Who needs Android when we’ve got Windows Mobile 7? Eventually.

Timing couldn’t be worse for Microsoft as the tech world is sitting on the edge of their collective seats to hear all about the first Google powered phone, the T-Mobile G1.  With so much attention focused on new phone technology the word that Microsoft is telling partners that the next version of Windows Mobile, WM7, will be delayed until late next year couldn’t be more ill-timed.  Windows Mobile 7 has long been expected to help put the Microsoft OS firmly head to head with the iPhone which will now have a pretty big head start on it.  Throw the first Google Android phone in the mix and it gets interesting.
