What NO Windows OS for Smartphones?

Re: What NO Windows OS for Smartphones?

Microsoft's strategy is in a word puzzling. What's also strange is the CDMA market is WIDE open and yet none of the other OEM's are offering squat. Guess we've been forgotten.

The OEMS like HTC and Samsung cannot offer any devices until Microsoft gets Qualcomm CDMA certification for Windows 10 for Mobile via the Global Certification Forum (which has been handling both GSM and Qualcomm CDMA certifications since January of last year). This process is a requirement for companies who develop mobile operating systems (Apple, Google, and Blackberry are compliant with their respective mobile operating platforms, and Microsoft is usually very late to the Qualcomm CDMA certification dance).

Worst part of this is the fact Team Windows Phone does NOT have a single Qualcomm Certified CDMA coder, but if you want China Mobile CDMA they will give you that broken code in a flash (if the FCC allowed that broken code at all).

wonder if they are viewing it as a GSM world now or if maybe there are more sales on the GSM side so why bother with the CDMA side of things?

That's what it seems like but since 2 of the 4 carriers in the US are CDMA it seems crazy to just leave that cash on the table. Especially since they don't have much market share to begin with.

Re: What NO Windows OS for Smartphones?

Pretty sure your gonna need Samsung's help with this as well and I doubt they are going to bother since the phone is 3 years old. No to mention the fact that Windows 10 Mobile isn't certified for CDMA as MathiuzfromUSN has explained.
