    It's good to see the back of Ping Show. Laptop was spoiled by the dog? Interesting explanation... I do not know how to respond... to believe? Or not? But yeah... that does explain the missing 127th episode.

    Welcome back strangers!

    Oh Laura, going for the old "dog ate my homework" routine is a bit lame Smiley

     

    All the recent Windows Phone love is fantastic and I look forward to more. From the current rumour mill Nokia (knock-e-a) are giving carrier in the US a custom piece of hardware. So the 900 looks like it's AT&T and Verizon might get something different.

    So.....eh.....what happened to the Halo Match at the end of December?!

    When is Verizon really going to support the windows phone?  Come on already.  BTW, Great show.

    Sorry, but Laura is wrong and Paul is right. Nokia is pronounced as in "knock-e-uh", not "no-key-uh".

    Any British person will tell you that ;-) Even Nokia in their own TV ads here in the UK know how to pronounce their own name ;-)

    It's great that all these well known geeks/bloggers like WP7 but most regular consumers don't care about this. WP7 phones need to be more visible in stores and the employees need to be well educated in how the OS works so they can start selling them.

    Actually, some less-techy friends of mine are starting to say things like, "yeah, I think I'm going to check out the Windows Phone when my contract is up".  They currently have earlier versions of iPhones.  It's pretty impressive.

    That's good to hear. Hopefully Nokia can help Microsoft out with marketing this OS correctly (because MS and marketing usually don't go very well together).
    HTC also seems to still be quite enthusiastic about Windows Phone.

    @prologic:I think it really depends on which country you are in. Norwegians for example pronouns Nokia without any pressure on the O letter as you do in English (According to Paul and how I pronounce it).

    The way Paul said Nokia is how we say it in Australia. Then again Americans mispronounce Mazda badly too. :)
