We all know by now that Microsoft wants Windows Phone 7 to be the biggest thing ever (or at least successfully compete with the iOS and Android). Yet some developers who have gotten early peeks weren’t too impressed. Now another developer, this one by the name of Justin James, has weighed in.
James recently spoke to a Microsoft employee about Windows Phone 7 for roughly an hour and a half. He came away from the conversation with both positive and negative feelings.
James wrote in a post for TechRepublic, “I really like the platform, and I think there are some good things about it for users and for developers, but I suggest a wait-and-see approach to any kind of development that requires a substantial commitment of resources.”
He then continued, “Sure, you might consider spending a few weekends putting together a cool little game or app and try to be the early winner in the app store, but betting the farm on a Big Application would carry an awful lot of risk until Windows Phone 7 proves that it is a contender.”
So there’s one more opinion to take into consideration. Hopefully we’ll get to see a few additional takes before Windows Phone 7 is launched.
