Microsoft struggles for foothold in wireless market
Posted: 08-Apr-2000 [Source: CNN]

[Bill Gates has too many irons in the fire to take the leading role in wireless software according to this report.]

By Correspondent Rick Lockridge, Los Angeles -- "Microsoft founder and chief software architect Bill Gates, having captured the desktop world, has set his sights on the wireless devices and so-called "Internet appliances" that he believes will dominate the future.

"Between the better phone, small screen devices, better PC and the wireless environment, it's a whole new world of communications," Gates said at this year's Windows World conference.

"Gates says he's now putting all his energy into designing new software for the post-desktop era to give increasingly mobile Internet users a common platform and a single standard.

"This should sound familiar to Windows users. But there is some doubt that Gates and company can set a worldwide standard all over again.
