Windows-Mobile-71

It has been announced that Windows Mobile 7 is going to start appearing as an item on the Microsoft event planners. So it looks like we will finally get a look in on what the new system will offer to users!

We could also expect to see the UI that the Zune phone will be running, as it is promised to be a “Zune based UI” running off of WinMo 7.

After these scheduled announcements we can expect the news on WinMo 7 to be pretty free flowing with definite answers on the feel of the OS rather than just rumours on what it could be like.

Microsoft ready to fight back

Windows-Mobile-71Microsoft are getting ready to fight back by teaming with some OEM manufacturers. Lets see if they can make their Windows Mobile range more friendly.

You may have seen the post I made yesterday about the Zune phone, and that it will be a Windows Mobile device, but hopefully Microsoft can make the device more appealing by teaming with these OEM manufacturers.

Rumours have also appeared that the new Windows Mobile 7 will be much friendlier to use and offer “a more Zune-like” experience. If Microsoft can do this successfully then WinMo 7 will definitely be more user friendly, and it would also be a perfect match up for their Zune phone (which could be what they are designing it for?). So maybe Microsoft are still in with a fighting chance at building their fan-base back up.

The Zune Phone?

ZunephoneCould this be the answer to Microsoft’s problems? It really is no secret that most people in the world are happier using phones with a simple OS, compared to using the different variations of Windows Mobile.

Everyone can see the success of the iPhone from Apple, nowadays you can’t leave the house without seeing someone fiddling away with their iPhone! So Has Microsoft decided they want to assault this avenue of the phone market? A smart-phone based off of their own MP3 player… the Zune?

Being honest, I have never personally seen anyone who owns a Zune, so Microsoft could fall at the first hurdle, being that people won’t even know what a Zune is and therefore not trust the brand over, say, the iPhone.

MSN logoIf you are anything like me then you will be the kind of person that has unlimited data usage on your service plan for e-mails, Facebook, Twitter, Skype and MSN. My personal favourite being Skype.

Just recently for Windows Mobile, updates for the MSN application and the Facebook application have been released. So if you are the kind of person that keeps in touch with your friends and co-workers via these services then I’d go and get these updates!

Windows Live is available here.

And the new Facebook app is available here.

LG's Windows Mobile 7 beast!

LG logo

Just a quick post today, relating to something I found monday night, regarding the LG phone that has been announced to run Windows Mobile 7.

I have just stumbled across what this phone will be packing hardware-wise (and yes forgive me if I’m slow).

So far we have news on the 1.3 GHz Qualcomm processor! Just to give you some idea of how powerful this is, it’s almost on par the the Intel Atom processors that companies such as Asus put in their Netbooks, clocking at 1.6GHz. In a device 1/10th the size, 1.3GHz is a staggering speed!

LG’s Windows Mobile 7 Phone.

LG logoLG Electronics have been working on their own device, which they plan to run Windows Mobile 7, and they are saying that it will be available in September 2010,providing we see WinMo 7 sometime before then. If not then I would expect it to be running WinMo 6.6.

There have been rumours, however, of delaying WinMo 7 until 2011. Yet another possible delay from the people at Microsoft. Still LG are possibly the only maker to announce a month for their phone to be running WinMo 7.

One thing I think we can expect from LG’s device is that it will look stunning. I think every one of their phones I have seen I would be happy owning myself, just based on the looks! And if it is going to be running WinMo 7 it will need to be punching some high numbers.

Windows Mobile 6.6

Windows-Mobile-71

As consumers wait the long years for Windows Mobile 7 to show it’s face, we can all be entertained and happy (?) with the new Windows Mobile 6.6!

The main feature of this update is that WinMo 6.6 will be updated to allow for the full capacitive touch screen experience. Some users have expressed disappointment with certain previous versions of WinMo 6. I expect we will see the 6.6 update soon, as MS just recently updated WinMo 6.5 to 6.5.3, but how much longer will we have to wait for WinMo 7?

It does seem however that the competition for smart-phones in the market is taking it’s toll on Microsoft’s Windows Mobile, with Vodafone dropping the Xperia X2 from their 2010 catalogue saying the device was too hard to deal with, and I expect other devices will follow across the board. The HD2 was even moved from their direct sales and is now only available to business buyers.

HTC HD2 and WIndows Mobile 7

htc_touch_hd2-140Yet another gem about the HTC HD2, and as my source says, the HD2 is “almost certainly” getting the WinMo7 upgrade.

It’s not really surprising given the facts for this device that it should be one of the first to get the update, as I have mentioned in my previous reports it’s the only device so far (at least to my knowledge) that has met with Microsoft’s “hardware requirements”.

So we can expect to see the HD2 “almost certainly” supporting WinMo 7 sometime soon. I think the next step would be for us to wait until the people at Microsoft give the thumbs up for WinMo 7, seeing as it has been pushed back a fair few times.
