The reviews are in. This IT support/gadget lover guy is truly impressed with what Microsoft has done with the new windows 7 phones. It is amazing to think that this company might actually “get it” for the first time in a long time, and that it may be what the consumer really wants. I know, you’re saying, “Windows 7 the operating system really seemed to stop the slide away from consumer mistrust and anger. I mean Vista, friends!” I would also like to mention this; has anyone seen a single Mac vs. PC commercial in a long time? Must have done something right there. Take that, Apple!
I have been looking at all the boring presentations and long form reviews. They do complement the fact that these phones really do seem sleek. I was a little worried when I heard Microsoft was going to try to enter the smart phone market again. I mean have you ever used a Windows Mobile device?
It was painful and traumatizing.
It got the job done but it wasn’t really fun getting there at all. To see what they have done here is truly amazing. They’re putting great features in a standard OS where it will be the same experience whether you by Samsung HTC and so on. Integration with Zune? My poor little Zune looks like a relic now. Blackberry needs to look out, if Microsoft offers robust business features RIM is looking more and more like a dinosaur. Well, like the mobile dinosaur that Microsoft used to look like. They just keep pushing the same subpar models and features, hanging on to the “Business” moniker. This might not be an iPhone killer or an Android killer but RIM is on the ropes for sure. I must also say I got into the business of IT support because of Microsoft and it’s really great to see them making waves again. I might even think to try one of their phones out, I don’t know that I would give up my shiny new iPhone but who knows these things are much snazzier then I first thought.
