Windows Fascinating, this. As a Windows Phone 7 user, I can attest that it is every bit as good as iOS and Android - heck, in my experience, it is more polished, more consistent, smoother, and faster than either of those two. Yet, despite raving reviews and glowing user comments all over the web, Windows Phone 7 simply isn't selling. Former Windows Phone 7 general manager Charlie Kindel believes it's because neither carriers nor device makers like the control Microsoft exerts over the platform.

I want to add also, that I think, the goal of WP7 was to make a different UI. Not a better UI, but a different one. MS succeeded in that, so they got love from some gadget lovers who was waiting for something new and distinguishably different. But the majority of users wanted something useful and familiar and they were not appreciated efforts.
