Reasons why Windows Phone 7 can beat Android

Windows Phone 7 or Win 7 is the latest operating system  introduced by Microsoft in the market, though no phone operating on it has been launched in India but the wait is worth it.
Though Windows have already made a big fault by releasing it so late because Android has taken a strong grip in Mobile phone market, it would be quite a challenge for Microsoft to get its loyal smartphone users back.
Sure Android is a good OS but there certain features in the new Windows Phone 7 that might compel potential smartphone buyers to get a move on from android and try something else.
Here are five reason why Windows phone 7 can compete with Android OS…
Windows Phone 7 

1. Tiles Layout
Interesting but very practically designed, the new Windows Phone 7 OS has no icons in its layout like Android but offers Tiles. So how are they different? Well they could save you a lot of time and generate updates without opening the application.
All your favorite social network updates, news updates, score updates and much would be displayed directly on the homescreen with this feature, therefore it will save you a lot of time and make things more organized.

2. Hubs Features

So you can create several hubs like Office hub, friends hub etc. and share without limits.

3. Lots of Apps, Dedicated Apps Store

Though this is not something you might have not really heard in these months since the most popular apps store is of Apple followed by Android but hang on! Microsoft has decided to offer its app store not in primitive stage but in a completely develop stage which means there are not just a few but several hundred apps which might take you upto 6 months to use and test.
A lot of free games are also included that supporting Xbox Live Integration.

4. Hell lot of Xbox Games

Did you get pretty excited after reading Games word in the last sentence and its Xbox Live Integration the don’t get surprise, i could not believe it when i heard it first either but this seems to be true.
Windows Phone 7 OS has the capability and hardware to run Xbox games and also offers multiplayer support. Though the quality of games is still under doubt, but if the doubt comes out to be negative then no phone OS would stand a chance against Win Phone 7.

5. Great App world for developers

Microsoft is hiring! yes, they are planning to hire quality developers for their application, this would offer great earning and learning opportunity to thousands of application developers.
They have also provided privileges to users to add their applications and once its tested upon quality and approved, the developers can list the app on their apps marketplace and assign it desired price.
