Posters in the windows and the shops have had stock yay! One shop was given one - which they had sold – the other shop has 12 (they had a couple still left so I managed to have a play with the Mozart which remains my phone of choice).
They knew about the pones, no promotional material in the shop but they did check to see if they had any in … which they didn’t.
The guy in the store knew about the phones, didn’t expect any in soon (they are still waiting fro the HTC desire) and he said that if you like win mob then stick with it. But he wasn’t sure about it’s viability in regards to apps.
So I gave him a quick demo of my developer mule . I think I completely changed his mind on that one. Made his day to see one I think (he liked our app too).
In conclusion I would say that like AT&T in the states Microsoft have a great ally in Orange and thanks to them for jumping right on the launch bandwagon. seeing this this morning really made me smile.
