Windows Mobile on Course to Outsell iPhone-Apparently

In a rather bold statement, Microsoft’s Devices Division president Robbie Bach claims that Windows Mobile devices are on course to outsell Apples, all conquering iPhone.

In a recent interview, Bach explained how he believed more phones equipped with Windows Mobile would sell that either iPhones or Blackberrys. This comes as Aple is expected to unveil a new iPhone with 3G capabilities at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference later today.

“We ship lots of 3G phones already on Windows Mobile and have for some time. So we continue driving the path we are driving with Windows Mobile and we are very excited about the approach we have taken this year,” said Bach.

“About 20 million devices will ship with Windows Mobile on it. We will outsell the iPhone. We will outsell the BlackBerry.”

The iPhoine has already been tipped to challenge the much loved, Nintendo DS as lead handheld gaming console. Microsoft hope to offer a challenge also with future plans including downloadable games from the xbox360 to Zune MP3 players.

Also in the interview, Bach denied claims that Microsoft were gearing up to introduce a Blu-ray player in the next generation of Xbox consoles.

“There is nothing to even talk about right now with regard to the next generation. That is so far out that there isn’t anything to talk about,” he said.

“You have to look at how fundamentally compelling the difference is between a progressive scan DVD player and the picture that it can produce and what you get on a high-definition player. The reality is there is some difference, but most people look at it and say, ‘I am not going to pay extra for that.’”
