Microsoft forgets Windows Phone in Windows Live Messenger ad

Microsoft forgets Windows Phone in Windows Live Messenger ad
An ad for Windows Live Messenger surfaced recently that specifically said, “Chat with your friends, whether they’re using an iPhone, Android, BlackBerry or PC.” When you read that, you get the suspicious feeling that there might be one other type of device that Windows Live Messenger is available for. What was it? Oh yeah! Windows Phone.

While Messenger does come with Windows Phone, you would think Microsoft would take the opportunity to list with the other devices that you could communicate with, especially since it’s their own device. The good news is, at least on the mobile messenger information page at Windows Phone gets its own tab.

This time we’ll chalk it up to the ‘ol whoops. Hopefully moving forward Microsoft will take any opportunity it can to promote its own devices.

In the mobile world you must have this sense. Liitle quote for Androids fans : here in France, Orange has had an article saying Android Market reached 10 billion downloads... What's the point, you say ? --> the photo in the article showed a full bench (at least 5 or 6) of smartphones...a full bench of Windows Phones ! Wondering how they can confuse with a so huge difference in interface... Source :

Live Messenger is part of our Windows Phones. The omission is with the platforms Messenger can chat with. Windows Phones should have been listed.
