Phone recycling news: Windows Mobile 'has improved'

9 October 2009 — 10:18 AM

Windows announced new phones

The latest version of Windows Mobile shows improvement from the manufacturer, an expert has suggested.

People thinking about buying a handset with this software using phone recycling proceeds might be encouraged by the comments from Pete Cunningham, who is a senior analyst at Canalys.

He discussed Microsoft's latest attempt to provide a usable and innovative operating system, which was unveiled earlier this week.

But while it is certainly better than its predecessor, it is not the revolutionary step needed to compete with the likes of the Apple iPhone, Mr Cunningham added.

"Windows Mobile has improved, but it is more of an evolutionary step forward rather than a revolutionary step," he suggested.

The software now enables users to access an applications store and browse the internet on their phone with the touch of a finger.

Microsoft said the tool will be available globally on a variety of handsets at different prices.
