تلهث مايكروسوفت خلف كبرى شركات صناعة الهواتف الجوالة من أجل لحاق ركب التصميم الجديد للهاتف الجوّال الذي سوف يعتمد على معالج ذكي مركزي وحيد ليقوم بكافة والأعمال والخدمات التي تعتمد بها الهواتف الجوّالة الآن على مجموعة متنوعة من المعالجات والدوائر الالكترونية المدمجة


أما شركات خدمات الهاتف الجوّال عبر العالم فإنها بدورها تقدم لمايكروسوفت تحدياً جديداً هو خدمات الدردشة والشات الموجودة على الإنترنت ذاتها ولكن هذه الآن سوف تكون بإستخدام الهاتف الجوال بدلاً من الحاسوب


فيما يلي بعض الوصلات والروابط التي تشير إلى آخر الأخبار في مؤتمر الجيل الثالث للهواتف الجوّالة الذي ينعقد حالياً في برشلونة ويزخر بأخبار آخر ما امتلكته الصناعة من التقنيات الحديثة و المتطورة



Mobile telcos to link IM networks: "3GSM It's good to chat"


Microsoft 'year away' from single-core phone OS Costly catch-up

3GSM With Nokia and Sony Ericsson about to launch single-core, single-chip phones using a real-time OS, Microsoft embarked on its catch-up strategy today.

It's a pressing issue for manufacturers, as a single core smartphone platform allows the OEM to cut the cost of materials considerably, or cram more features on for the same BoM cost, or both. But a single core smartphone only works with a Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) that's capable of running the CDMA or GSM signalling stacks, and that's something Microsoft doesn't have. Microsoft's phones need a baseband processor running the GSM stack, and a separate application processor core running Windows Mobile OS.

Pieter Knook, senior Veep of Microsoft Mobile and Embedded, said Microsoft was teaming up with Texas Instruments to create a 'reference design' for single chip, single core phones. Three OEMs, including HTC and Sagem would bring these devices to market.

Knook said Sagem claimed a single chip phone would result in "double digit" reduction in BoM costs.

The announcement of a 'reference platform' is a sure sign that real product isn't exactly immiment - so we asked Knook when he expected Microsoft to have a RTOS-hardened version of Windows Mobile capable of running those signalling stacks.

Knook told us it might be about 12 months away.

Which, even with the wind in a favourable direction, means product might be 12 to 18 months away.

Remember, Symbian began to tout its real-time version of the Symbian OS more than two years ago - with the announcement exactly two years ago at 3GSM in Cannes in 2004. It's only now that Nokia's N series, E series and Sony Ericsson's P990 are set to ship. So 12 months certainly sounds optimistic.

As we've noted before, Microsoft ® Windows Mobile kit is now available in abundance, but it isn't exactly cheap. And the price differential set against more technically advanced rivals looks set to punish Microsoft OEMs for some time.
