When facing his government duties, Sir Winston Churchill said once: “Criticism is as necessary as pain; it reminds us that something is not going well and needs attention.”
More than a mere critical opinion or a different point of view, facts can be a much louder or stronger criticism. As such, it should probably be paid, therefore, more attention.
And for the moment, Sony Ericsson’s decision to not introduce smartphones with Windows Phone 7 is a fact.
There has been a lot of opinions back and forth, for and against Microsoft’s phone operating system… but so far, besides it’s poor performance in sales (as far as we have known), we have not seen a harder one.
If the fourth largest worldwide handset manufacturer says “no”, this is a serious warning to Ballmer’s boys. Especially if they have androids there, as reported in the link above.
Too many pain symptoms to avoid facing them, we believe.
