Windows Mobile: Greatest app story ever told


Windows Mobile is the Frankenstein's monster of mobile phone operating systems  -- hideously misshapen, yet powerfully intelligent, it spends its time outrunning the fiery torches of disgruntled users and mobile phone reviewers. It doesn't have the cachet of the iPhone, the ubiquity of Symbian or the geek chic of Android, and it's the calling card of suits who wear pleated trousers and mobile phone holsters -- it's so square it makes BlackBerrys look cool.

The problem with Windows Mobile is that it tries to bring the wonder of your Windows desktop -- your Windows 95 desktop, that is -- to the tiny screen of your phone. And if you think Windows is complicated and incomprehensible on your PC, try controlling it with a stylus the size of a matchstick.

But there is one advantage to WinMo's attempt to recreate your PC in your pocket -- it's the greatest mobile app platform on the planet. You thought Apple invented the app for a little baby called the iPhone? Forget it. Compared to the iPhone OS or even open-source Android, WinMo is the king, because it's dead easy to develop for, and you can stick almost any program on it.   (Source: Flora Graham, Crave)
