Default T-Mobile Satisfied with Windows Phone 7 Sales

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/microsoftpri0/2014098629_azurenowhas31000customers.html' target='_blank'>http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/ht...0customers.html</a><br /><br /></div><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1296741947.usr681.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>It seems that recently the press has really enjoyed trying to understand the impact (or lack thereof) that Windows Phone has had on the marketplace. Yahoo Finance recently published an <a href="http://finance.yahoo.com/news/Survey-Why-Arent-The-Crowds-paidcontent-1301991073.html?x=0&amp;.v=1" target="_blank">article</a> asking "Why Aren't Crowds Flocking to Windows Phones?" LG has come out and <a href="http://www.techspot.com/news/41987-lg-windows-phone-7-push-wasnt-what-everyone-expected.html" target="_blank">said</a> they are slightly disappointed with sales, even while&nbsp;<a href="http://www.techspot.com/news/42092-deutsche-telekom-windows-phone-7-sold-excellently.html" target="_blank">Deutsche Telekom</a>&nbsp; and now T-Mobile US&nbsp;have come out and said that WP7 is "doing well". So I guess the point is that we really won't know for a while whether or not WP7 will be able to make a real stand against Android and iOS. Regardless, 2011 will be an interesting year for mobile.</p>

Actually I do believe that sales for WP7 are "satisfactory". But it won't last long. Hard core windows mobile/phone, just like me, got their device, there's not much press about "latest and greatest" OS from MS. And what ever happened to the update, that I keep hearing about?
Bottom line: MS playing catch up game as usual, When competition, s.a. Apple and Android already introduced video calling on their devices, Apple working on payment system, MS still straggles with copy/paste and forget about multitasking! That's like couple years behind. I did have high hopes for WP7, now I can say, I am very disappointed!

Microsoft will cruise along until Gen 2 hardware gets here...

Hopefully, it will have a front facing camera with the appropriate APIs.

Video calling is a feature that will drive sales in the retail market. Not dual core or what ever MHz processor. All the consumer wants is can it run smoothly and do what everyone is talking about.

Nokia needs to place priority on helping Microsoft integrate video calling into the OS.
