There has been some more news on that front.<br /><br />"Microsoft Corp's mobile strategy continues to gather pace with the announcement that the company has agreed to supply the leading Chinese domestic mobile handset manufacturer TCL Mobile, with both its Pocket PC 2002 Phone Edition and Smartphone 2002 operating systems. TCL Mobile will manufacture devices based on Microsoft's mobile operating systems, but is likely to initially concentrate on the Pocket PC Phone Edition, which has so far been used by third parties to build two-handed combination PDA and Smartphones. TCL expects to commercially launch a handheld using Pocket PC Phone Edition in the fourth quarter of 2002, and a Smartphone in the second quarter of 2003."

And this is only the beginning. Theyre just getting started, but I really believe MS will make a killing in this industry.
