Windows Phone First Person series starts with Kali Jones

Microsoft are kicking off a good number of marketing campaigns. One being the Me video series following Windows Phone users, which we saw fallowing Eagle Rock Yacht Club, a non-profit dodge ball league and community. We've now just seen published on the Windows Phone blog a new written series that follows individuals and how Windows Phone affects their life.

Kali Jones, hair stylist, answered some questions with in-depth explanations covering how Windows Phone has changed her life, both on a personal and professional note. One of the highlights about the platform that attracted Kali to purchase her HTC HD7 was the simplicity of the Metro UI. Here's a quick snippet of the article:

For one thing, I’m not going to miss a contact, whether they choose to email, call or text me. My clients will book their appointments through texting, and then I remind them about their appointments with a text. For the Las Vegas clients, one week before I go down there I blast out texts. I think they like that, because people can’t pick up the phone at work, or maybe they’re a cocktail waitress and they can text me back at 1 or 2 a.m. and it’s fine—I don’t sleep next to my phone. And it’s easy to track what happens to the emails and texts, whether they went through or got a reply. 

I also use my phone to take credit card payments. When I started my business after moving back here, I looked at getting onto the Visa machine at the salon, but you have to do a 3-year contract. If you’re in business for yourself, that’s hard because you don’t know how long you’ll be in any one place. Then I got my phone and found an app called Credit Card Machine that only required a 6-month contract. It stores the client’s contact info—all I have to do is enter the credit card number. It emails a receipt to me and to the client, all paperless and totally awesome. You can check online to make sure the payment went through, and it shows up in your bank account in a couple of days.

It's well worth the read should you be looking at Windows Phone Mango as your next investment or know of someone who's looking to switch. Head on over to the blog (link below) to read through the rest of the interview. Also, if you know of anyone who could be interviewed next, be sure to send their details in (email located at top of interview)
