For people who consider the words of Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder and geek extraordinaire, as law, you might want to know what “the Woz” thinks of Windows Phone devices in comparison to Android phones and the iPhones. Upon announcing to the world via his Twitter account that he has picked up the flagship Nokia Lumia 900 phone, Wozniak apparently had nice things to say about the $99.99 device.
Talking to A New Domain, Wozniak professed his love for the Windows phone and how he’d prefer it over Android phones “just for looks and beauty”. He said it was shocking to see how apps appear on the phone’s screen and how they are “much more beautiful than the same apps on [...]
When Gavin Kim joined Microsoft to become the GM of Marketing for Windows Phone, big expectations were set from the get go.

Nokia is attempting to carve out a niche for itself in the US, a market in which it has been largely irrelevant for the last few years.

Nokia’s flagship device, the Lumia 900 smartphone, is set to hit AT&T stores on April 8. After being out of the limelight for so long, does the Lumia 900 offer enough incentives for buyers to put Nokia – and to a certain extent, Microsoft – back on the smartphone map in the US and the rest of the world?
It’s quite telling how both companies are craving to have a bonafide hit on their hands as the Nokia Lumia 900 is positioned at a competitive $100 price point with a two-year contract.
