Windows Phone 7 Does Not Work!
Yep you’ve heard it right, after being reviewed in detail for the first time by InfoTech, they have found a major flaw in the windows phone design. To put it plainly it doesn’t work properly. So, it’s a contact centric OS, the first of its kind. So what’s wrong with it? It cannot handle the maount of contancts that people have nowadays. Most of us follow 20+ people on Twitter, are friends with upto 300 people on Facebook, and have hundreds of other work contacts. Well becasue of Microsoft’s approach all of this is meant to make up your home screen! So how do you fit 400+ contacts on your home page. Well, to put it simply, they can’t.
“But that was just the lipstick. Now, in Microsoft’s in-depth demo this week at the Mobile Beat conference, there’s no mistaking the big pig behind the gloss. Seeing the UI in action across several tasks, not just in a highly controlled presentation, shows how awkward and unsophisticated it is — I had the same feeling you get when you got a movie based on a great trailer, only to discover that all the good stuff was in the trailer and the rest of the movie was a mess. A pig, in fact.”
“The bottom line is this: Windows Phone 7 is a pale imitation of the 2007-era iPhone. It’s as if Microsoft decided in summer 2007 to copy the iPhone and has shut its developers in a bunker ever since, so they don’t realize that several years have passed, that the iPhone has advanced, and that competitors such as Google Android and Palm WebOS have also pushed the needle forward. Microsoft is stuck in 2007, with a smart-phone OS whose feature checklist might match that era’s iPhone but whose fit and finish would look like a Punto next to a Maserati.”
So what else is bad about Windows Phone 7? Due to these major criticisms, Microsoft are struggling to find developers. In fact, they are having to give WP7 phones away to entice developers and that isn’t working. If MS don’t fix this soon. WP7 will be their biggest flop since Windows ME.
