Windows Phone 7 Series
Gosh, what a let down. Sure it is pretty and has a slick and flashy UI but I personally can't see increased productivity with this. It is also rumoured not to feature multi-tasking which is a huge step backwards, something that has always set previous Pocket PC and Windows Mobile iterations aparts from other mobile OS. I've liked being able to switch from a game of Snails to making a text message to web browsing to planning my next trip, without closing any of these applications.
I hope mobile manufacturers will take note that not everyone wants animations or mobile computers. Sometimes we just want them to work quicker. This is why I always disable animations and effects on any new phones and PC installation.
