Windows Mobile Not Selling Like Microsoft Wants – Apple Among Reasons

Oops. Microsoft had hoped to sell 20 million licenses of their Windows Mobile platform by the end of June, but fell nearly 2 million copies short. Some market analysts are blaming Apple and the 3G iPhone as of the reasons for the lower than expected figures. Also likely to play a hand are increasingly better BlackBerry handhelds and semi-smart phones like the Samsung Instinct.

To be fair, the Sony Experia X1 handset has been pushed back, hindering figures. The latest from Sony, offering Windows Mobile, is expected to sell like gangbusters. Microsoft will have even more on their plate later this year when Android makes its much anticipated debut.
