  1. Well, when it comes to aesthetics, the Windows phone 7 manages to impress. But I see nothing groundbreaking or innovative that hasn’t been done before by the androids and iOSes of the world!

    1. Well, when it comes to aesthetics, the Windows phone 7 manages to impress.

      Manages to impress? Have you used a Windowsphone? This UI is the cleanest, most aesthetic, most fluid user interface that I have seen on any mobile platform. This UI blows every other out of the water. This UI is so good that I am getting myself a Windowsphone as my primary device inspite of its current limited features.

      This UI is so good that I repent of ever saying that if Nokia makes a Windowsphone I wouldn’t buy it (yes; sacrilegious as that sounds). If they made one today, I’d pick it up tomorrow.

      I have an iPhone 3GS (iOS v4.2.1) and a Palm Pre right here in the office. I have handled some of the latest Android devices. I have a Nokia N8 here as well. The Windowsphone UI is in a class of its own. As much as I like the iOS UI, it isn’t compelling enough to make me want to use an iPhone as my primary device. Right now, iOS almost looks toy-like to me.

      But I see nothing groundbreaking or innovative that hasn’t been done before by the androids and iOSes of the world!

      That’s because you haven’t used a Windowsphone device yet. Please, go get one, then come back and let’s further this discussion. Believe me, still images do no justice to WP7’s user interface.

  2. @Yomi really interesting. . Coming from you, I have to accept it, even without any grain of salt. I accept that a trial will convince me!

    But meanwhile, allow me to make my impression based on videos from microsoft, youtube and hands-on review from engadget, gsmarena. AND ALSO FROM THE GREAT Yomi himself from MobilityNigeria.

    I’m waiting for more of your intriguing analysis/review of the Windows phone 7 here!!
