RIM Shot: Microsoft Goes Enterprise with Windows Mobile 6.0

From Vienna to another great European city, Barcelona: Microsoft announced this week the latest version of Windows for mobile devices and crowed about having lots of industry support for it.

More interestingly, at least one analyst sees Microsoft as moving in on Research in Motion's Blackberry territory more than ever, targeting the mobile professional with this release. Only one problem with the article linked in the story above, and this is it:

"Indeed, Mr. Knook made Microsoft out to be a turnaround story, comparing it to the British rugby team which, although once beaten by rival team Scotland, earlier this year trounced its rival."

No, no, no. It was England (strictly speaking a "British rugby team," but that tag wouldn't be too popular in Scotland or Wales) that lost to Scotland last year in the 6 Nations rugby tournament (defending champion: France, sans doute) but came back to beat the Scots this year. Honestly, this stuff is too important to leave to non-rugby fans.

Do you work with Windows Mobile technology? Where do you see the 6.0 release taking the OS? Have a prediction for the rugby? Send me everything at lpender@rcpmag.com.
