MS have completely missed the boat on this and really should consider just leaving this space altogether.
Really? The consumer smartphone market is barely 3 years old (see iPhone's release in 2007). And native Office and Exchange integration alone will give it a leg up with enterprise. It'll be an uphill climb, sure, but missed the boat? The Xbox was even later to the videogame...game (or, it could go the way of the Zune players, but let's wait and see first, eh?).
As DB and greggy point out this has been discussed at length in various demos and previews and it does indeed look and smell like turd of the unpolished kind.
In what way? That certainly isn't the impression I've gotten from the videos I've watched, and previews I've read. Most have been cautiously favourable (flash, copy and paste and developer app support being the main wait-and-see's).
Anyone going to take the plunge or wait it out a bit ?
I'm considering taking the plunge, but I'll decide after my current contract expires in a couple of months.
