Interaction Awards Winner 2012 : Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango)




Quote:
Microsoft's Windows Phone 7.5 operating system, also known as Mango, has already been praised for its design by many critics. Now the OS has gotten an award specifically to honor its interactive design features. Next (a Microsoft blog) reports that last week, Windows Phone received the Connecting Award at the first annual Interaction Awards, run by the Interaction Design Association.

Over 300 products from all over the world were submitted for these new awards, which were then judged by an international panel of experts in design; the final 26 winners included Windows Phone 7.5. The above video shows some of the elements that helped to give Windows Phone 7.5 the award, including the Metro interface, the Start screen and how Windows Phone 7.5 handles groups.

I've used a WP7....and I've actually had one. Main problem - App support. WP7 is fast though...and it's not superior hardware or anything. On systems with same hardware, it's just much more fluid than the competition. Customization isn't too great but it really doesn't need to be. Everything is accessible in a convenient, simple way...but really lacking in app-support, as stated earlier.

This is true,the App Market need to mature more,there are still a range of applications not supported.

They good news is that it will eventually get there smile.gif
