The Windows Mobile 2005 operating system should be announced today during Bill Gates’ keynote speak at Mobile and Embedded DevCon 2005 in Las Vegas. Code named ‘Magneto’, it has already been hyped as the ‘Blackberry Killer’. Information is still sparse but a few tidbits have been leaked including that the system will operate one-handed without a touchscreen much like the Blackberry OS. Other information is that it will fully support and integrate with most of the Office products like Word, Excel, and Powerpoint.
Although we’re very skeptical with everything that is labelled a ‘killer’, especially when it comes to the Blackberry or iPod, but anything from Microsoft should be taken very seriously.
