InfoWorld's Oliver Rist (no relation to Charles Dicken's character) thinks that Microsoft needs to scramble its developers to fix and improve Windows Mobile before Apple eats their lunch.

Windows Mobile may have all the paper advantages — openness, Microsoft app compatibility, a great price, and loads of third-party support — but if users can't rely on it out there in the wild, woolly, and unsupported field, none of that means very much.

The article has more of a pro-Microsoft slant, designed to illustrate what Micorosft needs to fix with its mobile platform in order to slam the door in Apple's face. Still worth a morning read.
