    Windows could make a come back

    The windows desktop monopoly could make a comeback of sorts, but it won't be with this phone.

    What Microsoft would have to do, is somehow tie in Windows Desktop to the mobile experience, so the end user feels they have some kind of advantage...

    Like office for mobile, installed for free. Of course phones would have to have the resolution to make it practical....but users could say, hey in a pinch I can examine documents on the road from my phone, sent via email or some such.

    Even if in practice they didn't use that feature very doesn't matter there has to be some selling point for the phone.

    Right now, Microsoft has lost their mo-jo and the average user doesn't see any advantage to a WinMo phone, the way they once believed they had to have a WinMo handheld, or a Win Laptop, etc.
