Info World: “No caveats now: Windows Phone 7 is a waste of time and money. It’s a platform that no carrier, device maker, developer, or user should bother with. Microsoft should kill it before it ships and admit that it’s out of the mobile game for good. It is supposed to ship around Christmas 2010, but anyone who gets one will prefer a lump of coal. I really mean that.”
If it has any remnants of the old Windows Mobile UI, or KIN for that matter, it’s a non starter. Hopefully it’s not too KIN like, allows third-party apps, and has an app store for developers day one. That will at least give it a chance.
