One is in challenge to other. It is direct battle of Apps in between Window Mobile and iPhone. While Window Mobile has unveiled new mobile phone operating system, iPhone has launched 3G version to challenge the other smartphones. The fight of apps is on since Microsoft has geared up for the fight against iPhone.
After four-years of their promise to launch OS version of 7, Microsoft is set to completely rule the LIVEs of their customers when their new smartphone finally hits the market. Since the launch of Window Mobile OS 6.5 & 7, it focuses as much on personal media functions as on business ones.

These major puts by Microsoft Window Mobile can definitely get into the mobile market. But the real question is whether or not Window Mobile will put a dent in Apple’s iPhone. Let’s wait till it happens.
