Windows Phone 7: An Early Assessment

ZDNet: Windows Phone 7 – An Early Assessment

Mobile device reviewer Matthew Miller lists his top ten features of Windows Phone 7 but also comments on what is still missing from the mobile operating system.

“I posted my in-depth Windows Phone 7 Technical Preview Guide three days ago and have now passed the one week mark with the phone serving as one of my primary devices. The phone is performing very well and I am already making current device purchase decisions to get myself into a position to buy one from T-Mobile. I wanted to go ahead and list the top 10 features and functions that I am enjoying on the Samsung Windows Phone 7 device while also listing those that could make the list at the time of release.

As you know from reading the various articles on Windows Phone 7, this Technical Preview is quite an improved version compared to what people have seen at trade shows earlier this year. Nearly every person who has used one of these developer phones has said that the OS is very good and looks promising. Microsoft has their work cut out for them to address copy-paste and multi-tasking while also spreading the word about their new mobile OS, which is something they have not been able to do in the past with Zune HD, Windows Mobile, and other technology. They do pretty well with the Xbox so should probably be looking at that team for help.”
