    Microsoft's Mobile Software Gets HTC, ZTE Lift

    SHENZHEN/PARIS (Reuters) - Microsoft's new Windows Phone platform won instant support from major manufacturers on Wednesday when China's ZTE and Taiwan's HTC Corp pledged to launch smartphones running the software.

    The software giant had stepped up its push into the cellphone market a day earlier with the launch of the new Windows Phone software, code-named Mango. It hopes a host of new features will help it close the gap on smartphone leaders Google Inc and Apple Inc.

    Microsoft has struggled for years to gain support from mobile phone manufacturers. All vendors in total sold just 1.6 million Windows Phones last quarter, giving it a market share of below 2 percent. Google and Apple together control more than 50 percent of the smartphone market.

    It is healthy for the Market to see HTC, LG, Samsung, and Dell supporting WM7 with new phones. Here are the seven WM7 models out now:
    Compare Windows 7 Phones | Windows Mobile Phones | Windows Phone 7

    Microsoft probably needs at least a dozen new models a year to be able to sustain a healthy ecosystem so these new phones are important.

    Hi, I agree with you.

    I'm glad to see MS have a platform, HP, Apple & Android...it is the competiveness of the industry that challenges them to make innovative breakthroughs.

    Take care,
