MG Siegler on why Windows Phone hasn’t taken off:
Two to three years in the hole, the only way Windows Phone can win the market now is to make a product that is leaps and bounds better than what’s out there. They need something that’s an iPhone-in-2007 type product. The product they have, while good, isn’t that.
That’s actually the best explanation I have seen as to why a seemingly better-than-Android OS hasn’t taken off in the market — they were just too late and now they need a game changer to get back in it.
