Yeah, this is a pretty interesting situation. I'm not sure that Microsoft would really take this approach. I think the media is really jumping on the idea that Microsoft has to copy and mimic everything that Apple does. The iPhone has a long way to go before it's a competitor to any of the Windows Mobile devices. Plus, Microsoft is trying to converge all their phone devices into one platform. Why would they create another platform for this?
