Windows Phone Scores High in Readers’ Choice Awards

With all the doom and gloom stories about Microsoft, you’d think everyone hated Windows Phone 7. Kind of surprisingly, it turns out the 8 month old operating system has scored quite highly in PC Magazine’s Readers’ Choice Awards. The Samsung Focus even beat out the Apple iPhone 4 for the top spot as best smartphone on the AT&T network with an overall score of 8.7 versus the iPhone’s 8.4. The only other smartphone that got such a high overall score was the Verizon iPhone with the same 8.7. Windows Phone as a platform came in second place with an overall score of 8.1 just underneath Apple iOS’s score of 8.4 and a couple points ahead of Google Android’s score of 7.9. It would seem that at least in terms of PC Magazine’s readership that people are quite satisfied with Windows Phone. Only time will tell if that satisfaction can be maintained over the long run and of course translated to better sales.
