Another artfully crafted column to bash a great product.
Now, for the record I remember OS/2 and worked with it. OS/2 really retained it's IBM look and feel. But WIN 7 phone is good. I have an HTC phone running Win 7 phone. Fast, with a well designed interface. I paid 32 bucks for the phone. For my business that is a big plus it ran and auto configured a major Microsoft Cloud application as soon as I accessed the URL. Perfect. With mobile sales force resources consuming much of the IT budget these days, this phone will be a great help to users. Much can be done with one thumb.
I think your article quotes prove that many folks in their positions base their thoughts on hear say, and propaganda. What a way to make business decisions, right.
You should have explained in your article why those responses were bad choices, but that would not have been in line with your purpose.
Those of us in the Business area of the IT industry already know that many people are in the position of "decision maker" because they won a popularity contest.
It's time to get the 17 second thought process folks a good jolt of caffine and show them that Microsoft has the OS on all the devices but also has the apps that generate $$$ to run on all devices. Oh and I have to mention the truly 101, bush league response to a request for a Windows 7 phone I received at a Verizon store.
Verizon, please lose these folks. They make you look lame.
