iPhone 4 is Apple's Vista says Microsoft exec

Microsoft's COO has some harsh words for Apple about the iPhone 4.

Microsoft’s COO, Kevin Turner, didn’t exactly mince his words when talking about the iPhone 4 at the Big M’s Windows Partner Conference yesterday.

In a put-down that will cause acute embarrassment at Infinite Loop, Turner said, “It looks like the iPhone 4 might be [Apple’s] Vista, and I’m okay with that.”

Turner’s ok with that because Microsoft’s iPhone 4-bothering Windows Phone 7 is just around the corner. In fact, Apple’s antenna woes could not come at a better time for Microsoft as it looks to reinvigorate its previously knackered mobile OS.

Whether the iPhone 4 really is Apple’s Vista moment remains to be seen. This is one hardware problem after all, not a lumbering, much-maligned operating system kicking it on myriad gadgets.
