NEW YORK (AP) - With all the grumbling over Windows and its many shortcomings, why would anyone want Microsoft's computer operating system to run their cell phone?
The answer, for better or worse, is the sheer familiarity of Windows. That may mean precious little when it comes to operating your basic cell phone. But it gains significance if you want to harness the wide array of features that are being added to even the most entry-level handsets. While there are some familiar flaws to the cellular version of Windows - the occasional frozen screen and reboot - the initial trickle of phones running on Windows Mobile has produced some sharp designs. Too bad they've all been too pricey for the average consumer, and too big for the average pocket. The new Audiovox SMT 5600 Smartphone is different.
The only easy day was yesterday.
