In all the wildness going on around the iPad which launches tomorrow, it would be foolish for any company to announce anything this week. Seems like Microsoft got the memo and decided to announce that they are dropping the “Series” from Windows Mobile 7 Series. Instead of putting out a press release, they decided to announce this by twitter.
It’s actually a good move by Microsoft to remove the Series title because the whole “Windows Mobile 7 Series” thing was a mouthful.
The announcement by Twitter was also smart because if it has been a press release, it would have been gobbled up by iPad mania.
