Windows Phone 7 Review Verdict by Walt Mossberg is not Positive
 
 

The first Windows Phone 7 devices go on sale today (Oct. 21) in Europe. Walt Mossberg, possibly the most famous gadget reviewer, just published a review of Windows Phone 7. His headline for the review is already telling that he is not too enthusiastic about Microsoft's new mobile operating system. "Microsoft's New Windows Phone 7: Novel But Lacking."


Mr. Mossberg has been testing the Samsung Focus on AT&T and the HTC HD7 on T-Mobile. He focused in his review on the new Windows Phone 7 operating system and not on the phone hardware. He definitely likes the novel user interface of Windows Phone 7. He says though that Microsoft left out important features to be able to compete with the iPhone and Android phone that include copy and paste, visual voicemail, multitasking of third-party apps, and the ability to do video calling and to use the phone to connect other devices to the Internet.

Additionally the Windows Phone 7 app store is only offering 1,000 compared to the 300,000 the iPhone app store is offering today.

At the end Walt Mossberg is not recommending the Windows Phone 7 phones. He sees value only for Xbox Live gamers and Microsoft SharePoint users. Read the full review on the Wall Street Journal. More Windows Phone 7 Reviews.

I still think Microsoft will have a great sales start with Windows Phone 7, because of the attractive user interface. Microsoft just needs to keep the ball rolling and release a major feature update to Windows Phone 7 in Spring 2011 to keep up the momemtum.
