Microsoft Holds Mock Funeral For iPhone

Microsoft is betting that it’s Windows Phone 7 is going be to a hit. They even held a mock funeral for the iPhone and Blackberry. They had better have something great with the new release, coming out late in the game. I don’t like the iPhone (my wife does), I love Android, and I don’t miss my older WinMo 6.0 phone. I like Windows Mobile and my Dell Axim (non-phone), but it is really dated. Let’s hope Microsoft can make this a hit, and not with a lot of hype. I like REAL, hands-on improvements, not a bunch of rhetoric and empty promises.

Well, we can say that the folks from Redmond definitely have a morbid sense of humor. In celebration of the release to manufacturing (RTM) of Windows Phone 7, Microsoft held a mock funeral for two of the stars of the smartphone community: the Apple iPhone and RIM’s BlackBerry.
