I don't get this. I had an iPhone 4, and EVO, and now have a BB9930 & 9810 in addition I have a Windows 7 phone. I really like the Metro UI, it is clean fast and simple to use. This is only in its second major revision and MS has a real winner here. If RIM goes down then I will probably move to Windows Phone for everything. I would consider another iPhone but the UI is stale and needs refreshing.
Phone OS's used: iOS Android; BB 6,7,10 WP 7.5
Current phone OS's: Blackberry 10, 7; Window Phone 7.5
the only people who aren't aweare of that are microsoft and their fanatics. the general public certainly are more than tirred of MS.
ive never met anyone who actually enjoys using a microsoft product - the only reason why people use MS products is because they have to.. as much as i dislike apple, the opposite seems to be true with them.
i use linux on the desktop, and unlike MS people use it because they want to rather than being forced to in order to use a particular app or because they're scared of moving away from what they're familiar with (no matetr how much they loathe windows with a passion)
the desktop is dying (although it's not gonna die anytime soon, but it will for definite in the medium term) and MS will almost certainly have to quit mobile in the next 2/3 years because the general public are never likely to be ever interested. their days in the mobile sector are terminal. the future is in the cloud and on the mobile phone
MS is a company in big trouble in the medium term - they are too big, too slow, too clunky, too lacking in inventiveness, and too eternally uncool(in terms of image) to survive in the long term
i can really see Google Devlopoing a AWESOME desktop OS and become #1.. i mean Windows is getting boring!
Since I'm a Mac user and my primary email address is mac.com address, the iPhone is a natural fit. If I used a GMail account as my primary email address and if I used the other Google services like the calendar, etc, I'd be using a BlackBerry (for the wireless sync over BIS) or an Android phone. Likewise, if I was a Windows pc user and my info was all in Hotmail/Live, I'd try a WP7 device.
It's all about the right tool for your own particular situation.
