Motorola helps Microsoft enter US smartphone market

FRAMINGHAM (10/23/2003) - AT&T Wireless Services Inc. this week began selling Motorola Inc.'s MPx200, the first smart phone based on Microsoft Corp. software to be sold in the U.S. The MPx200 is also the first Microsoft-based phone to be offered by a major handset maker, which analysts have said might help Microsoft establish its long-sought credibility in the mobile phone market.

Microsoft Corp.'s entry onto the U.S. market comes a year after it introduced the world's first Windows Powered Smartphone in the U.K., manufactured by Taiwan's High Tech Computer Corp. Since then, Microsoft Windows Mobile phones have been introduced in several European and Asian countries.
