Comment: Slippery slope (Score 5, Interesting) 189

by mlg98 (#46231117) Attached to: Microsoft Rumored To Integrate Android Apps

As a Windows Phone user I think this is a terrible idea. Didn't BlackBerry already try this? Did it help them? I don't think so. It is a slippery slope that only leads to irrelevance.

The beauty of Windows Phone is that it is not like Android and iOS. Well written WP apps, which follow the Metro (I know they don't call it that anymore) design philosophy integrate beautifully into the environment. Slapping Android apps, which follow very different conventions would diminish the user experience.

Whoever dies with the most toys wins.
