Get the code out of the door quickly…

I’ve said it before but it’s worth repeating.

Microsoft has one major issue; and only one. The speed that they can get code and functionality out of the door. There seems to be some serious process issues when competitors are realeasing functions at twice the speed of the market leader.

“Microsoft is apparently going to counter the Android and iPhone offensives on the mobile market with a new strategy: confusion. The company will allegedly continue to sell its increasingly less relevant Windows Mobile 6.5 for a lower price when it launches version 7 in the fourth quarter of 2010.

The fourth quarter of 2010? I mean, does Redmond expect Google and Apple to go on a yearlong vacation? No wonder Microsoft is becoming irrelevant on the mobile platform. As I have pointed out in the past,Android is going to kill Windows Mobile.”
