[Video] Microsoft stoked about RTM release; says Blackberry and iPhone are DEAD

Even we were blown away at this pretty stupid marketing move on Microsoft’s part. It looks as if Microsoft is so stoked about the new RTM (short for Release To Manufacturing) of the Windows Phone 7 OS, that Redmond decided to hold a parade. Now we believe that Microsoft is headed in the right direction, and personally I look forward to WP7 release. But to call out Blackberry and iPhone when both OS’ have been outselling your OS for a while now, is a ballsy move in our eyes. Let’s just hope that WP7 lives up to the hype or Microsoft will never be able to live this down.

[Video] Windows Phone 7 makes public debut

Although this was done at gdgt in Seattle on 7/27/2010, plenty of good indications of how the new Windows Phone 7 are going to turn out.

In interview done at the site of the gdgt.com show, people had this to say about the forthcoming devices:

Two standout remarks were from Android users. The firstI was very surprised. I expected nothing good to come from Windows Phone 7. I’m an Android phone user and it was impressive enough that I might consider getting a Windows Phone 7. The second, “It was cool until we found out it didn’t multi-task“.

HTC Windows Phone 7 features 3.7″ screen, 1GHz Snapdragon on CDMA bands?

Looks like a developer decided to shoot some pics and send them over to Engadget of a mysterious new HTC Windows Phone 7 powered device. The phone sports a CDMA band which would most likely mean Verizon and Sprint as the main carriers for this new WP7 handset. The device itself comes with a 3.7″ Super LCD screen (maybe ala Sony?), 1GHz Snapdragon processor, three touchscreen buttons at the bottom of the screen like on the Nexus One and an 8 MP camera. Nothing is confirmed but if what we see is some more HTC goodness about the hit the CDMA market here in the U.S.A., you can bet we will surely be wanting to take one for a test drive. Hit up the link for more pics. Read more of this post

A look into Windows Phone 7 Gaming prowess

Looks like a Samsung Omnia-type device is floating out there in the wild and has the ability to play Xbox Live Arcade games. It appears that the game is an iPhone game ported over called Twin Blades built by Press Start Studio. Also we are told that this was built by one programmer using 90 percent of the Xbox Live code. What is known is that this handset sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, but not much else is revealed.

As noted by MTW:

It’s the smoothest mobile experience I have ever witness (on par with the iPhone) and it definitely feels a lot better when used on a real handset compared to the desktop emulator.

Dell gives us four new handsets: Lightning, Thunder, Flash and Smoke

In what was an overflow of news yesterday, Engadget reported on four new leaked devices by Dell. The four handsets appear to be Dell’s commitment to a serious push into the U.S. mobile market in a dramatic fashion. Not only are the phone designs unique but so are some of the things under the hood of each device.

  • Lighting – running Windows Mobile 7, a portrait slider form factor, 1GHz QSD8250 Snapdragon processor, WVGA 4.1-inch OLED display, AT&T and T-Mobile 3G, five megapixel autofocus camera, 1GB of flash with 512MB RAM plus 8GB of storage on a MicroSD card (non-user-replaceable, we’re assuming), GPS, accelerometer, compass, FM radio, and full Flash support including video playback.
  • Thunder – An Android 2.1, 4.1-inch WVGA OLED screen, a heavily custom Dell “Stage” UI on top, ties into Facebook and Twitter for social networking, and taps Swype for a touchscreen keyboard replacement, Snapdragon (not sure on spec but presumed same as Lighting), 8 megapixel camera, running a Hulu app and claims that it contains Flash 10.1 for watching web videos.
  • Flash – 3.5-inch WVGA LCD, 850 / 1900 / 2100MHz HSPA topping out at 14.4Mbps down and 5.6Mbps “or better” on the upstream, a 5 megapixel autofocus cam with image stabilization and smile / blink detection, 512MB of RAM and ROM with microSD expansion up to 64GB (Dell’s clearly assuming there’ll be 64GB microSD cards by next year), WiFi, TV-out, 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth 3.0, and a Qualcomm MSM7230 core humming along at 800MHz.
  • Smoke – running Android Froyo atop a 2.8-inch QVGA screen, portrait QWERTY keyboards, Qualcomm’s next-gen MSM7230 processor at 800MHz, a 5 megapixel autofocus cam, 14.4Mbps HSPA, microSD expansion to 32GB, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, and dual-mic noise canceling tech in a 12mm package.

If any of these handsets sound like something you may be interested in, I would suggest to head on over to Engadget and read the full round-up specifications sheets and find out more information on the Looking Glass, a 7 inch tablet, The Streak, Aero and Dell’s complete Mobile Outlook for the future.
