Jeff Smith Senior Product Manager reveals a little more
as I supposed Microsoft’s new SIP PBX killer is XP embedded under the lid, I missed this item first time round but in an interview with windowsfordevices.com Jeff Smith is quoted as saying that Response Point is :
a “go-to-market” software stack based on Windows XP Embedded, similar to how Windows Mobile is a go-to-market variant of Windows CE. And, like Windows Mobile, Response Point will only be marketed directly to major device OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) and ODMs (original design manufacturers).
he is quoted as going on to say
Microsoft played a role in developing reference architecture, but is not controlling the hardware design. Each OEM is building its own variation based on the Response Point reference design, explained Smith. Response Point is currently beta testing and available on a very limited basis. Beta 2 is now working, and should be released in early April.
oh well definitely no software only option then and I won’t be holding my breath to see a version in the wild in the UK for a while… ho hum.
wonder what the UM Team’s thoughts on RP are?
