Update 06/01: With, Microsoft continue hitting on Google, a YouTube user has created a video, showing off “Microsoft Glass” if the software company “ever” decides to develop a similar Google Glass device.
The video show all the unexpected things that a Microsoft Windows-powered Glass would feature.
Spoiler alert: “as it usually happens with all good products launched by Microsoft and featuring Windows, it all ends with the infamous Blue Screen of Death.”
Microsoft has taken on Samsung Galaxy S4, stating “How much tech gear can you get for the price of a Galaxy S4?” The S4, “no doubts has a good camera, a good display, thousands of apps, and the ability to keep you connected to the weather, sports, news, and all of the people you care about. But that all cost you a cool $750 if you buy one “off contract”,” writes Microsoft’s Windows Phone evangelist Ben Rudolph.
Adding, he said that when “for $150 “off-contract” you can get a Nokia Lumia 521, which also has a good camera, a good display, thousands of apps, and the ability to keep you connected to the weather, sports, news, and all of the people you care about,” which one would you rather perer?
Because “it’s a Windows Phone, it does so arguably better than Android.”
Further, the company notes that’s for a $600 price difference–you can get a lot of stuff–here is a list of stuff Ben picked from Microsoft Store in Los Angeles, CA, with saving of $4:
- “A 16GB Kingston microSD card, which upped the 521’s total storage to 24GB…more than enough for most users.
- A 3-month Xbox Music pass, which gets you unlimited downloads and streaming of millions of tracks.
- A set of Nokia Purity earbuds by Monster. These are the buds I use every day – they rock (no pun intended).
- An ASUS VivoBook X202E touchscreen laptop. This thing is a REALLY great value at $449. Beautiful, powerful, and light.”
