That did not take long. We all know how other people invent features that Apple then steals, and a few months later everyone believes Apple is actually the only one with the technology, and everyone else are bad copy cats.
It has just happened with the camera feature in Windows Phone 7, with the IBNLive reporter, who attended the Indian launch of Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, complained that Windows Phone lacked a good way of getting to the camera from the lock screen.
What is missing is the direct access to the camera right from the lock screen as in the iPhone 4S. This feature is also expected in the forthcoming Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).
How long before reporters start complaining Windows Phone 7 users cant send text messages by voice? The above is just another example of the reason why Microsoft and Windows Phone 7 does not get the credit for features which are in fact better implemented. I think its time for Microsoft to do some (very loud) comparative advertising.
Thanks bhogal for the tip.
