Anonymous, 10 Oct 2010I really don't understand how gsmarena rates the phone OS's solely on the interface, even tho... moreso what can symbian phones do that other smartphones cann't,nothing so shut up
symbian is too outdated,its for fans of nokia now only and old timers
TC, 10 Oct 2010Android and iOS can handle screen resolution larger than 360x640, Symbian cannot!what an idiot reply
Just wanted to point out something.
There IS SD card support, it is just that you can't remove one card and put a new one in. It uses something similar to RAID 0, so you will have to wipe if installing a larger card.
If it uses the Zune software, then it will support the same codecs, aka divx/xvid.
Flash support has already been announced and you can bet that silverlight will be there as well.
I do hope that some phones come with a camera for future support. While I personally will never need it, there are some people who do.
The cloud serivces integration also isn't fully working, Zune and Xbox live are not available in some countries.
memory card the is support
Some Windows Phones have a Secure Digital (SD) card that’s used to expand the amount of storage space on the phone. If your phone has one, it’s in an SD card slot underneath the battery cover on the back of your phone.
Windows Phone uses a special high–performance SD card that works differently than SD cards in other devices. When your phone is built and first set up, its internal storage and SD card are combined and recognized as one storage system.
You should not remove the SD card in your phone or replace it with a new one because your Windows Phone won’t work properly. Existing data on the phone may be lost, and that SD card can’t be used in other devices or Windows Phones.
Well this is a fail. People used WM for it's high end functionality that almost served as a mobile PC. Now it's just another java platform. No general file manager even. So you pay through the roof for a phone with the functionality of the a java platform.

I really don't understand how gsmarena rates the phone OS's solely on the interface, even though there are far more important things than that. Take Symbian, no OS exceeds its capabilities ( If someone thinks so, mention one thing that iPhone or android can do which symbian cannot ) yet they still do not like it just because there's no transparency and graphics. Shame
I used to be a big wm fan! I loved it because it was customizable. Now I will never recommend wp7 for anyone! They are just copying the iphone, but they are making it worse lol.
Microsoft you are just embarrassing your selves more and more. I was looking forward for wp7, but I am so disappointed. No multi tasking - no copy/paste - no external memory, boribg ui that will not be customized. Very expensive apps from the market, the same way wm was, WTF were they thinking !
Microsoft = epic fail
Most probably microsoft wanted to make a phone with a simple UI but at last they made something like shit. I mean really i don't understand what kinda UI this is. Simply boring. Even the stone age symbian's UI is even far better than this one. Although windows phone 7 has a very end features. But to me if a phone's UI doesn't look at least good then it loses of its 40% appeal to me.
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2010Ok, ok... This WM7 Standard. Where is the WM7 PRO? hahaha..
soon microsoft will launch WM 7 professional edition and WM 7 ultimate edition
TC, 09 Oct 2010Symbian can not even handle larger resolution than 360x640 so Symbian3 is also an outdated OS ... moreSymbian do able to handle larger resolution than 360x640
in case you forget
read nokia E90 spec sheet
even old symbian able to support hi res
Wait a minute, this is iOS 4 with a different name - Windows Phone 7. It is exactly Apple's iPhone OS, but called something else. :)))
Symbian^3,meego,maemo are the future of d next mobile generation better to wait and watch
rebel, 09 Oct 2010now only symbian is outdated and left behind others osyes ofcourse, and i guess, you came to this conclusion because symbian cant do any of the things the other OSes do. right?
maria, 09 Oct 2010I agree 100% with you the are the worst i ever seen in a new release OS nobody want these dow... moreabsolutely true... wait and see... thats all... but like u said its a features downgrade
anyone noticed how UGLY and BORING this thing is??!!!
Oh and it can't do things my feature phone can, like bt., multitasking and copy and paste?
I used to truly respect microsoft but now I know for sure that they are only followers, never leaders :
ps3( leader )
xboc ( follower)
iphone ( leader)
wp7 ( follower)
You keep copying others because you saw them succeed, what a shame? I respect nokia 1000 time more than I respect you microsoft, even though I hate symbian.
