How Do You Feel About Windows Phone? Rob Jackson and Sascha Pallenberg Face Off

Whether or not Windows Phone will succeed at its lofty goal of of becoming a viable third platform in 2012 remains to be seen, but last week at CES Sascha Pallenberg of NetbookNews and Rob Jackson of Phandroid decided to have a go at it. It’s a highly entertaining argument that begs the question, how do you feel about Windows Phone so far?

One of the points made in the argument is that Nokia is too little too late and is only appealing to feature phone users, but I feel like that’s an oversimplification of what the operating system is capable of doing now and in the future. Instead of having a thousand apps to achieve one goal, Microsoft’s goal is to integrate every useful feature it can think of into its operating system natively. I think that’s a pretty noble goal and one I would like to see succeed.

    The thing I love most about Windows Phone is the perfect line it draws between customizability and a clean interface. Android is almost TOO customizable to the point that it is annoying, and I always found myself wanting more. With Windows Phone I get a clean interface from the get-go, and the OS is just a pleasure to use.
