Microsoft and Google teams with MediaTek

The chipset and other hardware for Microsoft's Windows Mobile 6 OS has already been developed by MediaTek. The MediaTek hardware along with the Windows Mobile software has already been sent to handset makers in China, in order to start designing the new Windows Mobile smartphones. Similar hardware and software for Google's Android mobile phone OS will be released in the last half of this year.

The deals will give Microsoft and Google access to hundreds of small mobile phone makers in China that sell inexpensive smartphones at home as well as abroad in India and other emerging markets.
