AT&T Mobility CEO Pleased With Windows Phone

Ralph de la Vega, CEO of AT&T Mobility, stated that sales for Windows Phone mobiles are more than pleasing and have exceeded expectations by proving to have a long-lasting momentum, one which is likely to increase when Windows 8 launches.

The statement was made during the JP Morgan technology conference, where the AT&T's mobile chief described Windows Phone OS and the latest Lumia 900 as being simple, easy to use and intuitive.

"The reception to the Lumia launch has actually exceeded our expectations. So we think there is a very good chance that Microsoft will have a very good OS that will be right in there with iOS and Android," added de la Vega.

Moreover, the CEO acknowledges the growth of Microsoft's potential with the launch of Windows 8 (the desktop version) in the fourth quarter by the sheer fact that it will be the first time when the mobile experience developed by Microsoft would be integrated across multiple platforms: desktops, tablets and phones.

Ralph de la Vega believes that Windows Phone will grow like no other and in the upcoming period the mobile OS will battle head to head against Android and iOS: "From what I have seen and the previews that I have been given, I think it is going to be exceptionally good. I am very upbeat in what they are bringing to the market."

A nice addition will also be Windows Phone 8, codenamed Apollo, which is also expected to be launch in the same quarter as its desktop version.
