So this is not anything new, but it seems there are a lot of people curious about Windows Phone 7.
In fact, if you currently have a smartphone you can give the UI demo of WP7 by opening your mobile browser and going to aka.ms/wpdemo
I find it really cool and a neat way to give people exposure to the platform.
Ive had every iPhone that has been released, but I'm finding myself bored with the design of the OS. I'm curious about other smartphones available on AT&T. I really do like what windows phone offers but it's missing some important apps for me. Android seems nice but I'm turned off by how it has a similar feel to iOS. I'm interested in hear some views from people with android and windows phone. I'm currently a Mac user, own a Xbox and apple tv; if that helps at all.
Just to be fair.
When posting please state if the switch is from iOS to WP7 or Android to WP7
Follow these directions, it worked for me.
I'm wondering if anyone out there is using a WP7 device with a Mac? I love the OS, but i'm nervous about switching to the Titan because I use a Mac at home. Some specifics: * How is iTunes integration? * How do Google Calendars / Contacts fit with the People Hub? Thanks for any and all thoughts you folks have.
I just installed a beta of Mango for WP7 last night and I found a very weird/cool feature for it but I'm not sure if it's from older versions or from Mango. The feature is that the phone will actually have a data connection when it's attached to the computer while the Zune program is on. I know that it's not using wifi or my mobile data connection because wifi is off and I don't have a sim card inserted in the phone. I'll post about my impressions of WP7 Mango next week when I'm back in at home.
iOS and Android are both competing for 1st place, but there is a second battle for 3rd place going on between webOS, QNX, & Windows Phone 7. By the end of 2011, who takes 3rd place? My vote is for webOS.
As iPhone user I feel jealous that WP7 gets all that twitter,linkedin and deep facebook integration, turn-by-turn navigation and Microsoft's version of Google Goggles that works awesome. If iOS 5 wont get total redesign, I will seriously think about Windows Phone as my next smartphone OS. What do you think? Is WP7 finally become a serious competitor to iOS and Android?
All of the phone OS seem to be doing something better than their competitors and with the first WebOS3 device set to come out soon it just adds onto the already competitive market. And just as the OS keep getting better we're now starting to see some handset manufactures push the hardware limits. This thought came into my mind because I'm planning to pick up a new phone in the next month and after my experience with Android I'm on the fence with if I want to go back to them.
