Fuck apple and google!!! Microsoft just ROCKED mix!!!!!! If they get that out sometime in fall like they hope too…..both ios and android will be behind wp7 in every aspect except 1….and that’s app numbers. WOOOOW!!!!

Jimski:

Agreed. They just gotta focus on that "if". Or give everyone a reason to buy a new phone with Mango onboard.

David K:

Not only is the Kienct for Windows SDK now out but all of those developers in attendance just got a free one. Brilliant shit. Kinect is a way to keep the PC distinct from any mobile OS you can find. The integration of a full array of sensors (camera, voice and depth) are a shitton of potential for developers and users. MS just kept the PC market alive and thriving…very well played.

Chris Leiter:

And market reception. People who have wp7 will need to push wp7 to other people big time in order for it to make a difference. I STILL HAVEN’T SEEN ONE IN THE REAL WORLD.

Ramon:

I don’t know what you’re seeing….but the people who predicted it to be #2 by 2015….they must have seen some ;)

antoine3Doug Simmons:

Me neither. And I’ve seen a lot of phones. This is good poll material, have you seen one.
Hey Ramon, could you use your crystal ball and tell me about how long until you think I’ll see one?

Ramon:

Move to a city and/or one where the local morning news doesn’t involve the neighbor cow rampaging down the street as a headliner

Doug Simmons:

I live in Manhattan and frequently use the subway, the place of maybe the highest exposed phone concentration and I have not seen one single Windows Phone phone.

I have however seen at least two of those Palm/Handspring Treos. Maybe those two people will stumble really really wildly into the Windows Phone display section of some AT&T dealership and I’ll run into them again.

Ramon:

Cut ya shit Simmons….i see them all the time…im gonna start taking pics

Jeremy Bartz:

I finally saw one in person the other day.  Co Worker got one and he wouldn’t even let me hold onto it for a second..

David K:

I’ll show you one…I’ll shove it right up your… oh wait I forgot you fight wars and I sit at a desk all day…  anyway, the letters "NFC" didn’t appear. Nor did any talk about CPUs beyond Snapdragon. Nor did new chasis…there are still things that they didn’t discuss and we don’t know what that means.

antoine5Doug Simmons:

Well it would be more constructive David if instead of shoving it up his ass you could just sort of position it right near his ass, like right up against it, so he could grab on and execute a wiping motion with it.

Chris Leiter:

Lol

David K:

We’re all becoming way too friendly with Chris’ ass for my comfort level here. Anyway, WP7 still has a way to go. This ‘fall’ thing is pretty far away, as is Nokia (who was in attendance but barely said anything) but there’s enough marketshare to go around and MS will pick it up pretty quickly and since they’ll integrate with your PC and Xbox it will help them to grow. With that said, the next few months (aside from finally releasing a VZ phone and maybe some new phones with the same specs we have already) I didn’t hear any news that gets people to go buy a phone today if they weren’t interest in it yesterday…

Doug Simmons

A way to go? Is there any bottom limit of how badly the phone you decide you should proceed to fall in love with ends up selling before you stop with the "give it a little time" bullshit?

antoine4Ramon:

Lmao funny… I still see Apple selling Mac os and Google trying to push out chrome os.

Point is….a slice of a market no matter how small it is…returns a profit. There is no failing.

Not to mention wp7 is far from that….its successful is every way Microsoft designed it to be. And Microsoft don’t fail at things….

Cut ya shit Simmons….i see them all the time…im gonna start taking pics

Just got a call from a friend saying he just ordered a HTC Surround
because he liked mine. That makes 6 people I've converted and would
have been 8 if Verizon would have had the Trophy available last week
instead my coworker and girlfriend got almost year old iPhone 4s.

Ramon: I just filed a motion up your ass to keep the case open and the grand jury asked the judge if they could also rule that you’re full of shit and I believe I saw one of the jurors fiddling with what may have been an EVO 4G.

Murani: Whoop dee fucking doo you converted some people with your email client that’s fucking up line breaks. We don’t need the fucking line breaks kthx. Any of us can do that, convert people. I could have converted your coworkers to webOS if I had gotten to them before you. Shit I converted my own mother to Kubuntu Linux with OpenOffice and she loves it. Could have put her on a Mac and she’d love it. Couldn’t put her on Windows 7, she had just had enough with Microsoft and XP with another msconfig cleaning job wasn’t doing it for her (or for me, having to help her constantly, which changed once I got her a proper laptop). What none of us can seem to do is spot a stranger anywhere with a Windows Phone that we didn’t convert ourselves or find in the back corner of an AT&T dealership holding a empty demo model.

You know what’s funny to me? One of the things? Is that both you and the vocal part of our audience (our Android audience is there, just don’t have as much isolationism plaguing them fueling their own shit talk) think that you’re right when you’re taking on me when deep down, as is evident over and over in the declined wagers I offer to make, you know I’m right. For those of you who agree with that statement subconsciously, I renew my year-old advice to short RIM if you want to make some money without betting me directly.

But I don’t need you all to come and confess I’m right about everything and that you’re sorry. This pussy shit manifesting itself in the form of retaliatory fire against me for invading your threads, this self-delusion… it pleases me.

Murani you punk ass bitch it’s impossible to reason with you when all you want to do is call each other names. Taking this to MDLeaks, maybe one of our Android visitors will get my back this time. And for crying out loud would you assholes change your fucking sigs already? Damn.

You fairy.

  1. Are you guys going to get into virtual fisticuffs now? Can’t we all just get a long? :-)

  2. Hahahahahahahah

    Oh man, this is raw.

    For the record, I 100% swear that I’ve never seen a WP7 device ‘in the wild’.

  3. Amotfors, huh. If your Swedish Craigslist masseuses are anything like ours over here in the States, you must be enjoying life and getting a good local discount. Nice girls, impressive “technique.”

  4. Ramon summed it up with his official response but I feel the need to add to that since i’m here. People buy and use Android phones but the percentage of users who truly love that platform is laughably low. Your day is coming Simmons and i’ll be seeing you at the betting parlor.

  5. Where did you get that data, exit polling outside some Verizon and on WMPowerUser?

    See me at the betting parlor when, when NoDo hits AT&T for the current phone lineup? C’mon you pussy let’s wager.

  6. “Deliberate mispelling of the word ‘fanboy’ typically referring to an annoying, immature fan of a specific video game console.”

    Not a perfect match in this scenario but still fitting seeing all the hate you were spreading.

    Anyway, thanks for being a sport and yeah, no complaints about the masseuses here :)

  7. Just the other day I was thinking to myself, you know, in spite of no captcha and membership registration shit and my provoking people, we haven’t seen any incidents of impersonation which was odd. Thanks for fixing that, feels like we’ve “made it.”

    Now go enjoy your girls and making those 8GB count on that Omnia of yours.

  8. lol the gloves came off for this one. chris wont admint to owning a surround! i’ll have to get some pics of him soon.

  9. Now I’ve fixed that perhaps you should implement disqus, intensedebate or facebook comments – makes life a lot easier (or, harder, if you like – for impostors).

    As for my Omnia7, I obviously got the 16GB model. 8GB just doesn’t cut it no matter how much cloud storage comes with it.

  10. Well he only “admitted” to it by visiting the site in the past using his phone, reporting its make and other details (and I was showing off). You could always spoof your user agent if you were embarrassed about your device if you were in his shoes somehow — no wait, that’s exactly the sort of thing I bet you cannot do on WP7. Because it’s for people who get scared if they see an Advanced section of a settings menu, so they’re better off with only a few things to adjust like font size and offering to remember passwords maybe.

  11. Damn… They’re just phones, people. They’re giving the dang things away on Amazon (WP7 and Android anyway, Apple still thinks they’ve got some reason to charge $200 for their crap). I think the technology is great, but it’s not like you prove your intellectual superiority by picking one free smartphone over another.

    Unless of course you picked up a slick new windows phone that never has to ask you “Force process to close?”. :D

  12. I’ve seen somewhere in the high teens on the subway now (since I got mine in January). More on the J, F and 6 than anything else but then again, I was looking for them, Simmons. Most are the Focus, some are HD7. A lot more on the LIRR (saw an Omnia 7 this morning, guy definitely didn’t look like he knew of a word of english, makes sense that he was going toward the airtrain).

    For the record, I don’t know if I appreciate the subject line, the struggle to define the purposes/uses of Ramon’s ass or the fact that whenever you post something it strongly resembles a tumblr page for a PETA supporter but I thoroughly enjoyed reading this.

  13. I’ve tried talking friends and family members into going the Android route (pre-WP7), but I kept getting interrupted by other friends of theirs interjecting “Don’t go with Droid! I have one and I HATE IT.” (Yes, these discussions were on Facebook–which might be saying something right there.) Given VZ’s dumb early marketing strategy, in which EVERY Android phone was a “Droid” (and not just the Motorolas), I’m not sure if they were objecting to the OS or to a particular handset. I couldn’t ask, either, because their hatred for everything associated with the platform made it impossible to get them to speak calmly on the subject.

    On the other hand, I have several other friends who purchased WP7 handsets and speak very highly of them. I had nothing to do with their purchasing decisions: I don’t even have a WP7 handset, myself, and didn’t talk to them about it beforehand.

    I understand that this is just a small sample, but these experiences have shaped my impression of the two OSes in obvious ways.

  14. That’s just mean Joe.

    By the way, I’ve noticed you’ve managed to keep my attention across three articles now. That’s pretty good. Any interest in becoming a writer?
