The story goes like this: A Microsoft smartphone strategist said the iPhone will be “irrelevant” to business users because there’s no support for Office and it’s a closed device. Chris Sorenson, who heads Microsoft’s Asia-Pacific smartphone strategy, said business users would be better sticking with Windows Mobile 6-based smartphones because they were developed with business users in mind. OK, that may be true, but does anyone remember Apple claiming that the iPhone would be aimed at business users? Neither do I.
This sure does say something about Microsoft, hating on a product that’s not even out yet. I’m sure they’re not dreading the end of June at all. No sir.
