Jeez. You mean Microsoft still builds a phone OS and manufacturers still install it?
Certainly you’d never know it given all the hype (and press) given over to ‘the others’…

Still – Microsoft and a phone OS? How very Palm…


20+ different handsets
60 carriers
30 countries

…zero apps.

not. good.


Correction 13 ( thirteen ) apps.
