There’s been a bit of trouble for Microsoft at the World Mobile Congress in Barcelona. It seems like Telstra CEO Sol Trujillo (right) was a bit careless as he roamed around Barcelona last night and managed to lose his prototype HTC Touch with the yet-to-be-released Windows Mobile 6.5 running on it.
Luckily, this happened after OnSoftware had already taken a sneaky peak at the device and grab a video of the new operating system in action. Coincidentally, we were also in the same room as Sol Trujillo yesterday, when he delivered his keynote address at the conference. I know it might seem like the evidence is stacking up against us but I can assure you that it’s purely circumstantial and we can confirm we went nowhere near Sol’s pocket at any point during the day.
Besides, Microsoft Steve Ballmer had said earlier this week that because the new Windows Mobile service backs up all your personal data “it doesn’t matter if it gets stolen”. So what’s all the fuss about then?
