Motorola giving Windows Mobile the cold digital shoulder



Motorola hasn’t exactly been pulling in the big dough lately.  The handset division has been in a rut with razr knockoffs that can’t seem to break away from the once iconic design.  In order to turn around the handset division and get back into the black ink, Motorola announced that they will be spending more time and money developing for Android as it offers more than the current version of Windows Mobile.  +1 for Android.  Not so good for WinMo.  Besides being alot more customizable than WinMo, Android looks leaps and bounds better than the 2001 looking WinMo 6.1.  Heck even 6.5 looks old.  I’m sure WinMo lovers will disagree but that’s ok.  Freedom of opinion is ok.  Motorola is quoted as saying that once WinMo 7 rolls around they will revisit the issue.  I am particularly hopeful for Android this year.  With more carriers and manufacturers coming on board Android is starting to become a bigger market force.  What’s your take?  Is Android the open haven you’ve always dreamed of.  Or, do you think it is an aimless lost cause?  Shout out below.
