Windows PhoneI’ve been a user before it was cool. Well, many of you probably still don’t consider it cool, but I sure do. It was love at first swipe that lasted for almost 3 years and although I’ve switched away from WP OS, it still leaves me wanting more.

As a windows phone user, I’ve gone through a range of emotions in the last few years. I’ve mostly been confident of my choice of OS and have aggressively defended it against the non-believers, aka. iPhone and users, but there have been time when I couldn’t really make a strong argument about why I shouldn’t move to a more popular and well established ecosystem such as iOS.

As a blogger who keeps up with the latest and greatest in the world of tech, I always found myself craving to use the new apps on iOS or Android which would keep WP users waiting for months or years and many of them would never show up in Windows Phone market place. I stayed with WP for so long hoping things will change, iPhone and Android users will recognize how beautiful the OS is and make the switch which would result in app developers taking the OS a bit more seriously. But that never happened, in fact windows phone’s YOY market share shrunk in the 3rd quarter.

What made me switch?

Cortanas_from_Halo GameTwo years ago, when introduced Siri – it was criticized, publicized and lauded by almost every smartphone user. It was game changing – people could talk to devices rather than talk over devices. They could ask questions and have them answered, they could schedule appointments, search the web, make calls, send messages, and even have themselves reminded about setting reminders – all with just voice commands. That was the future – another breakthrough from . Simple name: Siri and impressively comprehensive functionality.

It was pleasantly the other side of the world for tech enthusiasts. Then introduced Now – integrating almost all its service for the might of its personal digital assistant. Many said “that’s Siri for ” devices. Microsoft announced Tell Me for 7 devices but it didn’t work as expected. Microsoft’s Tell Me couldn’t stand a chance against Siri, in most cases, at least when they were pitched side-by-side for comparison.

Several months later – although a great setback for Microsoft even if voice-controlled technology is not the imminent future, Microsoft responded to the demand, attempting to silence the critics and turn their hate to love or at least neutralize it, address the demand of Windows Phone users who were swayed away by the sultry humanoid voice of Siri in 4S, then 5 and now 5S at the touch of a finger and of course show the world that it is no less than its fiercest competitor.

It introduced Cortana to us, albeit in leaked pictures – Microsoft’s answer to Siri or Microsoft’s version of Siri, whatever you would like to call it with love until Microsoft rechristens it at official launch.
