On 16th October, 2008, Fonearena was represented by Ritu at the ITC Grand Central, Mumbai where a demo of the Windows Mobile 6.1 on the Samsung Omnia was given to three mobile phone enthusiasts (Ankit Saxena and Rupesh from the WATblog were co-invitees).

Microsoft was represented by Sumeet Gugnani, Director – Mobile Communications Business, who also enlightened the bloggers on the rise of MS in the world of mobile phones.

“We have a 33% share in the market of hi-end convergence devices (devices that are not only business phones, but also pack in multimedia features, a good camera and a simple UI)” revealed Sumeet.

According to him Microsoft moved up sales from 1 lac per annum about a year ago, to 1 lac in the last quarter alone. That’s a stupendous growth by any standards!

He also took us through the value propositions of the MS package vis-à-vis others.

The companies offering Windows Mobile range from HTC, ASUS, Motorola, Samsung, LG, Sony Ericsson, iMate, Palm etc
