Despite the slew of companies that appeared to rush to embrace Windows CE, they may have only been hedging their bets. Psion's EPOC-32 OS is doing rather well in the telecomunications industry, and most of the consumer electronics companies still feel their own OS's are in the running. And don't forget Java... I wonder whether Microsoft will be able to play the various competitors off each other or whether the consumer electronics business will realise that they'll lose brand differentiation if they go along the CE path.
