Looks like Microsoft can boast a little about its new mobile operating system after all. Recently, at the Evolve conference in London, Microsoft Games Studios' Kieron Connell had some interesting fighting words regarding Microsoft, Apple and the mobile phone market:

I think there are too many people with too much money invested to let Apple win in terms of flooding the entire market

You'd better believe Microsoft is very serious about Windows Phone 7, and protecting their part of the business. It's going to be an interesting time - that's for sure.

It's been repeated quite a few times before but no matter what the numbers say, Microsoft is certainly in this for the long haul and they won't go down easy. And we know from their Xbox past, they can be very stubborn when they want a market.
