Software giant Microsoft continues to showcase new products, which they are hoping, would help them expand their market share in the various markets and expand revenue streams for them.

One of these new products is FonePlus, which the company is portraying as a low cost alternative operating system for mobile phone.

They displayed a prototype of the platform at their daylong Financial Analyst Meeting (FAM) in Redmond yesterday.

Craig Mundie, Microsoft’s chief research and strategy officer believes that this operating system powered mobile phones could become the first personal computers for people living in developing and poor nations.

This could also be used on devices, which plan to take on Nicolas Negroponte’s USD 100 PC in the market. This 100-dollar PC is using a customized version of Fedora Linux as its operating system.
