Not a feeble-minded copycat
David Pogue on Microsoft’s latest update to their mobile operating system:
“Windows Phone 7.5 is gorgeous, classy, satisfying, fast and coherent. The design is intelligent, clean and uncluttered.”
“Most impressively, Windows Phone is not a feeble-minded copycat. Microsoft came up with completely fresh metaphors that generally steer clear of the iPhone/Android design.”
“Microsoft’s work here deserves attention, praise and sales. Maybe it’s not quite as mature as the iPhone or Android. But the world is a more interesting place with Windows Phone in it.”
When was the last time you could say that about a Microsoft product? Things have certainly changed.
