    Missing the boat...

    The messaging surrounding the annoucement of WP 8 was just horrible!

    The marketing departments of Microsoft and Nokia were clearly not communicating with each other, or MSFT chose not to communicate.

    Folks who own devices which do not support the new hardware features of WP 8 should not be concerned about a thing, yet the initial messaging was somehow indicating to them that they will be missing the boat.

    Perception is everything, and MSFT and NOK did miss the boat on this one.

    • Yes, it was badly bungled. That's the pattern with these two companies though. Tremendous potential being squandered. Things like SkyDrive would be great exclusives for WP phones, but instead Microsoft chose to open it up to EVERYone, and it's FREE. You can't say Microsoft is making a fortune selling it like Apple does with paid iCloud accounts. I have SkyDrive on my iPhone, and for simple cloud storage and access of files it's superb. Plus you can get a link to anything stored on SkyDrive and use that link to give access to other people, either for individual files or for entire folders. IMHO it should have been kept as an exclusive feature for WP handsets.
