Dell adding to Microsoft WP7 Troubles

Daniel Eran Dilger at Roughly Drafted has a good analysis of the market position of WP7. A four-word summary – WP7 is in trouble.

And partners like Dell are adding to WP7’s troubles. It is a good read. Check it out.

WP7 faces all kinds of troubles
* facing a leader (Apple) that has massive momentum and other well-entrenched competitors (Android)
* starting from a zero installed base (new Apps to be developed)
* lack of distinguishing features

and burdened with an unattractive UI. The phone looks like a
chewing gum.
