New EU Antitrust Case Against Microsoft Focused On Mobile Phone Market?
It seems that antitrust officials in Europe are being urged to file another case against Microsoft, this time focusing on their moves in the mobile phone market. This seems a little premature, especially considering how Sendo just dropped Microsoft’s phone software for Nokia’s platform. So far, Microsoft hasn’t had much success in having their SmartPhone technology take off – which makes it tougher to prove any sort of antitrust violation. Of course, Microsoft is known for coming back from slow starts aggressively, and have a history of using questionable tactics to jumpstart a market – so, perhaps, this is just a pre-emptive move.
