re: Verizon To Back Windows Phone 8, Sprint Undecided
Verizon made a big mistake in waiting about 18 months to add newer phones to their Windows 7 or 7.5 lineup. The Trophy was a good phone to start with, but was limited by its screen size. Our business of about 40 users left Verizon because Verizon had no plans going forward for Windows phones that they would discuss with us, and began pushing iPhone4, which was not acceptable for our needs; costs, security, applications, and otherwise. Not wanting to wait and needing to leave the Blackberry platform, we switched to AT&T and upgraded to Samsung Focus S and now Lumia 900. When Verizon finally joins the rest of the Windows world we might consider using both VZ and AT&T depending upon coverage areas that are more favorable for only 1 carrier. The Windows phone has been excellent for us, and Windows 8 phones and tablets will be even better. Great integration between devices, services, and Office Applications. Too bad VZ stuck it to the consumer and Microsoft for so long.
