Believe it or not, there was a time before Windows Phone where Windows on mobile devices were actually pretty dominant. Windows Mobile was what competed on "smartphones" back in the day, and it was pretty good. In fact, it was so good, we once called ourselves "Windows Mobile Experts."
It was configurable, customizable, and was available on a wide range of hardware, including the infamous HTC HD2. Windows Mobile 6.5 was the last version of Windows Mobile before Microsoft killed it in favor of its new Windows Phone 7 OS.
Windows Phone 7 was a step back in many regards, missing many features, functions and configurable options that Windows Mobile fanatics had come to know and love. Instead, Windows Phone 7 focused on the user-interface, making a beautiful, fluid Start Screen and Metro design language. Windows Mobile was not a pretty OS in comparison.
Still, Windows Mobile had its fans, of which many didn't like Windows Phone 7 when it first launched. If you were one of those people, we want to hear from you! We have community members talking about this very topic right now, so make sure you jump in and check it out.
