Microsoft to Launch Phones in France
Determined to break into the telecom market, Microsoft announced on Wednesday an agreement with France Telecom to develop products and services. Initially the two companies will work together on two projects, one for VoIP and the other a software project that would combine voice, video and data services. The VoIP project will involve the production of Microsoft-based phones that can act as a normal wireless phone when away from home. When the user returns home, the phone will switch to the user’s home Internet network using Wi-Fi to make calls.
