    Question is, does anyone really care anymore about Windows mobile 7. Microsoft have clearly shown lack of support and lack of ideas for the platform.

    True they seem to put the odd advert on tv but it does end feeling like the only differentiators they are selling are office and xbox - nether of which I can see being big pulls...

    How so?

    The dev ecosystem is by far and away the most pleasurable, the major shortcoming is the restriction on the API, but they are addressing that by almost trippling the number in Mango. They are also putting a lot of help and work into the dev tooling and reminding us devs about this. Makes me feel almost guilty I've never written a commercial app for it, nor do I have any intention too, at present most mobile apps are assumed to be poorly written hard to maintain throw away things...... (rants about 80% of developers been useless)

    The ideas, well pretty much all they've got is Metro UI, which is quite simply so obvious it makes you wonder why you've not been doing it yourself, its kinda anti-glass effect, all the emphasis is on the information and which is important or wanted and which isn't.

    games wise they are easily beating android, but quite a long way behind iOS. However sometimes its the velocity that is important, and they certainly have that ahead of anyone else, what set iOS4 appart from 3? What set Andriod 2.2 from 2.1?

    They are also been quite open with the demos and new features you have to admit that on their tests their web browser is bloody impressive, easily better than iOS and possibly better than any andriod offerings.

    I wouldn't write it off, I wouldn't say they are not investing in it either. But I wouldn't start developing apps exclusively on their platform any time soon either.
