Yesterday I wrote an article questioning Microsoft’s valuing of the end user. Today during the MIX11 keynote by Joe Belfiore a metric ton of new features were unveiled for the platform. With the new APIs and UI enhancements one would have to be hard pressed to find fault in the commitment the Windows Phone team is making to the platform. There is a difference between Microsoft’s iceberg approach to product launch and the Windows Phone team’s ability to get things done. Unfortunately people blame the wrong people when hiccups happen. Today is a day to rejoice and acknowledge that Windows Phone should be a worthy member of the Big Three smartphone players whenever Mango is released. Here’s a quick rundown of a few notable enhancements to look forward to followed by an excellent video Channel9 did with Joe Belfiore demoing some new features. You’ll really want to pay attention to it all, its that good.
Thanks to Channel9 for the video.
