Microsoft Microsoft's response to Apple's win is probably the most cringeworthy of all. Blatantly admitting Windows Phone can't make a dent in the market on merit, but instead requires the court room to do so, Bill Cox, senior director of Windows Phone marketing communications, said: "Windows Phone is looking gooooood right now." Nauseating.

But you have to admit that if you take the latest Android and iOS and put them side by side they DO look a heck of a lot alike. And most of the people I know that bought an Android phone, including members of my family, bought them because they are cheap while still working a lot like the iPhone. And as much as I can't stand Metro even I have to admit that nobody is gonna mistake that for iOS!

So while I don't really have a horse in this race, I'm sticking with my dumbphone because I have a nice EEE and WiFi is everywhere here, I can see why a layperson would sit the two side by side and have trouble telling whose is what.

Personally I hope this brings some actual innovation to the field as I think ALL the current mobile UIs suck in various degrees and I'd love to see someone come out with something better.
