Microsoft appears to be quite pleased with Apple’s iPhone 4 issues and a company executive has gone on record saying that he’s “okay” with Apple’s troubles. Truth be told, after the Kin disaster Microsoft probably shouldn’t be handing out smartphone advice to anyone, least of all Apple.
During his keynoted at Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference, Microsoft’s COO Kevin Turner blasted Apple over the iPhone 4, but he also managed to shoot himself in the foot.
“It looks like the iPhone 4 might be their Vista, and I’m okay with that,” said Turner. Basically he admitted that Vista was overpriced and broken at launch.
He also told the crowd that Windows Phone 7 handsets will work no matter how you hold them, provided Windows Phone 7 manages to outlive the Kin.
