Windows Phone

With an announcement on the official blog of Windows Phone, came the news that the mobile operating system of Microsoft came to its version RTM (Release to Manufacturing or in Christian: list to be used), the work of the development team has finished, and the process of final integration with the hardware, software and networks, the market and its partners is already underway. OS isn’t any mystery at this point, betas and technical previews for developers have already been launched, and we have seen some devices filtered with Windows Phone 7 in operation. Says proud Terry Myerson’s Microsoft blog, this has been the most tested enterprise mobile platform so far (the marketing networks), and they have valid feedback both of their partners, and developers and early adopters to perfect the system until you reach this instance that is ready. Quite similar to the process you are applying with your software for PCs. The only differences that highlight the RTM version of the previously seen technical preview are some integrations with Facebook (buttons I like embedded, the possibility of updating the State easily, and filters for contacts).

I’m not particularly a fan of Microsoft products and their networks of marketing (except perhaps of Office that is undoubtedly the best in what makes), but lately they have claimed quite with good new versions of their stuff, Windows 7 is an example, Office 2010 another. Although first impressions of the OS for mobile were not very favorable, as they stand out in Engadget seems that Microsoft listened to these views and improved the problems. Is that really need to enter the mobile market with force if they don’t want to be overwhelmed by those who today are at the forefront of technology, where mobility is what matters most (or most sells, that is what also to enterprises more care). Because then you will have to see when phones carrying Windows Phone 7 start to circulate which is the acceptance of users, we are those who ultimately decide the success or failure of a product (networks of the) market). Points in favor that can give Windows Phone 7 phones an advantage are the integration with Xbox, and also it seems that the integration of Foursquare which was Inti, in addition to the aforementioned with Facebook, functionality that will surely be popular is very attractive. Who of you are planning to buy a phone with the new mobile OS from Microsoft?
