I hope you guys understand that WP7 has multitasking in the same sense as Ios 4... So stop your bickering.
UI Animation, and text scrolling is amazing. I especially love the graphic magazine look. But waaaaay too much BLACK. Without a colourful background image in the menus, its looking too techy and not appealing.
so much flaws. i can't
no multitasking and no bluetooth transfer?
oh, 'coming on the next update', typical

Next time you come to my restaurant, I'll only give you half a plate. And ask you to give me a chance to prove I can support a customer by giving him the other half next week :) I'll be asking for cash up front though!
Casey_Sydney, 12 Oct 2010Although I do hate the fact that we are missing quite a lot of features i can see reason behin... moreso, are u telling me that i have to wait 6 months , for have a descent software in my expensive cellphone? or pay and apps that do the missing stuffs? that is no fair at all... sound like a desktop version of windows... thats why Symbian is worlwide leader, and android is going to the top...

The Zune pass on WP7 differs from Zune pass on PC how? It's just as easy to download to your PC and copy and distribute them if you feel like it.
Snake, 11 Oct 2010GSMarena are too optimistic about wp7. They are right in saying that iphone and android had a ... moreTrue. If this was an upstart company nobody ever heard about making their first ever OS, I'd only applaud. But it's Microsoft we are talking about here. A company that has been around for AGES, with lots of coding skills at their backs, and they still don't get the fact that by now they should be putting all essentials on the table. Why leave things out? It's not like they were hard pressed for time. Copy and past next year.. Seriously?? How long does it take to code in this kind of functionality? 3 months? That's ridiculous. WP7 is a halfassed OS, I really expected much better.
and they call this a smartphone?
with all the missing features from the OS, this is just a normal phone. heck even normal phones got those missing features!
Although I do hate the fact that we are missing quite a lot of features i can see reason behind most of the choices that Windows has made.
If you have unlimited access to songs via a Zune pass and then you still have Bluetooth file transfer, imagine customers using the file manager to transfer all of their paid for Zune songs to their 32GB memory card(SD card slot announced with the Samsung Focus). Handing it around to all their friends to share with the world, or using Bluetooth or mass storage mode to transfer these songs around to one another.
M$ would lose big money!
Copy and Paste is already set out for early 2011 as stated in the article. I imagine either Silverlight or Flash will also make their way at some stage too.
Consider that with standardized hardware M$ can focus entirely on software updates to improve the end users experience. Unlike Apple with I-phones to worry about or Android with OS's from Cupcake to Gingerbread and compatibility problems that these cause.
Yes some major features are still missing but i would rather be able to play with it now and wait for those features than have them miss the boat and release WP7 in another 6 months when those features are added.
Give M$ a chance to prove that they can support us through WP7!!!
i like it. The lack of certain features is not the point - it is the approach they took to using a phone. It's solid, in my opinion.
HEY GSM ARENA!!! u miss another disadvantages
you guys put these:
No system-wide file manager
No Bluetooth file transfers
No USB mass storage mode
Limited third-party apps availability
No Flash or Silverlight support in the browser
Too dependent on Zune software for file management and syncing
No video calls
No custom ringtones
Music player lacks equalizer presets
No DivX/XviD video support (automatic transcoding provided by Zune software)
No sign of free Bing maps Navigation so far
No internet tethering support
and there is the missing others:
no phone call
My neck gets in trouble, trying to watch your videos. Can't you put the phone straight? It's annoying!
No Bluetooth file transfers, No USB mass storage, No custom ringtones, No multitasking, No copy/paste....and so on. Welcome back to 1980 !!!! My Wave can do all that and so much more.
