Please stop sending me stories about how terribly Windows Phone is supposedly doing in whatever market. I have an RSS reader too. And in case you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m pretty prolific. You should note what I choose not to write about in addition to what I do write about. Not everything is a legitimate story.
What I’m trying to say is that these early reports don’t provide any credible figures. But even if sales are as bad as all get-out, you’re forgetting one thing: It almost doesn’t matter., because Microsoft is in this for the long haul. They’re going to continue pushing this system ahead, and pushing it to developers and users.
Put simply, Windows Phone is already more innovative than anything offered by Apple or Google in the smart phone space. And it’s only going to get better over time. I’m not just comfortable with my phone, I recommend it to others and prefer it over everything else out there for myself. Windows Phone is just demonstrably better. There are few products where it’s so black and white. Maybe that’s what has the other side so freaked.
And before some Apple sycophant points out that I’ve been writing about the ways in which Microsoft needs to fix Windows Phone, my response is simple: Right. I’m supporting Windows Phone users here, not cherry-coating it for the delight of some corporate overseer.
