It is a known fact that Microsoft has been working extremely hard on its upcoming Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system to regain its competitiveness in the mobile space. And while hands-on reports about the new OS has generally been favourable, Microsoft is so convinced about WP7’s capabilities that it marked the platform’s RTM date with an elaborate ‘funeral’ to proclaim the death of the iPhone.
But will Windows Phone 7 be the real game changer and iPhone-killer that the world is waiting for? Apparently, Microsoft is fully convinced that its mobile OS is fully capable of fulfilling that role well, because it has gone all out to mark the OS’s RTM status by hosting an elaborate ‘funeral’ for the iPhone. Normally, we would make a few comments about such a stunt, but for once, we decided to let Microsoft have their day and have the pictures do the talking.
