Last Monday I did something I have not done before, watch a live event for a new product.
That product being Window Phone 7. Was it worth it, I would say yes it was. Balmer was very self contained though you could see he was excited about this new phone OS.
As for myself, hell yeah :), iPhone 4 sold, check, buying a new handset on the 21st, check. What will it be errr not so sure.
Think it will be either the Samsung Omnia 7 or the HTC HD7 (aka the Beast)
Hopefully O2 will also have the phone on PAYG as I don’t fancy another contract, only time will tell!
OK downloaded and installed WLE 2011, so far so good, trying out Live Writer to create a blog entry!
The Live Writer tool is OK, but not as easy as the BlogSpot online tools IMO e.g. the picture below I can’t seem to find an option to add a caption, and the tool does not appear to have an option to show previous blog entries to allow editing…
It also installed the Bing toolbar, jury still out on that! But I only installed that on IE.
Live Messenger has also had a revamp, you can switch to the compact view which I personally prefer, though I still dislike the adverts
Photo Gallery is very good, it also has face recognition ala Picasa 3, think this may be my Photo tool of choice from now on!
