Today in Mobile

It’s a very slow day in the world of mobile news, but Microsoft is making headlines with news that has begun shipping “the most thoroughly tested mobile platform” ever released to device manufacturers. That’s a fairly bold statement, I suppose, and the early peeks of Windows Phone 7 have generated a lot of very positive buzz. I don’t doubt that Microsoft’s upcoming OS will be a solid one, but the company will need much more than that if it’s going to get back in the mobile game. Because like Palm can tell you, a great mobile OS simply isn’t enough.
