Bill Gates Pushing Microsoft On Mobile Devices

‘There’s a lot yet that hasn’t been done’ Says Bill Gates and continues to say, ‘We are looking at various ways to bring more to that space.’

While Bill Gates didn’t rule out the possibility of a portable media device (Also reported earlier on LucidLAN) but rumors and other executives at Microsoft have stated openly in recent weeks that a portable device is not currently on the list, Bill Gates’s words don’t give much weight to claims that the firm is about to enter this space with a device of its own.

Microsoft is putting herself in the portable space through a host of licensing agreements for portable versions of Windows on PDAs, smartphones and other such devices, as well as the recently launched Origami devices which are designed as extremely portable but fully functional Windows PCs.

In addition, the firm’s Windows Media Player software integrates with media players from a large number of third party companies.Although rumours of the firm’s imminent move into portable hardware have proved popular online, taken in light of the firm’s previous actions in the space, Bill Gate’s comments are more likely to imply that Microsoft is planning further software and partnership initiatives aimed at competing more effectively with products like the iPod and PSP.
