6 Things Windows Phone 8 Still Needs to Succeed
Send to Your Kindle
With the release of the Windows Phone 8, Microsoft is hoping to improve its seemingly underdog status against Android and iOS.
Still, it seems that there are a number of things that Microsoft needs to improve on to somehow would the increasing sales of its rivals.
Let us take a look a closer look at these aspects as Time Techland highlights them.
The software is essentially more important than the hardware but it is the actual look of the device that will make the customers want to get it.
Apple’s iPhone is one prime example. Windows Phone 8 has already looked in to this concern, seeing that it supports a dual-core processor with 1280×768 screen resolution.
However, it seems that Microsoft still has so much work to do on their hardware to get the attention and interest of their consumers.
A good marketing campaign is not only a chance to get the phone out there; it can very well be a good way to showcase the best things that it can offer to the consumers.
It can even be a good way to get the people to not purchase their competition’s products.
Verizon’s “iDon’t” ads for Motorola Droid truly stood out as a good campaign for Android.
Microsoft needs to do something better and find a good campaign that will get people talking about the Windows Phone 8.
It seems that Microsoft has made a mistake of not allowing their users pick their own default search engine on their Windows Phones.
Devout users would probably not mind as they have more likely done their searches through Bing.
However, there are many who prefer Google above anything else.
Because of this, non-Microsoft fans will have to have some adjusting to do when they are doing their search engine searches on their phones.
With this new Windows phone, app developers are able to include spoken output to their creations, allowing users to search or use apps with voice commands.
While this might be a very helpful tool, this feature relies entirely on developer support, something that is not really guaranteed.
Plus, considering that most app developers are too into Android and iPhone apps, incorporating such a feature into Windows apps will require so much effort from them.
Cloud-Based Media Services
The iTunes is one of the best things that makes the iPhone a big hit among mobile phone users.
And with the addition of the iCloud, it is made even more alluring. With the iCloud, their music purchases from iTunes will immediately be available to their iPads or iPod Touch.
Android users also are able to do the same with Google Play.
The Windows Phone should have this kind of service.
Verizon Wireless Support
In the United States, the biggest wireless carrier has only offered one Windows Phone device. This was the HTC Trophy way back in early 2011.
Even before the Windows Phone 8 was launched, Verizon has already said that it will support the phone although there are still no clear details.
