Microsoft has learned a good lesson from Android it seems. As a new business strategy ,Microsoft has announced it’s Windows 8.1 Operating system for devices bellow 9 inches screen , is free .
It is an enormous move from Microsoft in the history. Microsoft is known for it’s strict money making policy for long time .But the model of giving something free has been adopted after a learning curve,I guess .

The software giant-Microsoft is about to release the next big thing to the masses on the 26th of October 2012. There are mixed up waves of expectations.People like me are waiting for Windows 8 and some people are eagerly waiting to know more about the RT Tablets with Windows 8 from MS.
Luckily Techcrunch has done a good job by providing us lot of information about the upcoming Surface RT Tablets .
Microsoft continuously fails to understand the concept of mobile computing and the expectations of the users . The Windows Phone is a failure product from the company. No matter how big they are ,they could not get the WP on the top of the market for many years. Likewise now the Tablet concept also seems to be a failure . Microsoft RT Tablets are over sized ,chunky and the Operating system inside is not matured yet. You don’t have enough apps to use in your RT Tablets ,and technically it is hard to get more soon (The software codes of the famous existing apps should be re written for the processor running in the RT Tabs)
Want to know more about the RT Tablets ,just read the full review at Techcrunch
Windows Phone has achieved a remarkable number of apps in it’s application store recently , it is marked as passing 50,000 apps by now . If you are a Windows Phone fan boy(probably hard to find one ) ,you may want to say “hurray” ,but from experts’ point of view ,the number of the apps doesn’t matter anyway.
Reportedly ,more than 6,000 apps are found crappy and already removed from the Windows apps store either by Microsoft or the developers themselves .

Nokia have lost it’s passionate users ,after moving to the Windows Phone . Nokia’s failure of it’s vision made the company to collapse as it is today.

Microsoft have officially acknowledged ,that they are aware of the possible SMS attack ,that can lock the Windows Phone 7.5-Mango due to the flaw in the operating system.
As a Windows Phone user ,you don’t need to panic as it is not a very serious security threat ,the attackers can send you a sms and lock the phone ,that’s all . Microsoft is working faster to bring the firmware update to rectify the matter . The new Firmware update/patch for the windows phone should be available within couple of days and most probably available over the air this time.
The video here demonstrates how an attack can take place .

Nokia adopted Windows Phone as it’s smartphone platform last year officially and ,already two variants from Nokia using Windows Phone 7 Operating System are available in the market.
Nokia Lumia 800 is the first Windows Phone ever from Nokia ,and Nokia have started shipping the second and affordable Windows phone Nokia Lumia 710 .
Windows Phone 7 is the mobile operating system developed by Microsoft ,already there are several key players in the market offering phones with Windows Phone 7 ,like Samsung,HTC . Nokia is quite new to the Windows Phone market .
Most of the people who are favorable to Microsoft report Windows Phone O/S as sleek and fast one ,but as I live with Samsung Galaxy SII that uses Android 2.3(Gingerbread) and I have tested Windows phone 7 with HTC T8697,would predict that Nokia will not overtake Android phones as those are far most ahead of the crappy Windows phones.
