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.

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.

Its like Zune vs. Ipod thing all over again. Once again Microsoft make a bad copy of another company's existing product that is years late to the party and functionally worse than the already years old original.

Microsoft deserve to fail for their lack of innovation.
