Windows phones just don't sell. They're actually very nice, but no one cares.
Just a big waste of marketing, software and hardware.

Year old OS. Hard to argue they haven't sold up to now. Also hard to argue they need to sell this year and into 2012 or they are in trouble. But, Mango is ready for prime time, these are WONDERFUL looking devices, and Nokia, Toshiba and ZTE give Microsoft access to markets they never had before. They will sell this year and 2012.

exactly.. its not like android was a record seller its first year.. but Microsoft is in the game and is playing good cards right now.. but they really need to get nokia up and running to take advantage of all the markets... if wp7 had more apps, i dud chose it over an other os..

They said the same thing about the xbox 360! Last week NDP stats showed xbox 360 is the number one seller 14 out of 15 months. So wirelesscon, you can con your small brains but you can't con the many smart people out there that see wp7 as one of the most intuative, easy, well balanced, well thought out OS's out there.

If people werent so marketing driven and paid attention to hardware, ease of use, and features people would buy WP7 over iOS and Android most of the time. WP7 is the most balanced of all the OS's in my opinion. Its simple enough for anyone to use and developers are working faster on WP7 than iOS or Android in their history.

Man...this is exciting news!!! I thought Mango was released today...I got all excited when I loaded up my Zune software. This OS is so underrated......people who talk soo much crap on WP7 probably haven't used it. I have owned several phones.....I really have...I have had Samsung Captivate, iPhone 4, HTC Evo 4G....I enjoy ALL Operating systems. They all have good attributes but in my opinion...WP7 is much more stable and fastest to use. Emails, switching from programs (with no multitask), internet, and most importantly ZUNE marketplace is amazing. If you have not used Zune....do yourself a favor and try it!!!! I believe they offer 14 days free....its amazing.

Its all about the PHONE not the OS.. Look at WebOS GREAT OS, horrible phone. It failed.
Windows Needs more phones in teh lineup like the Dell Venue Pro, and Dell needs to start shipping and selling them at Tmo and ATT Stores, and minimum at Best Buy.
If the PHONE is unique and different it will get noticed. MOST The WP7s on the market are no different that the other androids out there.
I say this because I have a DVP< and my son a HD7, but daughter and wife have Android. Trying to get tehm to get a WP7 phone, but not enough difference to make them change. But if there was a CUTE WP7 phone they would buy it.
Their choices were based on the color of the phone and the way it fit in their hand not the Geek factor we all have.
