Wisdom words from a person that NEVER put a WP7 on their phones, since Sony never like pay anything to others, they like all to be free and they are the most proprietary accessories company in the world...Shame on Sony...
If they don't have Android they surely disappear from phone market, since their "OS" is crappy as crap. And they need so desperate Android to survive...also they don't do it in Symbian either....so Sony is just an "opportunist"
Its obvious when you think about it.. No offence to WP7 users but anyone who digs deep into both OS's will come to the same conclusion. Mind you, its very possible that as WP7 develops, it could become something more than it is currently. As of now though, honestly, I don't think its a match, technically speaking or otherwise.
I would love them to consider meego or tizen and then,have a limited amount of wp7 phns for trials in the market. But,for SE choosing to drop feature phones is a great mistake. Android is a battery drainer and not everybody know how to tweek it. There has been complains about SE battery in the past but a move to android totaly will make them look like motorola in the African market where am from. Meego and symbian are power efficient and i would love to see them try them out for power sake.
I need to argue, 04 Oct 2011I don't like the UI of WP7.first.WP7's UI is not efficiently designed. Big tiles require more scrolling. The right column of the home screen is wasted on an arrow. What's the point of a large screen if the right column is taken up for blank space? WP7 has too much writing in open apps. I'd rather see usable content. WP7 is dead on arrival.
I agree with SE CEO that Android is better than WP7. You are in the right track, just produced a SE Smartphone with good camera and longer battery life and SE phone will become the best.
if they do go for WP7, they should name it xperia x3 and not rebrand it with another stupid name... the xperia name is diluted as is.
He's falling into the same thing once again. They once failed to take action against the iPhone when it launched 4 years ago. They under estimated the iPhone back then and now, they're under estimating WP's potential.
I know android is better cuz it lags more,need to be reset everyday ,you never get updates on time and u have a fragmentation problem with app.
