imageiPhone (iOS 4) Vs Windows Phone 7: UI Compared

Folks at Pocket Now have published an interesting comparison of iOS 4 running on an iPhone 4 with Windows Phone 7 running on a LG phone. In the video, they have compared the user interface of the unlock screen, homescreen, multitasking and accessibility to audio playback controls of the two...

    i realize that the multitasking is not true multitasking, compared to backgrounder and other apps because when i switch back to an app that i had previously used, it resets like if i just opened the app for the first time...thats no good

    That's up to the app, though. They need to submit an update to allow full multi-tasking. Like AP Mobile News does full multi-tasking, but yahoo does not. It's not up to Apple, it's up the developers.

    Just my take.... Live tiles, they look plain and boring, there is no background, some of the tiles are eye sores, i DESPISE how the apps are listed (and we all know the iPhone has the superior screen) I wish i could show you a screen shot of my Iphone, i have at least 60 apps, and only two pages, everything is organized into folders, and is only home, swipe, folder, app. There are a few things i would like to change with my iPhone. I like the windows lock screen, it looks clean, and notifications are right there, vs having to look for the badges on the iPhone. app switching on my iphone is handled MUCH better with multifl0w, it wouldnt be the same without being jailbroken, there are SO many useful mods that the jailbreak community has provided that truly MAKE this phone much more manageable. still running 4.0 and i will not upgrade until its jailbroken as well.

    Either way I don't think Apple will allow every app to run in the background otherwise they would have "real" multitasking" in the first place?

    I wonder how long it'll take MS to realize people will need copy and paste. They say that apps will push information to each other so they won't need it. But they can't think of every instance that someone wants to copy something. I use copy and paste all the time. MS needs to implement it, but of course they will be like Apple and wait for version 2 and tons of negative feedback from users.

    I agree with you!! They should call it differently because it is not multitasking.

    And where did you see the real multitasking working nicely? Even in windows, as you hide the app, the system takes memory and CPU away from it for the other apps, and all the JB multitasking iPhone has ever had were taking much more memory AND adding lag, since they did not pause or take the CPU away from them. Apple's multitasking is very close to the multitasking in every other system, exept that old apps do not have it enabled. Right now my browser app goes to background, my RSS reader can go to background, hell, even some of extremely memory intensive apps go to the background!.. While dropping the unneeded CPU and memory back to the iPhone, and that's not something I saw in any JB app at all.

    Thank you! Very useful information. I'm not going to buy an Iphone4 just yet. It sounds like it's going to be worth waiting just to play with a WP7 phone.

    I have iPhone since it came out and I too find it repetitive. Plus I hate how Apple doesn't release useful stuff till the following year for profit. I am and will be switching over to windows 7 mobile. I need to get things done, not wait a year for the feature to be realesed.

    There is much to be done to the iPhone and all apple thinks about is making them unjailbreakable... Why didn't they make a contract with blackberry and incorporate rim tech on the iPhone so we could chat with blackberry users and why can't we share our bandwidth without having to buy a software for it... Why don't apple start making iPhone more of what it's Linux roots are, free. Doesn't this monster have enough money already I mean how much money can these guys really spend..
