Last fall, when Microsoft launched the brand new Windows Phone platform, they promised a change from the way in which we would use our cell phones.
Those who are already in love with their current handsets, regardless of the OS they are running under, will certainly not feel the urge to switch to Windows Phone.
But for those who are not as happy with their current choices, Microsoft's Windows Phone platform might prove just the thing.
The company is certain that its OS can deliver a far better experience than rival mobile platforms, and states it at any given time.
The last one to claim that the experience Windows Phone
can deliver would easily top Android or iOS was Brandon Watson, director for Windows Phone 7 at Microsoft.
In a comment to a blog post from an unhappy iPhone-Android user, Brandon Watson notes that any handset running under Windows Phone Mango
(the next OS version) can deliver a far better experience than any of the two rival platforms.
Moreover, he bets $1000 that the experience on Windows Phone will be far better than what the two have to offer.
“Take Windows Phone for a spin. I'll send you a developer phone with the new Mango OS on it. Give it an honest run, and if you don't love it more than either of your iPhone or Android experiences, I'll make a $1000 donation to the charity of your choice,” he states.
The said user, Scott Adams has had some unpleasant experience with both Android and iOS platforms, and noted them all in a blog post, claiming dropped calls, poor battery life, hard to use touch keyboards, and the like.
According to Watson, Windows Phone
comes to the market with a better experience, eliminating all of these issues so that users can enjoy the most of their friends and of their lives.
“If Androids dream of electronic iSheep, people dream about people - and that's what you will get with Windows Phone. Keep in constant contact with those most important to you with Live Tiles, groups, messaging threads, and native Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn,” he noted.
“And no special instructions on how to hold the phone to make calls. Oh, and the battery lasts a long time.”
