Microsoft is developing the rival of iPhone

The new phone is being developed in partnership with Verizon. The launch is planned for 2010. The struggle between Titans are about to begin. The real rival of the iPhone, should arrive as early as next year by the hands of Microsoft. The new equipment should have touch screen and include the Zune. Despite wanting to enter this market segment, Microsoft has already said he is not interested in making their own phone but provide various products with their applications. According to the Wall Street Journal, the project is being led by the Steve Ballmer, Microsoft's director.

With the launch, Microsoft hopes to consolidate the market share of Windows Mobile operating system which is now a large part of mobile phones and give a credible response to customers who migrated to the iPhone. In addition, the company led by Steve Ballmer also aims to boost the sales of newly launched store applications, the Windows Marketplace for Mobile. But Microsoft is not alone in this project. According to the newspaper "The Wall Street Journal" Microsoft is in negotiations with the largest telecommunications operator in the United States, Verizon Wireless. From this partnership will emerge a multimedia phone that includes a music player, Zune.

The iPhone is an internet-connected multimedia smartphone designed and marketed by Apple Inc. with a flush multi-touch screen and a minimal hardware interface. Apple announced the first iPhone on January of 2007. The announcement was preceded by rumors and speculation that circulated for several months. The iPhone was initially introduced in the United States on June 29, 2007, and has since been introduced worldwide. It was named Time magazine's "Invention of the Year" in 2007. Now, it looks like something revolutionary is also being developed by Microsoft. I am anxious to know what the final product will be.
