Summary: Phones with Windows on them are unable to cope with contemporary software and games
THE mobile ambitions of Microsoft have been long dead and this new blog post titled “Windows Phones Fragmentation: Nightmare For Developers” reveals anothwe report which says even Microsoft Skype won’t run on Microsoft’s mobile platform in some cases:
Putting the squeeze on those hardware specifications has lead to several more app casualties on Microsoft’s ever-growing mobile platform. Unfortunately, it includes one of mobile gaming’s biggest hitters: Angry Birds. We gave installation a go on our own Lumia 610 and were met with the unfortunate message seen above. According to WindowsPhoneApps Spanish, it’s not the only one affected by the reduction in RAM on these lower-priced smartphones. PES 2012 won’t run on the lower-specced smartphone, while videocall app Tango also joins its rival Skype on the no-go list.
Priceless! So Microsoft’s products (by association) are so weak that they are unable to run the company’s own software. Sounds like a Vista. █
