I know that MS is a giant company and employees just have to tune out allot of critics because it's just like endless religious wars but it also means that they probably aren't listening to the logical people who know what they're talking about.
I wrote something about MS WP7 marketing on another forum and was thinking. "If you're not Long Zheng or someone like that how can your voice be heard by actual MS employees?" You can suggest stuff all you want on C9 but only the regulars are listening and I doubt people in DPE are in a position to make much difference (not that you're doing a bad job, I love that C9 is such an open place).
Here's what I wrote that got me thinking about this...
The MS marketing people (who have proven to be quite inept at times) need to start bragging how well their OS works on 1.5Ghz single core processors while all the giant Android phones seem to need multi-core processors but still don't feel as snappy.
People who review phones are loving WP7.5 Mango and Nokia are making amazing new handsets but it's going to take some good educational ad campaigns to get some more momentum going so more high profile companies decide to develop apps for the OS.
They also need to start looking at every company that has TV ads that mention their iOS and sometimes even Android apps and make sure that an equivalent WP7 app is made too. It's a great way to advertise to non-technical people.
