iPhone's Microsoft competition will lack some features

in Future Apple Hardware edited January 2014
Oh noes Microsoft fanbois of AppleInsider ... the Windows Phone 7 Series will lack cut and paste, and multitasking.



I hope you're as hypercritical of it as you are the iPhone.

    Here's proof the pundits are changing their tune depending on what company's phone lacks features.


    It was unreal the iPhone couldn't multitask, and lacked cut and paste, but Thurrott loves the Windows Phone 7 Series.

    Thanks for the links. John does a good job of exposing Paul's hypocrisy. Some people have really short memories. I blame this smart phone culture

    It just goes to show there are apologists on both sides. The reality is that Microsoft saw the wisdom of Apple's ways and is emulating their feature set closely. It makes sense to do so.

    It's no different to Apple fans saying they could live without copy & paste, video recording and an auto-focus camera. Double standards are rife on both sides of the fence.

    I think lack of copy and paste is a major fail. It's MinMobile after all

    I seriously don't know what they are thinking...

    The iPhone appeared out of nowhere, at a time when it didn't really have any equal competition. IMHO, it was a brilliant and flashy upgrade to the feature phones, like the Moto Razr, rather than a contender for the BlackBerry market. The iPhone is a phone + a reasonably full Internet experience. No keyboard, no office apps. It was made for enjoyment

    The WinMobile platform on the other hand, has been around for many years and clunky generations, mostly in use by business people. The customer base is not gonna take to a pared down, half-baked version of what they used to have. And it doesn't even run native code, everything is sandboxed. Why, why a bad copy of the iPhone? Everyone's got one...even Google
