Hit the nail on the head
The cost of moving to O/S would be astronomical. Licensing costs are insignificant compared to the cost of re-writing apps and training staff.
Looks like Marty found some fuel for the DeLorean. Welcome to the future, Marty. In our world, Windows is stable.
Re: You can't even send feedback!
Um, yeah, you can send feedback. Settings => Feedback.
all about the ratios...
20 managers per developer is expensive business.
It can't just be me who things this cock-up is a blessing in disguise. The fewer G4S staff providing 'security' the better. I have far more trust in the military to provide security over some lazy chav who has never done a days work in their life.
I think this BBC report sums up their staff (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-18856922)
When Surface was announced people in my office were talking about it. Not heard a peep about this announcement. I don't want to be either an MS or Apple fanboi, but as somebody else said - meh, another 7" tablet.
Probably going to be the best 7" available for the price/quality, but what people really want is an iPad alternative (good build quality, tablet specific apps, and expandable memory!).
Re: You mean
That's how it works for *nix. Waiting for the down votes...
Along with their misleading 'fact's they will hopefully they can also scrap that stupid storyline.
OK, how about East Finchley (not on BT 'not quite so infinity' and no VM) getting 3.5. That is 3.5MB in London!
bug free like Android?
WP7 is about the most idiot proof phone out there.
I love my xbox, but I wil never use it for films/tv .... that is unless they patent a noiseless fan
Might finally a reason for me to get an iPhone. How do I get it to say that to the missus?
...and how many mainstream consumers use XBMC and a dreambox?
WinPho is for the mass market, like iOS. It is designed to work out of the box!
Those iconic headphones
Oh how much I hate Apple for introducing those 'iconic' noise leaking headphones. Bus journeys have never been the same since!
I really don't understand how some companies make TVs look so ugly. Calm it down on the logo. Nobody wants a huge 'Cello', aka, 'I bought a cheap and nasty tv' logo stuck on the front.
Sensible branding excercise
I'm sorry but whether the *nix brigade like it or not, this is a sensible marketing/branding decision. Yes, the phone may be good but Nokia have aligned themselves with MS and therefore it doesn't want to blur the line on what software their phones will be offering.
Btw, for the WinPho haters, it is probably worth you having a play with it, you'll be surprised, you might actually like it!
