Those boys from Redmond can be really mean when they put their minds to it. Kevin Turner, Microsoft's COO, recently gave a keynote at the Worldwide Partner Conference in Washington, DC. In it, he said "It looks like the iPhone 4 might be their Vista, and I'm okay with that,". Turner went on to promise that Windows Phone 7 devices won't drop calls if they are held in the "wrong" way.

Computerworld reports that Turner called Microsoft "back in the game". Although they've missed a generation (or two) and made at least one major mistake themselves (the Kin) Microsoft isn't ready to throw in the towel just yet. Apple's goof is proof that they are not unbeatable.

Although I feel comparing Vista to iPhone 4 is a little unfair. The new iPhone is gorgeous, advanced, feature-packed and crippled by one disfiguring physical flaw. Vista just sucked out loud in about every way possible.
