5 Things iPhone should steal from Windows Phone

Comments (3)

Let's face it - when it comes to mobile there's only two major players. Apple's iOS and Google's Android together dominate the phone market - and anyone who wants to pretend that Windows phone or even old man Blackberry stand a chance are either deluded or working for those companies respective PR departments. But that doesn't that they never have any good ideas.

Whilst I'd hesitate to recommend switching to Windows Mobile for the time being, due to a chronic lack of apps (see here to read me banging on about ecosystems), the Windows 8 mobile operating system does have some good idea. So here's some ideas I'd like to see iOS pinch - so that they can be used by everyone, and not just the contrarian in the room with his weird phone.

    Pretty below average article but ok. Nokia Beamer and Storyteller are actually apps, not part of Windows Phone. Can be done by third party on other platforms but best experience on Windows Phone. App snap is not available on Windows Phone.

    "anyone who wants to pretend that Windows phone or even old man Blackberry stand a chance are either deluded or working for those companies respective PR departments" ... anyone writing a sentence like that is either arrogant or paid by Apple or Google to discredit Windows Phone. And you are full of contradictions. You say there is a lack of apps but what do you want to steal? Apps! And please, stop using the 'lack of apps' excuse. It is old, it is untrue, it is boring! Also, may I remind you that Windows Phone has a 10% share in the big 5 European countries? Apple is around 15%. Only 5% to go. Windows Phone is outselling Apple in a couple of countries already, including Italy. Check you facts!

    This is cool. Except for --- anyone who wants to pretend that Windows phone stand a chance are either deluded. ---- Windows phone has 10% market share in Europe. 5, and considering the fact that these feature you spent your time to blog about are on windows shows that WP n RT has compelling features.

    So i think windows phone has a chance and am not deluded
