Today we have Greg Sullivan, Senior Product Manager for Windows Mobile In the last year there were 20 million sales Windows Mobile devices with 11 phones selling over 1 million each. So Microsoft realizes that one size doesn’t fit all people like choice.

Greg provided a detailed discussion of what was briefly presented at the Microsoft Pre-CES keynote from Steve Balmer.

NetFlix Mobile allows you to manage your NetFlix Queue and to search for movies for download on your PC and Xbox 360.

A nice easy to use User Interface.

You even get a small preview video that downloads for viewing to your phone so you can choose to download it or not.

He also covered Microsoft Tag which was introduced at CES as a new barcode for Microsoft products. in order to connect you with the physical world with the online world so special offers can easily be delivered with out repackaging a product and providing product information when some is walking by a product.

All it takes is a quick scan of the box.

So marketers can provide more updated product information directly to the consumer.

Today we saw a presentation from Windows Mobile giving a flavor of where we are and where we will be going.  Interesting discussions took place about the platform, carriers and the market as it is now and its future.


A platform update will be coming later this year that will provide the user with a significantly richer user experience.


Demonstrations coupled with exciting discussions made this presentation well worth attending.  CNTRSTG has provided a significantly different experience for bloggers attending CES this year.  Not only the opportunity to gather and discuss amongst ourselves current trends but to have the ability to interact with vendors, offer thoughts and experiences has provided a unique opportunity for communication and acquiring knowledge.
