6.5, announces new Android software partners
Although Windows Mobile 6.5 is on everyone’s lips these days, not all big phone makers are interested in it. Take Motorola for example, which, according to PhoneScoop, will not launch WM 6.5 devices at all.
The reason for this is that Motorola is apparently waiting for Windows Mobile 7 before developing new phones based on Microsoft’s OS.
Needless to say, Motorola’s current platform of choice is Android – for which the company has just announced new third-party solutions.
Moto’s ecosystem partners that have developed solutions and applications for its Android handsets (like the Motorola Cliq / Dext) include: Amazon MP3, Accuweather, Barnes & Noble, Comcast Entertainment Group, CardStar, Hands On Mobile, Howcast.com, MySpace, Midomi, QuickOffice, QuickPlay Media, Superpages.com, RJDJ and Travel Channel.
“Working closely with these companies allows us to provide a compelling mobile Android-based experience that satisfies specific consumer needs,” declared Christy Wyatt, vice president, software applications and ecosystem, Motorola Mobile Devices.
