Motorola planning Windows Phone 7 mobile

Motorola Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Sanjay Jha has said that his firm will not be limiting its support to Android in future smartphone releases, suggesting potential support for Windows Phone 7 Series.

Mr Jha said that he recognised the need for "diversity in [Motorola's] portfolio" in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, in which he also hinted that Microsoft's upcoming mobile operating system would be given serious consideration.

In previous years Motorola has stood by Microsoft and its various versions of Windows Mobile, although with the emergence of Android the manufacturer looked to have jumped ship in favour of a more finger-friendly platform.

Windows Phone 7 Series is likely to overcome the past prejudices surrounding Windows Mobile 6.5 in an attempt to bring itself up to date and compete directly with Android, the iPhone OS and Research in Motion (RIM)'s BlackBerry platform.

Windows Phone 7 Series will support a high definition interface along with tabbed icons and easy to use menus to minimise the number of actions required to control its various features.
