Creator of Dilbert Scott Adams Reveals His Opinions on Windows PhoneAugust 18, 2011 No Comments
Brandon Watson, Director for Windows Phone has been a busy guy. He has been issuing a challenges for people to try Windows Phone and if they accept and don’t enjoy their time with WP7 then he has agreed to donate $1,000 to a charity of their choice. So far he has issued the challenge to ZDNet’s Molly wood, Creator of Dilbert, Scott Adams, Chamillionaire (who accepted but later deleted the evidence when someone offered him an Android device) and most recently Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers.
Scott Adams has taken to his blog to reveal his opinions on Windows Phone 7:
The Windows phone has the best user interface experience, although the onscreen keyboard is problematic just as it is with the other phones I used. The Windows interface is intuitive, simple, and has a liveliness that I find appealing. Voice call quality was good, and battery life seemed good too. I declare it the winner compared to my iPhone 3GS with AT&T and my HTC EVO 3D with Android on the Sprint network.
However, the intangible coolness factor is impossible to ignore. Even the names Microsoft and Windows feel dated. And the home screen of the Windows phone is great from a usability standpoint, but lacks sizzle. I’d be lying if I said that didn’t matter to me.
He also did a rating camparison in different areas for Windows Phone, Android and iPhone with Windows Phone lacking in apps, coolness factor and onscreen keyboard, though all three were rated poorly in onscreen keyboard.
Scott Adams seemed to be won over by Windows Phone. Obviously Windows Phone still needs to improve in a few areas but when you take into account that it hasn’t even been around for a year and it’s already such a major contender in smartphones means a lot.
