Few Thoughts on Windows Phone 8
I have played with Windows Phone up to Version 7.5 ,and found a lots of restrictions ,Windows Phone 8 hopefully would be the same in case of its closed nature. It is too early to predict the future of Windows Phone 8 ,but the freedom you get on Android and the excitement you get on iPhone won’t be there ,I guess.
Tail Piece :
Windows Phone 8 may be good for masses ,it is simple to use ,number of options are minimal ,pretty easy configurations and the hardware specs of Lumia 920 seems good . But at a point of hi tech users ,Winodws need to innovate a lot ,Nokia can have only minimum effects on its eco system by adding some good hardware ,and Nokia’s services like Maps, Free Navigation etc. In the raise of Andoroid phones and Apple Phones with iOS ,it is very challenging to face them with a bit of hardware advancements .
