I have been using the Windows Phone for 2 weeks now and I have to say, I really like it! The Windows Phone is styled very modern, simple and light weight. Pretty things make me happy and this is a pretty phone. I have already talked about the pretty post-it like, live tiles which is a key custom feature that I love. What I loved most about the phone is the layout of things and how they are displayed. Its almost like they designed it to be more like a notebook or a journal, a digital notebook that is with headers or categories at the top of each page and then just by sliding my finger across it would turn the page. This is a great phone for those of you that still live by writing things down in a notebook, me included.
While I was running around at BlogHer I took some great pictures with the phone and to my surprise it takes video too! Updating to Facebook and Twitter was easy while checking and replying to e-mails was a breeze.
The Windows Phone also has some new features coming out soon and the one i am interested in the most is Groups. If I am organizing a dinner or heading out for a drink with a group of friends, the Groups feature allows you to group all of these people in one place, so you can automatically send a group text to let them know the meeting place or if you’re running late. This would be perfect for your kids sports teams, to contact all the parents at once. You can also see what this groups status is via their Facebook posts, tweets and texts.
The entire Moms Fashion File team (Brooke of Power Moms Media, Me, Alison of Sassy Moms in the City Nicole of MomTrends) gave the Windows Phone a workout while at BlogHer and they were even on hand to showcase and giveaway their phones to some of the attendee’s at our Secret Style Suite! So to answer the question “Can the Windows Phone keep up?” I’d say yes, yes it can!
Disclosure: I was given a Windows Phone to use and was sponsored by Windows Phone for BlogHer. Windows Phone was also a sponsor of the Secret Style Suite. All my savvy thoughts and sassy opinions are my very own. I share my experience with you because I honestly enjoyed the Windows Phone and many of its design features.
