Apple sold 300,000 iPads during the roll out weekend (two days; one a holiday) but Microsoft Evangelizer Paul Thurrott says, “Anyone who believes this thing is a game changer is a tool.”
The same Paul Thurrott on Microsoft’s Windows Phone:
Windows Phone is a game changer, and that’s something that we can’t say all that often about Microsoft products. That it comes so soon after the iPhone—itself a game changer of historic proportions—and even competes in the same market is, perhaps, most astonishing of all.
So far, Apple has sold nearly 50-million iPhones. Microsoft has sold zero Windows Phones and isn’t likely to sell any before the end of 2010. Thurrott doesn’t know it, but the game has already changed.
