Microsoft I Want A Zune Phone
Well I never thought I would be a making a blog post praising the ZUNE. A year ago when the Zune 1 was launched it was bashed left and right by everyone. With the release of Zune 2 Microsoft has received nothing but praise. And as usual TechCrunch had the only ZUNE bashing post, talk about bias. There are a number of things Microsoft did right. Firstly they have been keenly listening to customer feedback they remodeled and redesigned the hardware and the software from scratch and the best part is, the old Zune 1 will have support for most of the new features introduced in the Zune 2 unlike Apple which has a notorious habit of dropping support for older hardware and encouraging its users to buy it newer offerings. Also they are offering DRM free music on their online store. I have given up on Nokia to come up with a iPhone Killer. Microsoft could easily come up with a Touch Screen phone to beat the iPhone.
- They have the technology and resources.
- They can learn from all the mistakes that Apple Seems to be making with the iPhone.
- The Windows Mobile Marketplace is already well established.
- Developers will find making native application far easier for a windows mobile.
