Apple vs. Microsoft: A tale of two mobile updates

leave a comment »

You can learn a lot about the positives and negatives of Apple and Microsoft by the way they update their mobile platforms

On the one hand, you have Apple, which quietly rolled out iOS 4.3 with the precision of a Swiss watch. The update came a day earlier than expected, in fact. Clearly, Apple has its mobile act together. It has its partners in lockstep. And it has seemingly maintained its typical shroud of silence and censorship to perpetuate illusion of perfection.

Then there’s Microsoft, which is handling the latest update to Windows Phone 7 with the precision of a digital watch you might purchase with a few cereal-box tops. The company has belatedly managed to push out an alleged February update to just some users and has further delayed a March update. But one thing you don’t get from Microsoft is silence, just lots of excuses.
