Windows Phone 7 Looks Bad in Early Reviews

EUC with HCI: Why It Matters

Windows Phone 7 has been seeded to developers for an early look at how the software will work. And already, there is a lot to dislike. Unlike the platform's biggest multitouchscreen competitors -- Apple iOS 4 and Android 2.2 -- Windows Phone 7 lacks multitasking and copy/paste functionality.

For CIOs who are constantly pressured by top management to come up with improved smartphone solutions, Windows Phone 7's omissions might actually make the decision process a little easier. The competition is more capable than this new platform, other options have a proven pedigree of success, and Microsoft has not proven that it has a real vision for success. Given the software's shortcomings, you might want to cross Windows Phone 7 off your smartphone list already.
