""I don't envision us using Microsoft. I would never say never but it's not something we're entertaining now," said Christy Wyatt, corporate vice president of software and services product management for Motorola. She spoke to the press during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. "We're the only vendor who is 100 percent Android," she noted."
Citing limits on functionality and other issues like the fact Windows Phone 7 is not open source, Motorola's Christy Wyatt, Corporate Vice President of Software and Services Product Management for Motorola, contends they won't be releasing products on the platform any time soon. The door has not been closed completely (she comments "never say never"), but it is obvious that we won't be seeing a Motorola-based smartphone just around the corner. Motorola seems to have had a good experience to date with Android, although the upgrade process has kinks that they are continuing to work out. Personally, I like some of the new Motorola hardware quite a bit, and would love to see a Windows Phone 7 handset come to market.
