The biggest problem the Win7 phone will have is that everyone, or most, are already using a Blackberry, Droid or iPhone and so far I haven't seen enough to get folks to change.
If they would focus on win7 as a replacement/killer for Blackberry that would be a good strategy as would developing a fricking smartphone that wouldn't cost you thousands in data fees when going overseas....
has ANYBODY who has seen the on-screen format “look and feel” think it is better than even windows 3.1? I don’t think so.
It looks like some preschool kid designed the User Interface.
I think the Windows Phone 7 will be surprisingly popular because unlike earlier Windows-based smartphones, Windows Phone 7 uses a completely new UI that is designed specifically for multitouch functionality (essentially an expanded version of the Zune HD interface) and uses program code that is completely brand new. If priced properly, these smartphones will likely be very popular indeed, especially since it was designed from the start to use cellphone technologies related to the GSM network, the most commonly used digital cellular standard in the world.
People get so bent out of shape about their phones! I could care less who made my phone or what system it uses as long as it does all the things I want it to do with the least amount of trouble!
