How about saying it's the fastest growing App ecosystem in history? Hell, even WP7 has obtained more Apps than both Blackberry and webOS combined, in half the time (no, seriously) it took HP to acquire and ultimately dump webOS... which is sad......but it's growing at a steady pace as Microsoft is doing a good job attracting developers...
+1 on that one. In addition to that claim of :get more manufacturers to build quality phones. The only one that has taken WP7 seriously, has been HTC with their HD series
I think it is better to have fewer but good/quality applicaitons, instead of having lots of crappy useless **** I see, especially in the Android market place.Windows Phone 7 has nearly 30,000 apps in its marketplace. That's a tiny figure compared to iOS or Android
not if the iPhone 5 gets released before thenTomorrow_Rains said:
I think Mango will lead the sales Q1 next year once nokia enters the picture.
In time the W7p market will be the same, so enjoy it whilst it lastArchean said:

Catchup in terms in functionality i can agree, but to catch up in sales and appeal, particularly appeal, thats going to take some time.Archean said:
I couldn't have put it better lawfer, I totally agree that at least two (2) updats a year is what MS should target for WP. I think if they adopt such model they probably will catch up iOS + Android in maximum of 1/2 cycles.
This is probably what can persuade some users, not me thoughArchean said:
Although when it comes to integration of social side of things, I think they are at least on par if not better.
Well some may not agree, but IMO Android simply imitated iOS interface, so I don't regard it as genuine. Now to appeal, that is because people have a herd mentality, generally they don't spend too much time to figure out things for themselves. Make no mistake I've tried several android phones in last year and I am not impressed, specially when it comes to stability and reliability. Hell my older HTC T/TII / Omnia WinMo cells were far superior in this regard, in fact Omnia never ever froze/or crashed for almost 3 years before I accidentally dropped it and broke its screen . Whereas, TII well lets just say I screwed it while trying to update to a custom rom, but luckily I was able to salvage it .Catchup in terms in functionality i can agree, but to catch up in sales and appeal, particularly appeal, thats going to take some time.
I am not sure how you reached this judgement, by the way Omnia is Samsung's cell phone line. I don't hate Big G, I just don't like their invasive behavior. IMO Google is nearly a monopoly, which probably is causing such behavior in the first place.When it comes to google, android or samsung you're automatically in hate mode and this time it has really clouded your judgement.
Neither I said or implied this, in fact for next 1/2 years I don't think WP will come close to number of units sold by other competitors. The difference in point of view arises mainly because in the corporate environment we prefer 'stability and reliability' over useless stupid additions/generally unreliable tech. etc. So probably this fact too plays a part in judgement / formation of opinion.To think that WP7 will catch up with android and apple in terms sales and appea in a short period of timel, well i don't even know what to say about that, other then don't hold your breath
