The new Windows Phone 7 Series user interface features a new holistic design system that brings together form and function based on key principles.
A different kind of ignoring UX factors, perhaps. There's an appealing slickness to it, but it is absolutely not going to succeed in the market. Why? Because you cannot just pick it up and know how to use it.
I have the sneaking suspicion that "Android doesn't do multi-touch" is the new "Mac doesn't do right-click." Which is to say: For a time, it didn't. Then it did, but not fully. Then it did fully (Android will get there right around the time they take the G1 back behind the barn, I suspect), but people like the trope too much to let it go.
Meanwhile, the iPhone's custom circuitry will only get smaller and faster, delivering more bang per buck and making it possible to lower prices even further.
How do you turn your lights on and off?
