So everyone was pretty fine with Microsoft’s mobile operating system being called “Windows Mobile.” In fact, it made sense. However, Windows Mobile has become a bloated operating system and it was about time Microsoft let it go. Their new mobile operating system looks good so far. In fact, their new operating system looks gorgeous, with a user interface that blows the iPhone’s clear out of the water.
I, however, have to take an issue with the name Microsoft chose for the new OS. Windows Phone 7 Series? It’s like a committee slapped the name together. Heck, I won’t even be surprised if that’s exactly what happened.
Anyway, it looks like Microsoft’s finally trying to clean up the new OS’s name. In a tweet from Windows Phone’s official account, the Windows Phone team said:
Tis the season for Series finales. We’ve got one too – dropping the ‘Series’ and keeping the ‘Windows Phone 7.’ Done.
Again, I must say it’s about time. The old name was clunky and, well, annoying. Windows Phone 7. Mmmmm. Also, hopefully this isn’t an April Fool’s Joke.
