PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Sometime ago I conjectured that Microsoft made certain changes to IE8 to force web standards forward and drop backwards compatibility as default (a very un-Microsoft move) because of the need for the web to break out of the blinkered IE6 / Desktop-Browser view of content otherwise Microsoft would find itself unable to compete in the mobile space. It's been over a year since that article and in such a short period of time it has become ever clearer that Microsoft's mobile offerings, and their overall mobile platform strategy are failing against the dominant iPhone, the newcomer Android, and a re-invigorated Palm with WebOS.

it hasn't changed. Go ahead and name SOMETHING earth shatteringly different from 1.0 to 6.0?

Go on, search your phone.

Oh crap you can't actually search on the phone.

exctract the cabs on the phone? well gee that sounds terribly easy, esp when there is no 'setup.exe' just some demand you dock.

Windows CE is a DUD. It hasn't had a fundamental change ever.

Calling Windows CE usable in this day & age, next to any 'modern' phone OS is retarded.
