    Did you see the Engadget story covering the Microsoft celebration that Windows 7 has gone RTM? It's bizarre in the extreme.

    What the lols?!

    As for it being wank, I dont trust the guardian when it comes to products that compete with apple.
    It's not the guardian, it's reporting on an article written by a well known and reliable pundit on such matters.

    Moron.

    Yeah, lack of Flash/YouTube is one of those "issues" I and Boodybuilder have alluded to, in amongst the generally favourable early impressions. It's been confirmed as being on the way, but how soon after launch that will be is anyone's guess.

    According to the first review, there is already a youtube app (and twitter, but who cares about that, lol) in the marketplace.
    The lack of flash is a big one for me.

    Lots of impartial information, but no real opinion that I've seen. Unless you've seen something I haven't?

    The delay thing was my mistake, I mistook the date of an article for this year, but it was from september last year.

    In depth looks at the features and the interface without opinion.

    There's nothing (that I've seen at least) to say it's great, only one person has stepped up and said it's bad at this time. Not just bad, resoundingly, suicidally bad. And yet, I think we should still wait and see.

    ???

    Maybe that's because most tech 'journalists' are professional enough to reserve judgement until they're reviewing an actual finished product.

    And anyway, even if they haven't been including CONCLUSION paragraphs in their previews, you can easily read between the lines.

    The core interface and functionality is solid, particularly for a V1 OS. But they'll need to get busy after launch bringing it up to spec with iOS and Android, ie. apps, multitasking, etc.

    That's what I've inferred from the majority of the previews I've seen, and if you ask me that's not an unreasonable position for WP7 to be in on day one.

    That's my point exactly.

    Are you looking for a fight or something, because whether you realise it or not, you're champing at the bit against someone who agrees with you.

    The only reason I keep checking this thread is for some fresh information, as I'm as interested to see how it works out as the next guy.

    Fair enough, I'll give over. I just detected a little contrariness in some of your previous posts, seemed like you were giving that one Guardian article way too much credence. If I've taken you up wrong, apologies.

    No problem, it's better to have an open mind about stuff when, in truth, no one who really knows what it's like is letting on beyond a cold technical perspective.

    I'm holding out for a few reviews from respected places.

    If was like iOS is to MacOS X then WM7 may have some chance. Basically, you'd want Winamp on it, and Outlook, but they actually need to be instant access and work. Although the previews look nice, I am loath to believe that they are anything but hype until seeing the UI useability in proper reviews for speed of response.

    The problem for me is I can see MS following Apple and making it walled garden, but without the quality or quantity of apps.
  • Deleted user 13 September 2010 21:49:58
    That appears to be the plan. I don't see how it is a bad thing though, coupled with their Xbox Live pedigree they could actually do something with it.

    I respect everyone's views, although I believe that the Windows Phone 7 will over-deliver and shock everyone. There are many reasons for this, but I won't get into too much detail. On a side note -- for those who do not despise Microsoft per se, have you seen any places to get cases once the phone comes out? I found one site, but nothing else. Site for Windows Phone 7 Cases

    I think MS did a job with the XBOX but compared to Sony their massive. Google will be a much tougher nut to crack, I'm sure I read that Android were outselling IPhones in the US.

    This is a battle that Google can't afford to lose. When using Navigator on Android and seeing Street View I had that sudden feeling 'ohh that's why they did that.'

    The problem is that Android is becoming a low budget OS while the iPhone is still selling much better to the "richer" crowd. So APple makes some good money.

    MS have completely missed the boat on this and really should consider just leaving this space altogether. As DB and greggy point out this has been discussed at length in various demos and previews and it does indeed look and smell like turd of the unpolished kind.

    Android on the other hand looks like it's definitely the way forward (assuming they can capture hearts and minds with Android Market).

    How can people say MS missed the boat!!!! Android took well over 18months to come out once Apple was dominating the Market and they are now playing ball bigtime! I think it's potential is already there! Xbox integration Wooooh!

    I don't see that as a problem as such.

    I think Apple will survive or even thrive they have a proven track record in the PC market and a very loyal following. For the mass market then I think Android will dominate, their after the search traffic on smart phones and tablets that will inevitably get larger as time goes by.

    Not sure on MS their going to have throw a lot cash at it.

    Zune to Expand Multiscreen Entertainment Services Into International Markets


    Zune Marketplace will extend services to several markets in Europe and beyond.

The monthly music subscription service will be available for 9.99 euros /8.99 pounds per month for unlimited download and streaming access to the Zune music catalog and will be accessible on Windows-based PCs, Windows Phone 7 and Xbox LIVE. The offer in the U.S. will remain at $14.99 per month for unlimited downloads and streaming access, with the ability to keep 10 MP3s per month.

Expansion to these markets will enable consumers to purchase MP3s and listen on their Windows-based PC, Windows Phone 7 or any other device that supports MP3 format. Users will also be able to purchase music videos to enjoy on Windows-based PC, Windows Phone 7 and Zune on Xbox LIVE.
