Windows 7 Mobile Operating Thingy for Whatsits - does anyone care?

I was at Google IO last week.  Talk about iPhones was everywhere - people thinking about how the Android vs iPhone battle was going to play out.

Windows 7 Mobile Operating Thingy for Whatsits (or whatever they're calling it these days) wasn't talked about.  Not at all.  Zero. Nada.

The Kin?  Again, nothing.  Crickets.

I hear there was trivial shakeup at Microsoft today.  Whatever.

Do the people at Microsoft understand how bad things are?  Sure doesn't seem like it.

I really hope Microsoft gets its act together with Phone 7. It would be the perfect development platform for me - but it doesn't matter if nobody buys the phones.

has your opinion changed given the news that Nokia will run Windows OS?

Anil - no. Of course, I'm here at Google IO 2011 drinking the kool-aid again.

But so far Win7 doesn't seem to be making a difference. I agree the the Nokia deal is interesting, but they have to move faster than they seem to be.
