    feel sorry for them? Microsoft has a monopoly for everything, except for phones maybe.

    I was recently talking to a WM developer and apparently he had some more details about the MS multi touch technology.
    I'm pretty sure that WM7 in conjunction with an appropriate hardware setup could be a very impressive combo. I doubt however that it is going to kick Apple's iPhone ass, simply because the second generation iPhone is going to be a huge improvement over the current generation and I'm not talking about the minor 16 GB Flash Disk upgrade early next year.

    The iPhone currently has one major flaw and it is NOT the lack of 3G but the lack of officially supported 3rd party apps. The 3rd party apps available right now are really impressive but where is a decent .pdf, Office, Blackberry support? It simply doesn't exist. The MS Exchange support is half-baked too, so is the PIM functionality of the iPhone. Also very strange: Apple didn't give the iPhone ONE SINGLE game out of the box, even the cheapest cell phones have a game or two available.

    If Apple plays their cards right, the second generation iPhone expected next summer will not only offer 3G, improved touch technology (with tactile feedback?), a decent 3-5 MP camera with flash and video capability, A2DP profile and some other goodies but also a huge collection of 3rd party and Apple software to choose from.

    I can see the following scenario: I could imagine that Microsoft buys HTC. I could also imagine that new battery and chip setups will make substantial power savings possible, allowing Microsoft (but also Apple) to use more powerful processors and more energy eating memory without compromising operation time too much.

    That said, I think we never should underestimate Microsoft but we also shouldn't forget that the iPhone wheels are moving, not staying still and iPhone developers aren't sleeping.

    The second generation iPhone will be THE decisive turning point in the iPhone's future. IF Apple does everything right (as expected by customers and experts), the iPhone will continue to be a huge success. If Apple screws up and offers us the same iPhone like it is now, just adding 3G and maybe more room for media files, the iPhone will not make it for very long.

    Heh. This is typical MS FUD, a tactic they've literally been using since the company was formed. No joke, read up on some of the stuff they did to get IBM to license their DOS.

    Typical - yeah, wait a few years and check out what the version we'll have Real Soon Now(tm) will do - it'll be loads better than the current generation of our competition. This is basically so the no-talent MIStards can feel good about sticking with MS in their corporate shops even though some other product is currently kicking MS's ass.

    But there's a few things that make this tactic unlikely to work this time. For one, phones are a totally different market than desktop computers. The investment is much smaller and it's much more of an individual vs. corporate decision. Also, Windows-based phones are teh suck. There are a huge number of apps for them, 99.5% of which utterly suck. Either they crash or they have some weird hallucinogenic idea of what a good interface is. Further - the thing about the iPhone is that it just works (for the most part - there are some minor probs, but the iPhone recovers from them pretty gracefully). No windows phone I've seen can remotely claim the same, and anyone who's not making money by sucking at the MS teat will say the same. It's not a subjective thing - it's plainly obvious.

    The advantages that Windows phones have over the iPhone are in enterprise tools. Secure email, VPNs, Remote Desktop, and working with MS apps. However, 2 things negate the importance of this: 1) Apple's not really interested in the enterprise market, and they've made this clear. Even so, some enterprise users hate their current phones so much they're trying to shoehorn the iPhone into their businesses. This desire is customer-driven - Apple has no interest in it because then they'd be beholden to the aforementioned MIStards, and they clearly have a *much* better idea of what sells than these clowns. 2) MS Office is dying, and soon anything of importance will be unshackled from its proprietary format and be stored in open formats. Upshot - use Excel to create these files if you want, but you can also use Google Docs on the web, or some other non-MS tool.

    Just my take on why trying to run Windows on an iPhone is a fool's errand.

    So.. how come I run Mac OS 9 on my AMD64 PC? Well.. not natively, but there is also something called "porting" -how come early OS X applications designed for PPC can work on Intel?

    Porting means re-compiling the code for a different platform. Unless you go and steal the Windows Mobile source code from Microsoft, you obviously can't port the WM operating system to the iPhone hardware.

    And the anwer your question: you can run them because typical applications would still run on 300 Mhz machines, and if you've suddenly got 3 GHz, emulating a different CPU type isn't such a huge problem any more.
