Why is Windows Phone 7 emulator so slow compared to, um, iPhone OS Emulator?
I don't mean to start a war between iPhone vs Windows Phone 7, nor am I against Windows Phone 7. But I've noticed on both of my computers Windows Phone 7 emulator (Beta and CTP) lags like it's running on a crappy last-decade Celeron computer.
I have 2 computers: Macbook Pro 13" (2010 Model) with 2.4GHZ Core 2 Duo, 4GB RAM and ASUS G1 with 2.0 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 3GB RAM with fresh install of Windows 7.
Now iPhone emulator on Mac OS X is on the other hand so much smoother, and loads faster and just has better feel to it.
So why is Windows Phone 7 emulator so slow? Is that what we should expect from the devices that will be coming out this october? I hate more than anything on the phone is laggy UX; it just gets under my skin.
It would be nice if someone with the prototype device could comment on this issue.
