Wibble, the trouble is, you're so convinced of your own rightness that you're not prepared to let little things like the facts get in your way (I note that you were wrong about the number of available phones, not that you acknowledge that fact, of course...). Instead, you childishly make up insulting names for products you dislike. Way to set an example.
Now I'm not going to just slate your choice of the iPhone 4. I've used one, it's not bad, but it has drawbacks. In my opinion, the following are particularly relevant:
- The first massive advantage of WP7 over iOS is that you get your choice of hardware. For example, the iPhone 4 had a 5Mpg LED flash camera (i.e. the bare minimum) whereas the HTC Mozart has 8Mpg Xnenon flash. You will probably say you don't care, but the point is, you don't get a choice with iOS - you just get whatever his Jobsness decides to give you. Alternatively, if you want a physical keyboard, there are WP7 phones with those - but on iOS? Not a chance. If you want a bigger screen, WP7 goes up to the HD7's massive 4.3" - but on iOS? "Thou shalt take thine 3.5" and thou shalt be thankful for it! So sayeth the Jobs." In your other posts on this article, you rant about things that are missing from WP7, but the above choices are all missing from iOS - hypocrite much?
- The second massive advantage of WP7 is Zune Pass. I *really* cannot stress this enough. With iTunes, I could listen to a preview of the song I wanted, but it wouldn't really leave me with a feeling for how the album sounded all together. For that information I would have to pay iTunes so that I could listen to the whole album - which is pretty much a gamble. With Zune Pass, I pay £7.50 per month (and I get to keep 10 DRM-free songs a month - which would cost £7.90 on iTunes for those same 10 songs) and it's this simple:
1) Plug the phone into my computer;
2) Open the Zune software and browse the Marketplace;
3) Drag and drop any music I want onto the phone (songs, albums, podcasts, whatever) onto the phone & it plays flawlessly and costs nothing extra.
If I download 20 albums, and only 5 turn out to be any good, that's no problem - it didn't cost me anything, and I can simply delete the 15 I don't like and download another 20 albums, to see what they're like. And so on. This is the future of music consumption, and iTunes simply doesn't offer anything that even vaguely competes.
- I could go on about the joys of Sharepoint, proper Exchange integration, Xbox Live and the usefulness of dynamic tiles, but I get the distinct impression that you would probably ignore all of those advanatages as well, in order to maintain your myopic world view
Mine's the one with the manual in the pocket 'cos, you know, I actually like to check my facts sometimes...
