Is Windows Phone 7 Being Set Up To Fail?

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Lawrence D'Oliveiro, Mar 1, 2011.

  1. More than one reviewer has commented on how alike the current crop of
    Windows Phone 7 devices are. Microsoft set what was ostensibly a minimum
    spec, and that is what the vendors have pretty much stuck to, they don’t
    seem to have much enthusiasm for going beyond that.

    It’s like they can’t really muster the energy to compete.

    But why is that? If there’s a reasonable profit to be made, you would expect
    them to be scrambling over themselves to grab a chunk of that, as has been
    busily happening with Android.

    I mean, either do a product and do it properly, or don’t bother doing it at
    all. Why put out something that seems to be little more than a token
    gesture?
