Windows Phone May Have Had the Best April Fool's Day Joke
The people behind Windows Phone joined in on the April Fool’s Day Internet hit parade, offering up what surely would have been a revolutionary and ground-breaking update of the pager, in high Metro style. But man, pagers don’t just make themselves, you know. Microsoft offered up a non-committal “2014…give or a take a few months” for what would have surely been the company’s breadwinner, if only it was real.
The Windows Phone people also threw in the most eco-friendly smartphone ever – the Windows Phone made of denim. I could almost hear smartphone case makers all over have a collective heart of attack over that idea. Again, it’s a shame it’ll never see the light of day – for as much time as our smartphones spend in our pockets, we ought to have a phone to properly match our jeans.
