Will Windows Phone 7 lose the balance of Windows mobile users? I am a loyal, almost two decades long, windows mobile user. I am seriously considering however whether I should upgrade my existing WM6.5 Smartphone to a Windows Mobile 7. One of the reasons is that Windows Mobile appears to be seriously in decline, only following up the fast developing opposition, rather than leading the market. The other main issue I have is that I have spent many hundreds to thousands of dollars on WM applications, which, in the main, I have managed to move across to new Smartphones, with upgrades to the WM operating system. None of those applications will work on WM7. Accordingly I am seriously considering purchasing an Android phone, as that appears to be where all the momentum is, and I wonder whether Microsoft will ever catch up. Has Microsoft has “missed the boat” by losing what was their core, business consumer oriented, user group on earlier WM devices, by not allowing them to transport their applications and other software to the WM7 OS? That makes it mucheasier for such a user to switch Operating Systems.
