Windows 8 has a steep learning curve. On the other hand, even a toddler can use an iPad. My relatives who never used a computer and don't speak English can easily use an iPad too. Same for iPhone vs Lumina 920. WP8 is lame!
toddlers can use IPAD because it is a toy meant for toddlers. I am sure at least 80% of the users are teens and toddlers. MSFT surface pro is designed for office and home and for projects in business school. Of course toddlers can also use, that is the beauty of surface pro.
How in trenched? You do not see many 1965 Mustangs on the road today. Popularity will yield to better overall usability overtime everytime. Realize that W8 is already on a larger variety of Nokia phones in a very short time than would have been expected a relatively short time ago. With the growing smartphone worldwide usage increasing, a waste of resources is not remotely a legitimate argument. smartphones are here now and not a fad by any measure. from reviews, it appears Nokia W8 is already edging out ios and Android in several applications. Equal merit will not stand up as easily as W8 is incorporated in applications as outstanding in longevity as Nokia.
Suggest MSFT share holders look at the complimentary work Nokia is doing for W8. February 25 is the.date for the World Mobile Congress in Barcelona Spain. Nokia will present new mobile innovative phones using Microsoft Windows 8. This is in your best interests as desktop to mobile increases. This should be essential for Microsoft growth very soon. The variety is of better quality than the competition, better late than never.
