LG came out on this slow news day to say one thing (using many words) to Pocket-Lint, and that’s the only negative data seen for Windows Phone 7. Mostly stating that the OS is easy to use (fact) and has a very large market share it could reach (probably), but for the major techies (yours truly) can become boring (also fact). To continue what LG is saying here, I can reference them: “From an industry perspective we had a high expectation, but from a consumer point of view the visibility is less than we expected.” A sort of “so-so” remark, right?
And that also:
LG has been closely collaborating with Microsoft from the beginning. What we feel is that it is absolutely perfect for a huge segment out there. What we feel is that some people believe that some operating systems, mainly Google, are extremely complicated for them. But Windows Phone 7 is very intuitive and easy to use.
And he’s not finished talking yet:
For tech guys like us it might be a little bit boring after a week or two, but there are certain segments that it really appeals to. We strongly feel that it has a strong potential even though the first push wasn’t what everyone expected.
Personally, Windows Phone 7 is like Android 1.0, but stylized as Android 3.0, and using handsets that came from Android 2.1. If that made any sense, it means that Microsoft needs better handsets, and hopefully, will get more sales. Or more marketing.
