Microsoft knocks Google's Android for "copying" Apple's iOS

It's an accusation that we've heard before, mostly from Steve Jobs, but Microsoft has also taken the time to jab at Google and its Android OS. During the announcement for Windows Phone 8, Joe Belfiore took a swing at Android, claiming the OS copied Apple's UI and that design in those companies has "stagnated"...

I was always open to the idea of Windows Phones, and potentially considering one for myself.

Was. Microsoft just messed that up.

They just want to stir the pot. MS has failed and will fail in the mobile arena. The only thing that will save them is marketing this stuff really well and hard, and by using the used car salesman approach. It's like those Honda commercials... where the car salesmen tells the couple aahhh don't look at the odessy it is not worth it and the couple turns around and says ahhh we'll go across the street to the Honda dealership and take the honda odessy instead....

Mxyptlk...you only support Microsoft now because they say Android copied iOS. You won't be here otherwise!
And i agree with networkdood.

MS and Apple tell the world that Google copied.. But Google never said anything about them copying android features, Google is too busy with innovations..

And guess what, who's got the most advance Mobile OS now?
Yeah, silence is golden..
