Windows Since MIX10 is still under way, we're going to have quite a few Microsoft items this week, with Windows Phone 7 Series and Internet Explorer 9 being the main points of focus. We've been speculating a while now about if and how Microsoft would support multitasking on their upcoming mobile operating system reboot, and now we finally have answers: no, it won't do multitasking - at least, not right away.

Which has all lead to the catastrophic market failure that iPhone was. Wonder why Microsoft is taking the same road to inevitable doom.

Ah, but they've missed one key detail. Judging by the iPhone's success, the WM7 phones will have no hope unless their contact & calendar management is completely piss-poor.

Though I shouldn't single out the iPhone exclusively, that seems to be the case for most of the current crop of smart phones: they're great as portable web browsing/media playback devices, decent as phones, and fairly mediocre as PDAs/PIMs.
