Now even Microsoft is poking Apple with sticks over its botched management of reception issues that plague the iPhone 4 almost three weeks after its launch. Kevin Turner, Microsoft’s chief operating officer, compared the iPhone 4 to Microsoft’s failed Vista operating system. The comments came during a keynote speech at Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference in Washington, D.C.
Earlier in his talk, Turner poked fun at the reception problems that have dogged Apple’s iPhone 4 since its June 24 launch. “One of the things I want to make sure you know today is that you’re going to be able to use a Windows Phone 7 and not have to worry about how you’re holding it to make a phone call,” Turner said, referring to the Microsoft mobile operating system set to debut on smartphones this fall.
