On Monday morning, Pacific time, Steve Ballmer will speak at Mobile World Congress, and it looks like Microsoft will be bringing the goods, unveiling the next version of its Windows Mobile operating system, according to a report by Wall Street Journal “At a wireless industry conference in Barcelona on Monday, the company plans to publicly show a new version of its cellphone operating system, Windows Mobile 7, for the first time, according to people familiar with the matter. The operating system sports a revamped user interface that resembles the look of Microsoft's Zune HD music player, people who’ve seen it said.” Microsoft, which was early to market with its Windows Mobile OS, seeks to regain a technology edge in the market against rivals such as Apple's iPhone and, more recently, Google Android devices.
