Microsoft iPhone Rival Rumors Back On
Tuesday, April 28th, 2009 at 2:07 PM - by Jeff Gamet
The on-again-off-again rumors that Microsoft is planning on building its own iPhone rival are back on again, and this time include word that the Redmond-based company is already negotiating with Verizon for a 2010 launch. Microsoft's alleged iPhone competitor will apparently include multimedia features, a touch screen interface, and access to the company's online Windows Marketplace for Mobile, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Rumors that Microsoft was working on its own smartphone and multimedia player have been surfacing for some time now. The company has, however, led the public to believe that it isn't designing a smartphone.
Microsoft's rumored smartphone will apparently be a collaboration with partners that build phones based on the company's software and hardware specifications, similar to Google's business model for Android-based devices.
So far, Microsoft hasn't been able to dethrone Apple's iPod with its Zune media players, and the iPhone has been gaining ground on its Windows Mobile devices. Unless Microsoft can come up with something that out-iPhones the iPhone, it will likely suffer from more Zune-like success with its smartphone efforts.
