Interesting, but I can't really see that being used all that often.
WP8 is suffering from Microsoft trying to be Apple and failing at it. I'd be hesitant to make the switch over to that since their WP7 hardware (which hasn't been on the market that long) isn't upgradeable to WP8. If they're willing to screw customers with that kind of upgrade policy, what kind of interaction can you expect from them overall?desidealer49 wrote: ↑Dec 12th, 2012 4:10 pmPositives:
- Gorgeous virtual keyboard.
- Finally an OEM that has not abolished media playback keys on the outside of the phone.
- Nice UI, smooth, based on QNX which is used in critical real time process design so a good thing.
- RIM finally seems to be getting it, slower, but getting it somewhat.
- Gestures!! (love those on playbook)
- Not as "sexy" in the eyes of the iOS/android crowd and hence will face a uphill battle like WP8 no matter how many positive things are present in it. Apparently choice ends after the magic number 2.
Blackberry is proven, and has fans that have jumped ship to Android and iOS. If they'd released this phone a year earlier I, for one, would never have switched to Android. They've now got a long, hard fight ahead of them to win back their old customers as well as attracting new ones.
