Always had great fun with my winmo devices, but they weren't stable, fast nor easy to handle(always way to much customizing)
Doubt that they'll hit the spot this time, since there's a lot of decent operating systems available.

Microsoft may wish to maintain a business but not at the totalitarian expense of its customers. Apple if for sheeple. Simples.
All this talk about cloud services is pissing me off, at a time when the evil Telecoms capitalists are saving harder than ever for there gold plated yachts, and placing caps on data usage. you'll be lucky to be able to get half a months usage out of all this on-line goodness before you run out of allowance and end up with a $$$$ bill - Bill. Its all a bit horse before the cart. The only cap that needs to be dished out is the need to kneecap a few Telecoms company CEOs and get real with the cost of data instead of ripping off the human race with there bullsh!t
Anonymous, 15 Jul 2010What difference does that make then? just picture cloud as the Internet :)
If it doesn't work extremely well with Windows Live (including office.live.apps) Microsoft can beter stop with developing WP7. I am afraid that the phone only will work very well with (hosted) Exchange and things like there XBox (businessman don't use). Still Microsoft is to busy with selling Office. Why is not possible to download for free Word Starter and Excel starter. Microsoft is still to arrogant: it still wants to dictate the market and how the user has to work. If they don't use there attitude they will be something simaler like IBM: only a brand in your mind.
I just made a personal cloud.
I wouldn't step into it if I were you. I've been eating mexican food.
Anemone, 14 Jul 2010It's cloud based my friend. :)What difference does that make then?
wow,cool feature its not against android but surely against the iphone.....let the Game begin.
anyone knows when will be the launch of WM7
Personal cloud?...itsn't it just a copy of Mobile Me from Apple? they even got a similar logo!
... meh. I bet all these cloud services will only be available in the US (and maybe UK) for the first 1/2 year after launch, which means nothing for the rest of us.
Bill Gates was the one who said he thought about personal computers the size of something pocketable (at the time even cell phones weren't pocketable).
In the end it's all his idea, the iphones, waves, galayies, androids etc...

Maybe with Android 1.0 .... becouse Android 1.5 , 1.6 is superior to WinMo 6.1 ... You can't even compare it with Android 2.1 or 2.2 ... Face it , Windows Mobile is losing ground (already lost ground in market). Windows Mobile is amost a DEAD OS .... Let wait and see Windows Phone 7 that is damn resource hungry (on that specs I can run Windows XP without problem) and have the "only text" interface ...
I thought the main point of a WinMo always was in synccing ability with the PC and file transfer. Are MS saying that it was so inadequate that they need to focus all the marketing for tehnew product on this single feature?
With other OS it seems to me you can connect your mobile to a PC as an external drive and drag and drop anyway.
But the big question is "When will it be released" ??
For no one will wait for Windows 7 to be released before they buy new smart phone. It will be nice if Microsoft gives us a date on which it will actually be released. And it will be even better if in the mean time, they release some of their good work for unfortunate left behind loyal customers of Windows 6.1/6.5...

iPhone is not well synchronized with Exchange and online backup of text messages.
Win Mobile 6.1 still unbeatable until now. Its equal with Android now.
Win Phone 7 will be better than every OS
