Unless you live under a rock, you’ve probably heard of the announcement from Microsoft about Windows Mobile Series 7. It’s already getting rave reviews from the tech-journalists and I think the warm reception that both the Zune interface and Xbox UI have gotten have more or less proven that this is going to be successful. It’s not like this is really new, but more of a maturation of seeds that were planted a while ago.
As a follower of most things tech and as a .NET developer, I can’t say that I’m really surprised. For all the haters out there and all the people that love their iPods, iPads, and iLife, and to the open source town criers the negative nancies and googlebators out there, you’ve missed something. While you were all mouthing away at forums and making your sarcastic comments, slobbering over the latest google lab and overwhelmed with the delicious android pastry excitement, all the while announcing the death of the old blue machine. Something happened.
