Windows I wish more people who work or have worked for large technology companies were as open, honest, and excited as Steve Wozniak still gets over new technology and gadgets. He recently bought a Nokia Lumia 900 - and he's loving it. So much so, in fact, that he claims it's better than Android and iOS in many respects.

In many ways. Hardware: you can only get 1 or 1.4 GHz (now also 800 MHz) single core Snapdragon CPUs and 480x800 screens. There isn't a single impressively specced WP7 phone out there, and the low-end is severely unimpressive compared to Android phones at the same price. That makes the WP7 segment of the phone market a sea of mediocrity, and rather expensive compared to Android. Not a single WP7 phone with a decent camera in it.

Software: Microsoft followed Apple's lead in which features they would finish later (but didn't leave out MMS, thankfully). Multi-tasking is still so crippled that their own Skype implementation fails in ways it doesn't on any other platform: it can't run in the background. This will be fixed in WP8, but current phones aren't likely to get that update, meaning they're already obsolete.

I'm pretty sure you still have to use Zune software to 'sync' files between phone and computer as well.

And more.
