Microsoft listens to the critics

When Microsoft announced its new mobile OS in February, it was called Windows Phone 7 Series. Most everyone raved about the new OS, but its name got a lot of flak.

Many complained that it was an overly wordy and complex name that didn't exactly roll off the tongue. Others joked that BMW might take offense over the 7 Series moniker which is used for its flagship luxury sedan.

Microsoft has listened and the OS will now be known as Windows Phone 7 from here on out. The news was relayed via a brief Twitter message by the Windows Phone team.

Now if only Microsoft could do something about true multitasking and copy/paste...

Too bad they can't listen to critics on more important things, like multitasking and copy and paste as you mentioned, Brandon.

Indeed. People who care what a product is named can buy all the Apple products they want.

...I want MS to learn from Apple's mistakes, not repeat them.

EXACTLY.

It's rather pathetic to see that Microsoft thinks its best way to resuscitate its comatose mobile OS is to copy the least developed competitor's feature set and put a Windows design on it... actually it's worse than pathetic, it's simply depressing.
