I gave up waiting for the new Windows Mobile operating system back in January after using windows mobile phones for years. Having turned down the standard issue Iphone from work I bought myself the Nexus One.
Ironically one of my big concerns about moving away from Windows Mobile, was that the Iphone, at the time, didn’t offer a good email app or copy and paste functionality. It seems the later is now missing from the Microsoft OS.
Having looked at some of the online reviews, Windows Phone 7 (why did they drop the “mobile” bit?) looks pretty impressive and certainly “joins the dots” on some of Microsoft’s other properties, including Office and Xbox LIVE.
Given their declining market share and low % of the mobile search market, is it too late for Microsoft to pull things back? It’s a race that should certainly evolve in 2011.
When’s my phone due for an upgrade?
