Graphics, User Interfaces Ever since I bought my HTC HD7 way back in October 2010, I have been hooked on Windows Phone. Without even being able to test-drive the new operating system (The Netherlands didn't get Windows Phone 7 until a year later), I imported the HD7 from the US - the minimalist, stark, clean, flat, and textual interface spoke to me, and I just knew I would like it. And like it, I did.

No, he's arguing that mobile UIs do contain what we usually think of as "windows, icons, menus" except the windows are full screen. It's the same as OS X's full screen mode, which makes a window chromeless and take over a screen.

I'd also argue that cards *are* indeed windows: you could even open more than one card per app in webOS.

You are right in the sense that each screen in a touch app is a view, but so is the window content in a desktop app. It's really the same technology, but with a slightly different presentation and marketed to sound like it's new ... almost like cloud computing.
