Microsoft's top mobile-phone executive Terry Myerson has reportedly stated that its Windows Phone operating system has an opportunity to lure away Apple and Google users because it offers a more exciting and smoother experience. It appears that Myerson is desperately trying to make waves for their Windows phone which currently sits in last place. Myerson's tactic however is mirroring the very same one deployed by both BlackBerry's CEO Heins and Nokia's CEO Elop weeks earlier, so he can't even be original on that point. Cheap shots such as those made recently just make these CEO's out to be clowns.
Terry Myerson, vice president of the Windows Phone division, at a conference in New York stated that "Apple's iOS software is "boring," with icons across the bottom that offer little information or flexibility."
Microsoft is seeking to make inroads with Windows Phone to take advantage of rising demand for devices. The Redmond, Washington-based software maker had 2.6 percent of the smartphone operating system market in the fourth quarter, according to research firm IDC, up from 1.5 percent in the same period the prior year. Apple's iOS stats stand at 21 percent.
Companies prove their product's value with hard sales in hand, not with loud bravado.
