... they planned to compete with the iPod with the zune?
i frikkin hate M$. they copy everything. bakas
Neither the iPhone or MS stands a chance against Xperia. http://www.engadget.com/tag... The vid is short but sweet: http://www.engadget.com/200...
I am not trying to be a fan boy here, but do microsoft ever learn? how many times do they have to burn their hands on the hot oven before, they realize that they arent caple of competing with Apples products? hell even Dell & HP tried to compete with their Imac series, and look now? were are the products? trashed and dumped by the consumers. Apple has a strong brand, and a good repetion (how was it spelled?) so does microsoft, but they just seems more "cheap" then apple. Also what would m$ compete with at all. Their already dead Zune? .... jesus come o on, that would only unfend the US consumers intelligence by offering them that. Thats a re-brain storm m$ ...
I smell failure. Sony will easily succeed. But they are known for having the highest quality products while Microft is known for monopolizing computers, forcing Vista on consumers that NO ONE wants and copying EVERYTHING Sony/Apple does.
forcing it on to them like a trojan horse
Don't see that going anywhere. Rule of thumb. Don't try to copy an already well established idea unless you have a "new/better" way of doing it. Apple owns that market share and the ipod share. Come out with a new idea like windows was back in the day. It's not going to give you that big of a piece of pie.
"apple owns that market"? Perhaps someone should let you know that Windows Mobile is a massive part of the proper smartphone market. Apple doesnt have anything for the overall market. SideKick is a great consumer-level product, MS is going to integrate it across its platforms. Is this forum serious? Are you delusional people for real? iphone is a glorified ipod with phone. technically, its a joke. And you say "MS should know better"? Maybe you should get back to us when Apple has an SDK that isnt HTML?
That's what I meant. MS should not try to make an iphone. MS needs to go beyond that and do something innovative, unlike what they did with the zune.
Yeah, I agree with you guys. The Zune Phone... could be totally stupid! But Windows Mobile has some good things going for it. I think Microsoft could go either way with this.
competition is good for all of us, it will lead to better products and lower prices
what the heck thier is no way that microsoft can stand up to apple heck no what are they thinking the PS3 dose better then them
but still its no way that microsoft can even get close to apple no way
mircosoft is already winning
