Windows Phone chief Terry Myerson wins VentureBeat award

We usually prefer to keep the spotlight on our phone here. Terry Myerson, Microsoft corporate vice president, oversees  the company's Windows Phone division.But today we’re making a small exception. The reason: we just learned that Terry Myerson, our commander in chief, snagged VentureBeat’s inaugural Top Mobile Mover award—and we’re all pretty excited for him.

One of the country’s top business blogs, VentureBeat announced the award a few hours ago in Sausalito, Calif., where nearly 200 mobile industry execs are gathered for its annual Mobile Summit.

Windows Phone, writes VB executive editor Dylan Tweney, is “an attractive, responsive operating system that’s getting a lot of notice. You can count on it to make big waves in the mobile market this year. That’s why we’ve named Myerson our Top Mobile Mover for 2012.”

You can read the rest—and more about Terry—here.

    Dude can you believe the weather we had here, it was crazy out the blue for Tornadoes to just drop down in the inner cities like that.

    It was really surreal for me because I’m here in California attending the 2012 NTEN, and I saw this going on back home. Thank God the family was ok, but less than a mile from my home was nerve racking and too close for comfort.

    On a brighter note I’ve been here hanging out with the Microsoft folks from Redmond, WA and I’m all smiles to say the least, it’s been a good conference thus far.

    I’ve seen a lot of Smartphone beta testers here so I’ve been spreading the word and sharing link with joy; the responses are just priceless.

    One of the major issues with WP is awareness, no matter that the Lumia 900 seems to be great, most don't even know about it. What is wrong with MS and now Nokia? Don't these companies know how to create awareness for products? Haven't they learnt from others such as Apple (and even how to create ads that focus ONLY on the device instead of other things like the user and their daily life that takes away from the product being advertised)?

    I don't get why there will be Paypal support as an in app purchasing solution. Doesn't that take all revenue sharing proceeds that is supposed to to to MS and dumps them in Paypal's pocket? What people need to be asking for is simply in app purchasing instead of asking for "Paypal" by name.
