Microsoft releases Windows Phone 7

  • Forget about iOS, BlackBerry, Android and Symbian! Microsoft wants you to know that it has released the RTM version of Windows Phone 7 - to manufacturers.



    That's right!

    So brace yourself - because it won't be long until millions of Windows Phone 7 devices hit the overcrowded market in various shapes, colors and sizes.

    I know I'm excited (yeah, right)! 



    Are you?

    Well, in any case, Windows Phone 7 is supposedly the most "thoroughly tested" mobile platform the company has ever released.

    I guess that means we won't be experiencing uncontrolled bloat, blue screens of death or nefarious creeping feature syndrome anytime soon.

    No, that will probably take a few years to kick in.

    Besides, one can always hope and anyway, MS spokesperson Terry Myerson insists that Redmond has nearly ten thousand devices running automated tests daily, with over a half million hours of active self-hosting use, over three and a half million hours of stress test passes and eight and a half million hours of fully automated test passes.

    "We've [also] had thousands of independent software vendors and early adopters testing our software and giving us great feedback," Myerson explained in an official blog post. 

    "[So], we are ready."

    Famous last words and you know you've heard them from Microsoft before - Windows Vista, anyone?

    So, I don't know about you, but I'm sure as hell sticking with my Android. Remember, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
