I have brought A windows phone 7, what do you guys think about it? And whats your favourite model e.g. Lumia 800, htc titan ect. Would you consider buying one? and how does it fare vs. android and ios?
After playing with my friend's Windows 7 phone, I'll admit that it's pretty good. That said, I think it will take a major miracle for Microsoft to compete in a market that is dominated by Apple's iPhone & many different models of Android.
There is ONE THING that might be a game changer ... SKYPE! When Microsoft bought SKYPE, that could potentially be their secret weapon. If Microsoft made Windows Phones use SKYPE & other VOIP technologies as the primary over GSM/CDMA, their users would save a lot of money. In other words, a Windows Phone like that would only need the Wireless Carrier when internet service is unavailable. Wait! It get better. If/when Microsoft teams their SKYPE technology with Facebook, Facebook users will be able to communicate with each other within Facebook ... with or without a Windows Phone.
Google saw this right away, and dropped costs of their competing services, like Google Voice & a few others. I feel Google+ was created for this very reason.
Apple Inc. without Steve Jobs to lead is in a very vulnerable position.
Time will tell =0p...
