Pros » Windows Phone probably has the most beautiful interface of all platforms with its animated tiles that are constantly updated with information. The operating system also is silky smooth in operation, including scrolling and launching apps.
» Nokia, which is strictly a Windows Mobile platform, is producing the best camera phones, especially for low-light settings. There has been nothing but praise, for example, for the new Nokia 1020, which boasts a 41-megapixel camera.
» This is still the only platform that has a complete mobile version of Microsoft Office.
Cons » Windows Phone is taking a beating in the marketplace. Of the phones shipped in the first quarter of this year, only 3.2 percent of them were Windows Phone-based.
» As a result, developers think of this platform very last when making mobile apps. The app store has only a fraction of what the others have.
