Is winmo dying?

It just seems as an OS, its gasping for air.

I mean, I've been winmo since wince. But android? It looks to me like winmo without the downside.

Am I wrong? Should I wait for 7?

I'm confused. I'm holding scissors...

M$ merged winmo into the Windows Embeded tree..and is going to Apple's market of making a locked down OS which is WP7...it is built from scratch and has nothing to do with Winmo other then the kernal..

Android is pretty much going into the market share that winmo had. And next year MeeGo will also try to compete in that market share.

Apparently, my feelings are well founded. Winphone 7 won't be the answer.

I feel like a cubs fan.

Who knows if WM will be around forever? Nobody. Go with what you want to go with.

Re: Is winmo dying?

Good article and unfortunately I think I am ready to concede that the WinMo arse has been thoroughly kicked. I'm looking at the Android phones now and I too started with WinCE in 1996.

Turn out he lights... the party's over....

That's true. MS Quit Windows Mobile (as mentioned earlier Windows Mobile 7 is not Windows Mobile). Just like Sony "quit" making PlayStation 3s better and better (instead, fewer and fewer features).

Anyway, Windows Mobile will soon give way to the poorest GUIs in history and massive amounts of Toilet Paper scrolling. For the last 6, maybe seven years, we have started moving completely backwards in the GUIs in these OSes - we started with having up to 20 buttons on a screen that you could comfortably poke with a stylus, even a fingernail, and now apple steered us into NO Scrollbars, NO more than two massive buttons at a time on a screen. If you look back at it, its really a laughable fail.

What will the future hold? Maybe this is just the tip of the iceberg. Ten years, we'll have all 5.5 inch screens that are still these ridiculous touchscreens, and there will be two buttons at a time, max. We'll be toilet paper scrolling all day long to get through to the bottom of a good read in a thread say here at the PPCGeeks community forums, which is embarrassing, considering in the year 2006 or 2007 this task would have taken about one second because of those handy Windows Mobile scrollbars.

It stays alive as long as you want to keep it alive before taking the fail train even further.

WM7 is NOT WM. They just got bored of making a decent amount of money from one audience, so they dumped it out and quit, and want to start requesting a new audience of powerful hardware, useless software dumbphone users.
