shock and surprise
I used one of the windows ce phones and I hated it, ever since then, each improvement has been like a car crash, looks awful, clunky and slow.
my mate sat in front of me and put down his phone and to be honest I never saw it was a windows phone, just that it was a HTC, I picked it up and it was really iphone like, although it felt a bit more solid and a nicer screen.
I opened it up, holy crap, WM7!!!
now normally I'd have that recoil reaction which would be like, run away!! or run for the hills! or some kind of combination, but I thought ok, lets see what microsoft has done this time, to be honest, I thought, lets have a laugh.....
opened it up from the lock screen, big icons, ok, scrolled about, wow, smooth, opened an app, cool flip like animation, typed something, nice keyboard, very fast, very responsive, apps are quick to open, quick to change, screen is gorgeous, played about a bit.
you know what....I think it might be the first microsoft phone I would WANT to buy, seriously, I really came away from that table thinking that I was impressed and actually I really didn't want to feel like that, you know you get a bit confused, it's microsoft right? so why do I like it???
but I really did like it and I felt it was smooth, fast, sleek, responsive, I mean, WTF?? I should hate it right?
please guys, take a reasonable attitude, go down to carphone warehouse and try the HTC trophy, just try it with an open mind, I swear you will be impressed, at least initially, perhaps over time it wanes a bit, but to be honest, android is the same, but my android is slow, clunky, unresponsive, etc, but then again it's a hero so it's only 520-something Mhz so I suppose we should expect that it's slow.
