Speaking at Dive Into Mobile in New York, Windows Phone chief Terry Myerson had lots to say about the notion of a Microsoft Surface smartphone, the possibility of a Windows smartwatch, and the state of Android and iOS.
Starting with the much-discussed Microsoft Surface smartphone, Terry has in fact dismissed the idea point blank.
"It would have to be something where Nokia or HTC was not providing the consumer experience we think is possible with our platform," suggested Terry.
That jives with recent wordage from Casey McGee, senior marketing manager for Windows Phone, who said he was “very happy with the ability to influence” Nokia.
As for the possibility of a Windows smartwatch (which would go head-to-head with the entirely unofficial Apple iWatch), Terry teased: "It's an exciting space. There's no doubt that wearable computing has incredible potential."
Discussing Windows Phone’s competitors (if you can call them that; Windows Phone still has a paltry market share), Terry describes Android as “kind of a mess”, while dismissing the iPhone 5 as it “just added a fifth row of icons”. Should be pretty easy for Windows Phone to take first place then, eh?
