Hotmail ditches iPhone for the Nokia Lumia 800 on main page

Well, it certainly took long enough but it looks like the folks at Hotmail finally realized that Windows Phone is their company's OS, not the iPhone. What we mean of course is when you navigate to you used to be greeted with the three smartphones: Samsung Focus, iPhone and some Android thing.

Now, in an ever-so-slight refresh, the Nokia Lumia 800 has taken front and center moving the iPhone to the back.

Sure, most might not even notice but it's still a nice nod to Windows Phone users and the success Nokia is bringing the ecosystem as a whole. It's great to see Hotmail at least acknowledge that much.

Thanks, Patrick, for the heads up!

  • Some Android thing. Lol
  • :-D I hate bias, but since Apple and Android is always doing it, feels warming to see a comment like this.....i love it.
  • Ik, right?
  • It'll be even nicer when they get rid of that ugly looking 'borg thing... =P
  • "Some Android thing." That's gonna be my gamer motto now lol

  • Isn't that the Galaxy S or something? Still "Some Android Things" was funny :D but its still the ugliest thing there lol
  • About damn time.
  • As it should be
  • Everytime as i visited the website, I noticed it. But now, thankfully, the Fuckking iPhone is gone. MS is like the Macintosh of smartphones.
  • In Italy we use to say "better later than never" ;)
  • Yeah, noticed this yesterday. Good thing because I mentioned to MS many months ago on twitter. Good to see it at the forefront
  • I still see the iPhone Front and Center. :( (Philippines)
    LOL at the "Some Android thing" though. :)
  • The iPhone wasn't ditched...It was moved out of front and center.  The Samsung Focus was ditched for the Lumia 800.
  • The way it should have been from the start...
  • Not an iPhone for me. Could be a uPhone.
  • By default will show an iphone but if u refresh yr page, Nokia lumia 800 will grabs the 1 place.. i am lovin it..:)!!!
  • Jeez, about time Microsoft!!!!
  • It's about time! Been waiting for this change.
