    Who Will Microsoft Buy to Beat iPhone?
    By Cody Willard

    About this article:
    Several companies have already announced competitors to the iPhone. Microsoft has stated that a 'Zune phone' is definitely part of the brand's future. Perhaps a purchase of a company like Palm makes more sense for Mister Softee.

    I vote for Microsoft + Moto. Moto gets back to its roots and spins off the phone biz.

    They already purchase apple a couple of years back (to save the company) so no use in double-dipping there.... humm.... maybe palm, but why would they do that. Palm is a disaster.

    Microsoft could purchase htc... but why would they do that.... hmmm.... you know, it makes no sense that MS would purchase anyone to build a zune phone, when they already have a number of hardware makers using their software....

    Why, what would MS get out of Palm? A 5 year old design, a tired old OS. No I can't think of one assets MS would get from buying Palm. Oh wait, I can think of one, a headache.

    MS doesn't want to go into the hardware business if it doesn't have to, especially since they depend on 3rd party manufacturers to create phones. What they need is to invest in the UI, make it easy to use, make it pretty, make it useful, don't depend on companies like HTC and their own personal tweaks like the HTC Touch. Even if the Touch is successful, thats just one device, other companies might emulate, but that is wasted resources, if MS does it and they do it right, all WinMo phones will be the better for it.

    Incredible; Microsoft's purchase of Apple Inc. and the phone markets imitation and emulation of HTC's Touch!

    What would we do without these guys?
