i hope all windows phone 7 phone burn to hell....and microsoft can rot in the dark pit of tatarus.... I hope ARM, ADOBE FLASH, NEVER SUPPORT WINP7....and samsung lg htc qualcomm and all other withdraw their support..... this is a curse to microsoft windows phone 7 for betraying us..............
It's a pity it wasn't reported a week ago, I love the WP7 OS and believe it has great potential but unfortunately for Microsoft I needed USB connectivity with Outlook & tethering for a justified reasons so I purchased HTC Desire HD running Android 2.2 instead. Perhaps in two to three years time I will consider the WP7 again. But then again if it wasn't for Microsoft omitting the two features I needed I would not have discovered a whole new World called Android - thanks Microsoft.
Droid terminator, 11 Nov 2010froyo does already usb or not android os is king. gingerbread coming soon Jesus, I am an Android fan too, but because I see reasons why it is good, I'm using my head, you in fact look like all the apple fans, just blindly in love with Android, not even knowing whether it's really good or it sucks, but you don't want to know that, that's how the apple fans buy the iPhones, without using their heads, just blindly in love with the Apple mark. Or I misunderstood what you said, but you didn't sound very bright...
Anonymous, 14 Nov 2010I think WP7 is underrated, and will surprise everyone in 2011. It may take Android by surprise... moreas a tablet OS Windows 7 might look great.
but as a smartphone OS, it looks very terrible.
I think the era of MS already gone.

Facetime on 3G = Normal Video call on 3G = Patchy not very useful feature that is available on all decent phones and has been for a while + More than 2 people involved = Rubbish idea
As the builds of xbox live on Windows Phone 7 are released it will easily become the killer app.
Unlocking extra items/levels/avatars in Halo/COD/GoW etc. Playing against xbox users online with xbox arcade games. Group chat with xbox friends etc.
WP7 is sick..
Good looking interface
but that's it...!!!
I wonder how bad microsoft in mobile world....
Windows CE beaten by symbian?
Kin, suicide in a couple of weeks?
and now this joke 7????
I wonder how long microsoft can keep this metro UI concept

Had a play the other day and really liked the interface and effects, and the features are pretty up-to-date. I do have a soft spot for MS - it's so fashionable to hate 'em but people forget how much good they have done - ... True true, Thats real talk right there!!!
Dennis, 11 Nov 2010If apple could back their videocalling back a few years and let us call over 3g and between di... moreOn the subject of videocalling, this, pretty much. We've had it for years, it's never been hard to do (how difficult is it to dial a phone number or select a contact, really?) but people just haven't had a real use for it.
And it's not just 3G handsets. Videoconferencing is a relatively old technology by now - but teleconferencing remains the standard for many good and practical reasons.
What about Facetime differs so significantly from existing solutions that we'll have some kind of "revolution"?
WP7 has some real potential. Had a play the other day and really liked the interface and effects, and the features are pretty up-to-date. I do have a soft spot for MS - it's so fashionable to hate 'em but people forget how much good they have done - so I really hope they decide not to pursue the iTunes-like "Zune software only" approach.
Tethering is something I expect of a smartphone. Good to see it!
Thanks for putting this up, although i rarely tether my phone for internet (i have a 3g usb modem) sometimes you are stuck and need to do it. Although everyone is flaming each other about operating systems we must remember that people choose what they want to use based on their individual requirements. Personally I am enjoying my WM7 phone at the moment am looking forward to any updates that come through from microsoft to enhance my experience. What we must also remember is that when the iphone came out it wasn't even 3g and couldn't make a picture message and when android came out you spent half of your time restarting your phone because the system was so unstable and crashed all the time. Remember where you came from before you criticize those just starting!
i guess this is just iOS all over again except its gayOS next is gayTV and gayPOD
WP7 is trying to be iOS 0.9 beta! What a ridiculous waste of time... M.I.C.R.O.S.O.F.T. = Most Intelligent Consumers Realize Our Software Only Fools Teenagers

You can make a video call Phone to Phone or Phone to PC. Thats old news. Facetime it's nothing new nor revolutionary. Kudos to Apple for making it seem like a new thing no other phone can make. Their distorsion field it`s awesome!
Alas, I have just realised, that my next phone WILL NOT be WP7. No USB-storage mode, no USB tethering. Two features, that I can not live without and I can not afford to risk some unreliable third-party solutions (that is why I haven`t looked for iPhone either).
I was not very fond of Android, but well, no choice. (Bada is exotic)
Shame on you, Microsoft, shame on you again. My old WM6.5 is more useful than new WP7, I am very disappointed.
Facetime is pointless. Who actually bothers to video call someone when a video emailed is much better?
