Windows Phone, The Most Stable Smartphone OS.

Though I agree with the title, I’m not the one who said it. Matthew Miller, a ZDnet blogger who writes on Smartphones and Cell Phones category has shared his experience with different smartphones in the past. Why bother about his opinion? Because, Matthew Miller started using a Pilot 1000 in 1997 and has been writing news, reviews, and opinion pieces ever since on mobile phones in general and smartphones too. His summary of his post says it all,

Windows Phone 7 may not be flying off the shelves, but in my extensive experience the platform is the most stable and reliable out there. I recommend that you at least give the platform a try because it is NOTHING like Windows Mobile and the Microsoft name does not kill the experience.

This is not a research study, but still an extensive research on his own personal expereinces.  His post was more about stability of the operating system rather than features. He writes on Windows Phone as follows,

Zero! That is how many times I have seen a reset on ANY Windows Phone 7 device that I have been using in over a year. During that time I have used at least six WP7 devices on all four wireless carriers. This includes running the early tech preview on the first WP7 device all the way through the latest RTM version of Mango I have on my HTC HD7. I even have the Dell Venue Pro, with a 32GB microSD card in it, that has been rock solid stable even though I have read a number of reports of issues with that device. I don’t know if I have just been blessed with an uncanny knack for using stable WP7 devices, but from what I read online there are many more customers just as pleased as I am with the stability of Windows Phone 7.

He also shared his opinion on stability of iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Symbian and even Palm OS. Its good to see more and more people are realizing the potential of Windows Phones. May be, Brandon Watson’s attempt in the recent times to lure Internet celebrties with Windows Phones may help change the perception on Windows Phones and Microsoft in general when they share their experiences.
