    I'm glad we've hit it it big with the influencers and the elite of the internet population.


    @Paul Oh yeah, made it to the big time now.

    Oh btw, It's nice in here at the Scotsdale store where I'm living, the internetz iz fast!

    I'm looking forward to the Galaxy S2 with WP7, its a great phone though could be tempted by a Nokia. It'll just be what ever comes out first. Thanks to the WP7Dev folks, I'm currently rocking Mango and there is no going back. Can't wait for the Face Chat Skype Time Call feature Wink


    Well gonna miss Adam when Laura gets back, you should phase him out. Do an ep with all three when Laura returns then he can go in the next. Or, make you and Adam compete for the spot, most camera hits gets to return the next week.


    EDIT: Oh come on though Paul, no-one really "plays" with you on Halo, you are just a camper booo!

    Im really glad to see that Microsoft are going to open more stores in the US! Would be awesome if they could open stores outside US as well =D I belive they are great, because they are able to show products way better than other electronic stores. You remove all the stickers and all the crapware which comes with a computer, which normal stores does not.

    Looking forward to see the new phones running WP7, its an awesome mobile OS! =D

    File is corrupt around the 4 minute mark and stops playing.

    4:23 mark to be more precise.

    I am waiting for my chance to get into a Microsoft store. Looks like you get to try some cool technologies like the Microsoft Surface. Would also like to pick up my Windows 8 tablet from there.

  • JustinJustin

    @ proton2, It's corrupt on the SD version, but works fine in the High Quality version.

    @Justin:I will give the HD version a try. I don't know what the default zune download version is, buts thats the one I tried to play.

  • HD version works fine, stream doesn't work.

  • Front facing cameras are definitely a feature WP7 devices need to make buying Skype worthwhile.
    If the new Nokia phones don't have front facing cameras people all over the world will be complaining (and mocking) MS and Nokia.

    The currently leaked one has a front facing camera, so it's looking good Smiley

  • We need a Microsoft Store in Portugal ASAP !

    Great show!


  • HarlequinHarlequin http:/​/​twitter.​com/True​Harlequin

    Make a note, that if one Mango phone has a front-facing phone they all need to. Otherwise you'll end up with different phones with different features which is what Microsoft is getting away from.

    Odd somewhere I swore I'm hearing "MORE FOY LESS BOYS!" Wink

  • Windows phone 7 is such a great OS. I do feel its not getting the hardware it deserves. I want to see a win phone with the highest possible configuration in the market.

  • HarlequinHarlequin http:/​/​twitter.​com/True​Harlequin

    @Murugan15:True. But as they're not setting specs to be a sort of "lowest common denominator"...they also can't have crazy powerful specs that drain battery life, and that not all OEMs might be able to accomplish.

    I dunno, I don't think the consumer has been bought into the WP7 Mango UI.
    The Block based Home screen, and the tedious Applications list, is a real turn off to most consumers walking into Phone Shops, faced with much prettier Android Phones. Mango and Nokia will still fail to sell until MS realise that typical consumers just don't get their 'Live Tiles' and plain Metro UI concept.

  • JustinJustin

    That's hilarious Jules. You actually think Android OS is more pleasing to the eye than Windows Phone 7... That small, static (for the most part) icons are better than Live Tiles..? Tedious application list? You crack me up! You simply scroll up and down on the list. The difference with Android is that you have more icons going across the screen.

    The one thing Microsoft needs to do is improve their marketing. I have a feeling they are waiting for Mango aka 7.5 to be officially released, then we will see a slew of new Windows Phone ads showing off the Live Tiles, social integration, Sky Drive, ease of use, etc..

  • It is sweet how Adam finished all Paul's sentences.  Wink

  • Mattus and Masukuma:

    You totally forgot the Async code.  Niners are threadalicious!

  • Abdelmoumen BouabdallahMoumen MSP

    Wow! seems like your training has payed off Adam! the last "Double Nine Guy Throw" was COOL!

    Great to see new OEMs for the Windows Phone. Still waiting for Nokia. Any "rumors" on when they might be available?
