Android Jelly Beans more Windows than Microsoft Windows 8
 
If you are unfortunate enough to purchase a Windows 8 Phone , you will discover very fast that you can't use windows anymore. With Android Jellybeans, you can pop up an application in a window, re size it, and place it where you want, here an example of S Note open when using the Google Apps Spreadsheet. What's up MS, you can't make a Windows with windows anymore ?

Isn't this is what only the Note can do, not just any Jellybean device?

I do believe this is a Samsung thing (part of the 'Premium Suite' coming to the Note, Note 2, S3), but I'm not sure if other Android makers have something similar.

As devices get larger screens, I would be shocked if we don't see something similar on the new Blackberry devices and Win8/RT stuff soon.

What is important is that the Big Giant Microsoft can't do the same with their new Flagship OS. The Metro Crap apps are not able to run in window or re size ( well sort off , of course you have the slit in 20% of the screen kind of stupid thing )

I don't really see the point of this. "Windows" is a brand. It doesn't mean that every single thing Microsoft does needs to have actual window-designed apps. Come on people....

Except isn't that why it was developed and called Windows in the first place :P

And it's why a lot of peoples are returning their Surface too, they can run regular Windows Apps on a Windows RT, when of course as not computer literate they was expecting so.

Indeed it was, but I still don't believe that Microsoft should be forced to do only window-designs just because thair brand is named "Windows". :P

And @OP. What do you mean by "can't use windows anymore?" You were never able to use windows in any Windows Phone design. You could in Windows Mobile I think(?), but that was a different thing altogether. In that way, Windows Phone works a lot like Apple iOS which people worship like there was no tomorrow. I have a Windows Phone 7.5 device and if there is one thing I can do it is to recommend Windows Phone to anybody who wants to listen. It is by far the best mobile experience I've ever had.

Of course they can't, it's a tablet. It's not Microsoft's fault that people don't do their homework before they mindlessly toss their money at the nearest electronics store.

Perhaps, but that doesn't change the fact that it works like a charm and I wouldn't trade it for anything (other than perhaps something with Windows Phone 8). :thumb:
