Handle9:MikeB4:Handle9:MikeB4: The App problem is going away
Your evidence please?
More and more Apps are appearing and there has been initiatives discussed by MSFT to address the App problem.
It all seems too little too late. The biggest problem is, that given that Windows Phone is so far behind. The market is quite mature, is that there really is no compelling reason to choose Windows Phone if you are embedded in another ecosystem. It has a different UI but what does it offer that is truly different?
Familiarity, eventually. A lot of people who work with windows programs and laptops every day and who use Android or Apple phones now would likely be willing to move to a Windows phone if it was a good experience, integrated seamlessly with their Windows OS experience on other devices and as long as the price was similar to mid range Androids. If Microsoft can stick with it (and losses) long enough to get the software they should do better than fine. They could take back a big market share.
Microsoft has been a bit slow off the mark but they're doing some really interesting things in hardware and software now and their 'one OS' for everything idea is brilliant.
