Microsoft is planning to unveil range of Windows phone7 mobile on 11 October 2010. Windows 7 mobile has become talk of the town and many iPhone users do not believe that Windows 7 mobile will affect market of iPhones, they are more worried about the Google Android. Rather iPhone fans are rooting in favor of Windows mobile 7. We have been tracking the health apps being developed for the smart phones and one obvious question comes to mind is, whether Windows mobile gain attention of healthcare industry?
Our quest took us to Microsoft website by a simple Google search and the website revealed that Windows Optimized Client Devices can help health organizations achieve the right balance in their client device infrastructure by providing:
- a seamless and mobile remote experience,
- simplified application management,
- effective management of physical and virtual assets
- support for users-all while lowering information and communications technology (ICT) costs.
One thing you would agree that Windows 7 mobile is entering very late into the market considering the success...
of iPhone and Android. Windows 7 has a much stronger base in the realm of software industry with many applications in healthcare industry such as Microsoft Patient Experience Platform (MPEP), Microsoft Patient Safety tools, and many more. The question remains that will Windows 7 mobile make impact in medical community, especially if iPhone, Android or Blackberry has strong presence. I would like to know, what do the smart phone users think about it. Look forward for more competition in mHealth space by introduction of Windows 7 mobile phones and your reviews.
