quote: Replying To: Jason Like Windows Phoneby Reclaimer77 on April 17, 2012 at 5:29 PMIf you don't, you're wrong and are a "hater" and he's going to write another 50 articles defending his purchase.These executives steer ships worth millions, sometimes billions of dollars. They're as much of an expert in their field as anyone else out there. Instead of meeting their comments with disdain and a conspiratorial tone, we should see things from their point of view in a proper context.
quote: Americans think the Lumia 900 is "cheap". It's not. In Europe and the UK they don't do the subsidized contract deal like we do as much, they buy their phones. For what a Lumia 900 costs over there, you can get a top of the line 720p dual core smartphone. Again, understanding the CONTEXT of his statements.
quote: Where's the contradiction? He's saying what everyone already knows. Microsoft waited WAY too late to take this platform seriously, and they needed to come out with a game-changer like the 2007 iPhone. They haven't done that, not even close. That's why it's hard to sell Windows Phone. This isn't rocket science.
quote: Translation: I'm losing money keeping these things on the shelf. Microsoft and their hardware suppliers haven't done enough to make this platform competitive with Android and Apple smartphones. Microsoft waited way too long to make this platform competitive, and 9 out of 10 of my customers want an Android or Apple phone now.Jason I realize that YOU think Windows Phone is great. I'm glad you're happy. But it seems like you're now way too personally invested in the platform when you start taking all these executives opinions personally and out of context. If WP7 was making them money, they would love it I'm quite sure.
quote: Did you know that the Lumia 900 hasn't been sold in any European nation yet?
quote: Again, the article is relatively clear cut. The different carrier executives were giving conflicting/contradictory advice.
quote: My commentary has been very consistent since I first started covering Windows Phone, and if you review my past articles you (should) realize that.I didn't suddenly wake up yesterday and realize some shocking Windows Phone revelation.
