China Mobile's Ophone gets updated, supports Windows Mobile API

This is incredibly odd. China Mobile's Ophone platform, which is based off Android, just received an update from 1.5 to 2.0. That's great because it gives Ophone users new features like voice recognition and SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) support. But that's not odd part. The odd part is that the update to the Ophone platform will also include support for Windows Mobile API. Android and Windows Mobile sitting in a tree?

We wish we could tell you what it all exactly means but we're just guessing that the Ophone platform will be able to run Windows Mobile apps in some way or fashion. If this all works out on the Ophone platform we wonder if it can trickle down to other Android-based platforms. We'll be sure to keep an eye on this. It's just too interesting not to.

  • The press release lists "WM APIs" as something they get from Android 2.0, along with SVG and voice rec, not something they're adding. So I'm guessing this refers to Exchange sync (ActiveSync?).
