With Windows Phone 7 OS being the new kid on the block, it was always going to be hard to come up against Apple’s iPhone software — iOS 4, and of course Google’s Android system currently in Froyo, and soon to be Gingerbread.
As Windows Phone 7 was delayed quite considerably, there were certain mistakes that it should have been able to avoid. One notable feature being copy & paste. This is a prime feature that Microsoft need, and should have included. It is a simple, yet effective feature that a vast majority of smartphone users want, and use on a regular basis.
Another noticeable absentee is Multitasking. You would have thought that Microsoft would have seen the disaster Apple stumbled upon once they announced that iOS too was ignoring these simple features.
When it comes to teething problems, it seems that Windows Phone 7 has escaped quite lightly. But in a recent article by our very own Gary Johnson, he reports that there have been stories of WP7 actually damaging microSD cards. Alan Ng also states that there have been numerous stories about WiFi issues.
Although Microsoft seem to have delivered quite an extraordinary piece of software with it’s unique interface, it seems as though they have not got it quite right yet.
What features would you like in addition to what is already included? And if any, what features would you like to be removed? Has Microsoft got something to build on in the future, or do you think this could be their last crack at the smartphone business?
