Microsoft Handset Problems Have Users Seeing...Orange
Posted: 17-Jan-2003 [Source: Dow Jones Newswire via Yahoo]

[Microsoft has plenty of problems to iron out with its Smartphone 2002 software according to this report.]

London by Nic Fildes, Dow Jones Newswires -- "Microsoft Corp.'s move into the mobile phone market has created a product with features few competitors can match."

"Here are some: a handset that keeps freezing up and may take three attempts to get it running again, can randomly ring numbers from the address book, and has a battery that can expire without notice."

"It's common for any new mobile phone to have teething problems, but the SPV, a phone using Microsoft's software and branded by operator Orange SA , is one of the most-scrutinized new mobiles on the market."

"... The complaints, which have risen as the phone has become more widely available in the past month, come on the back of the discovery of security cracks in the SPV's system. The problems threaten Orange's attempt to set up the phones to run only software approved by Orange, to combat viruses and ensure Orange can get a slice of software revenues."
