Taking the opportunity to gather in those Android users who aren't able to fix problems on their own into the Windows Phone 7 and Windows Phone Mango fold is Microsoft's latest tactic in showing off how simple the platform can be - what we'll be waiting for here is the response from the people who though they weren't able to figure out how to use an Android phone were then able to use a Windows Phone without a hitch. It's likely that the storyline ends here, on the other hand, tracking further likely impossible.
