Prada Phone Windows Mobile

LG's recently released Prada phone is set to use Windows Mobile, according to a claim made by BusinessWeek. While the touchscreen device officially runs a lightweight version of Adobe's Flash for its interface, the weekly publication said that LG will officially announce at 3GSM that at least two new smartphones will become its first devices to use the Microsoft OS, most likely involving the newly uncovered Windows Mobile 6. The team-up will "enhance LG's stance in the growing smartphone market," according to company VP Woo-young Kwak.

Choosing the phone edition of Windows gives Microsoft a slight edge over rivals in the phone business, as three out of the top five cellphone makers (Motorola, Samsung, and now LG) use the OS for some of their devices instead of RIM's BlackBerry or the open-source Symbian. It also creates a unique opposition in the near future, with the two most distinctive touchscreen devices -- LG's Prada and Apple's iPhone -- continuing the rivalry between Mac OS X and Windows in the mobile realm.
