What Windows Phone Does Better

I highlighted a few of the short comings of Windows Phone, but would a few bad points keep someone from buying in? I certainly hope not, but it really depends on what you want from your device and why it is, or isn't the best fit for you.

It fits well if...

You need a mobile office. If you are an office road warrior, WP is where you should start. Need to access that PowerPoint presentation now? Just hit the Office icon and you are there. Need that corporate email account at 11:00 at night, it is there with one touch. Group message your entire budget team with one touch and be ready for that meeting in 10 minutes. It is all one touch away.

You are a scrapbook fiend. If you go everywhere and want to scrapbook your life, Windows Phone and One Note is the perfect solution. Simply make a list of the topics you need, and flip through that list on the go wherever you are. Take photos with the amazing camera software and print them right from your PC at home with HP ePrint.

Your gym membership needs a vacation from you. With Zune music to keep you going during those long workouts and MyFitnessPal to track your progress, WP will keep you on track and get you closer to your fitness goals. While the slim designs may not drop the pounds for you, the music player will keep you inspired to do more.

If you can't wait to keep in touch with your friends and family. With group messaging, you and your friends will keep keep in touch with one simple tap. Share your photos via messaging or SkyDrive and post them directly to Facebook or Twitter.

If you are an XBox gamer that just loves more achievements. With XBox Live built in to the Windows Phone gaming hub, you can get all the action of the XBox platform on the go. Whether you play freebies like Wordament or download the latest Need For Speed release, Windows Phone games will pass the time for you while earning you more cred on your XBox Live account.

There's 1000 more reasons why I no longer carry an Android device, but the most important is that Windows Phone just works. Phone calls, text messages, emails and games, they all work smooth and without those pesky 'force closes' that those other phones tend to have.
