Windows Phone 7

Can carrier billing save Android Market?

Google’s Android operating system may be a prominent fixture in the mobile world, but when looking at the app economy within it, Android is having a hard time competing with Apple and iOS.

One big reason: Android Market, Google’s online marketplace for Android applications.

Will Microsoft’s cash make it competitive in mobile? Probably not

Can Microsoft still compete in the mobile arena? Windows Phone 7 might
be the company’s last chance, as it’s unlikely that Microsoft will ever
be able to catch up to Apple’s iPhone and Google’s Android if it
doesn’t make a big splash now.

But if one report is accurate, Microsoft thinks it has what it takes to compete: a really big bank account.
