Yea.. as if the iphone and Android are just going to be stagnant while MS makes improvements lol. Text to speech and voice recognition? Message integration? 30 fps web browsing? Im not going to be funny this time but you do realize most if not all of this Android already does right? Not to mention Ice Cream Sandwich is coming this year and the implementation of full NFC technology.. thats already present in the Nexus.

Re: WP7 Mango (WP 7.1) 500+ features press release today !

The big news is that WP7 will have many features that iOS/Android already have yes, but they also integrate them in a much more user friendly way. Also many features weren't yet mentioned today, so it will be interesting to see the rest come out slowly over the coming weeks, not to mention new hardware which is always nice. NFC was already rumored to be coming as well so I would expect to see that official in the near future also.

Either way, Android is nice, has it's pros and cons, like all things, but I think MS is doing things pretty well considering they are starting from behind, they are quickly catching up and in some ways IMO surpassing the competition in terms of useability. You have to think from the common consumers perspective not just from the techie, power-user vantage, we have different wants and needs often times vs. what the average consumer does.

I for one, think having several good choices in the market is for the best and drives competition among each other, the very spirit and intent of the free market society we hope to embody. I know people have their favorites and always try to one-up the other guy, but you can't say that WP7 isn't shaping up to be a major player anymore, regardless if it will eventually be #1, 2, 3 or whatever in market share.

Haters gonna hate.

Dude... This is a member of the community sharing something with the community. If it means something to you then good... If you are just trolling being a fanboi... You are just making yourself look bad and threatened.

Does Android pay your bills or something?

Existing hardware isn't changing. LOL.
Yeah... MS has set up new requirements and has a new list of hardware partners.
Including Nokia and qualcom which will release the next gen WP7 phone.

Re: WP7 Mango (WP 7.1) 500+ features press release today !

Yeah... I wouldn't begin the count down just yet. Microsoft has alot of money to throw away and they usually don't hit the nail on the head on their first swing... But sometimes they hit the nail on the second swing and drive it ALL the way in... Think XBOX. They are far from taking the number one spot from Android... But 3rd place is quite comfortable. Especially for a branch of their business.
