Windows Phone 7 is already a failure.
Windows Phone 7 isn’t even out for something like 6 months, but it’s already a complete and utter failure. Sure, it’s getting a lot of buzz, and all of the details have just been released at Microsoft’s MIX conference, and the specs for the phones that will run Windows Phone 7 are capable machine, and they seem to be making most of the right goddamn moves. The interface is shiny and new, even if it is a direct and obvious rip-off of Apple’s iPhone OS, and they promise that their app store will be open in ways that Apple’s isn’t.
It sounds good, sure, until you consider the fact that they’re forcing every phone to come preloaded with Marionette, a virtual Steve Ballmer. And it’s going to launch every time you start the phone And the bald bastard yells at you and you can’t turn the volume down.
Don’t believe me? Take a look at this video they just showed at MIX:
You see why Windows Phone 7 is already a failure? Exactly.
