Major Fail: Now even Microsoft is calling Windows Phone 7 Windows Mobile


When carriers and Microsoft partners mistakenly call Windows Phone Windows Mobile we always say Microsoft should be a lot more involved in their promotions.

However ignorance can hardly explain why Microsoft Studios missed the memo, and decided to flash back to 2009 with their new initiative – Windows Mobile Wednesdays, “which will highlight a Windows Mobile game we love!”

As a commenter on the page said “Way to go with associating “Windows Phone” with the dead ‘n buried “Windows Mobile“.”

We could not have said it better…

Update: The page has now been pulled, but even better would be to avoid such silly branding issues in the first instance.
