The WiFi Bug is not WP7's Only Problem

Only 40,000 US sales?

The WiFi Bug is not WP7's Only Problem
 
 

If you're mulling over the purchase of a new Windows Phone 7 device, you should know that some issues have cropped up since the platform's launch in October. Today BGR reports that a WiFi bug has been spotted in the Venue Pro. This glitch makes it unable to connect through a secure WiFi network.

The HTC HD7 may suffer from the same problem. Some chatter hints that hidden WiFi networks may be to blame. The story is still developing, but this glitch is not the first major problem to hit Windows Phone 7. Just yesterday AT&T reps warned customers and employees NOT to install microSD cards on the Samsung Focus.

WP7 treats SD cards as fixed drives, so sudden removal is a bad idea. However, this issue seems to stop the phone from recognizing the card at all. A fix is presumably incoming, but until that happens Focus owners have no recourse for additional storage space.

Bugs like that are a pain in the butt, but they are less annoying than not being able to buy a phone at all. The HTC HD7 has apparently sold out across the United States. That may speak more to a supply issue than it does to WP7's popularity, though.

Early (and possibly quite inaccurate) reports place the opening-day sales for Windows Phone 7 at a mere 40,000. This is after Microsoft apparently spent half a billion on advertising. Again- these numbers are rough and not official.

Sales in Europe are said to be "brisk" and "better than expected", which manages to sound sort-of good and sort-of bad at the same time.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
