NEW YORK—Microsoft used an Open House event here on Oct. 6 to roll out a variety of new products for the fall and holiday season. Many of these carry quite a bit of business functionality, including its new Windows 7 operating system, Windows Mobile 6.5, Office Mobile, and new hardware including a variety of mouse models and video-conferencing cameras. Microsoft hopes that these new products will ignite a massive tech refresh among the enterprise and SMBs (small- to medium-sized businesses), many of which will likely be looking to upgrade their aging hardware and operating systems. Redmond also hopes that Windows Mobile 6.5 and Office Mobile will give it an advantage in the mobile-device ecosystem, currently dominated by other players such as Apple and RIM's BlackBerry line.
