While Apple and Google continue to be the big dogs of the smartphone world, Microsoft continues to lead the resistance with their own Windows Phone 7 platform.
If you’re at all curious about what they’ve come up with, there’s good news: Now you can try Microsoft’s latest Windows Phone 7.5 “Mango” right on your iPhone, no jailbreak required!
OS X Daily reports that Microsoft has created a (rather impressive) new HTML5 demo to show Android and iOS users what life is like on the other side. Just open Mobile Safari and head to Microsoft’s demo site (http://aka.ms/wpdemo) for a hands-on taste of Mango.
Windows Phone 7 is very, very different from the iPhone, and there are both good and bad elements to the platform – but hey, Microsoft deserves some credit here – at least Windows Phone 7 is original, which is more than can be said for certain other platforms…
I won’t spoil the punch with my own observations, though – go try it for yourself (and let us know if you find Mango to be juicy and/or delicious)!
