Arrow Disappointed by Microsoft's CES Keynote?

I hope tomorrow is better for them but as far as right now.. I'm very disappointed. What are your thoughts?

Here's a link.

Re: Disappointed by Microsoft's CES Keynote?

They are missing out on a lot of potential customers (Sprint/Verizon) that may be looking for a new phone experience. The improvements are definately good, still I think it is something that should be done, not bragged about. If people were upset about copy/paste or game speed loading time they would not stick around at all. So Thats technically an update but to anyone after Feb 17(WMC) has a WP7 they wouldn't know about it. Finish the rollout in U.S. and other countries where language support would be nice, and Marketplace. A person buys a phone for the way that syncs into their lives, the usefullness, all under a carrier that provides consistant coverage where they LIVE THEIR LIVES. I can buy a Windows Phone 7 now, but where I live my best coverage is with Sprint, or Verizon. "9 out 10" AT&T customers said they would recommend it is foolishness. Better would be to say "in U.S. alone, on all 4 Major carriers customers said they would recommend this phone and loved the experience."

Re: Disappointed by Microsoft's CES Keynote?

That is kind of a shocker but, let's wait till Sprint and Verizon show off at CES. If there is no WP7 on their tables...guess what ?

Edit: We'll should know what Verizon has on their table soon (Verizon's keynote speach is at 8:30 this morning...Man !!! I wish I could be at CES! !!!!)

Nothing really. We know Verizon has the trophy. Sprint has the 7 pro. I am a bit disappointed but every CES disappoints me from Microsoft. MWC is always where Microsoft shines

They shined at MWC last year because they were going to give us our first solid in depth look at wp7 and devices. They also told us what they would be showing as well. This year at CES it seems like (as far as cdma phones/wp7 updates) everything has become even more confusing. Like i said in my other post, i was looking forward to a cdma wp7 device this month. I'm kind of disappointed about the lack of any tangible wp7 information.

Re: Disappointed by Microsoft's CES Keynote?

"June" The article states. This would not be a huge issue for me if there was WM update to allow my TP2 to run smooth until WP7 debued on Sprint/Verizon. At least with a date that late we could see other manufactures CDMA handsets for more options.

Re: Disappointed by Microsoft's CES Keynote?


I sure hope they will be carrying second generation phones and not the trophy or hd7. If they dont at least match the powerful phones android has lined up for the 1st & 2nd quarters then wp7 wont be so appealing. Microsoft is already behind in apps/ hardware/carrier support/os features.. They need to at least pick up on the hardware front. Please don't suffer the same problems that palm and webos had.
