HTC Surround and Windows Phone 7 OS Review

20 July 2011
  • Excerpt: I know this review is a tad late but considering that HTC Surround 7 is not yet available in the Philippines, I think it should be excused. This review will provide an overview on one of the first ten Windows Phone 7 devices released last year.

Windows Phone 7 Review

10 December 2010
  • Excerpt: There’s a lot of hype about the new Windows Phone 7 operating system and that’s how Microsoft wants it. They’ve done something really special with this revision by completely starting over. This is something totally new and design-wise, something completely different. Unfortunately, you might find some of your favorite features missing in the new OS, but you might also find some new features that you’ll fall in love with.
  • Pros: + Very well designed and completely fresh user interface

First look at Windows Phone 7

Mobile Review
7 April 2010
  • Summary: The system makes the impression of somewhat incomplete, if being not in the initial stage of development it is clearly not in the alpha version, not to mention the beta one. Till the end of 2010 the developers have still enough time to make a lot of improvements in the OS. While what we see now, does not make any impression. Everything is too ascetic, too easy and too familiar. Perhaps this is caused by emulator’s shortcoming.

IM+ for Windows Phone 7 App Review

1 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Since the arrival of Windows Phone 7, one of my more major gripes with it (and I have a lot of gripes , believe you me) has been the lack of an instant messaging client besides the third party serving of Windows Live Messenger. Of course, the future Mango update has taken care of that, as well as Facebook chat, but if I wanted to sign into Gtalk or Skype chat, there really wasn’t an option for me.

26 January 2011
  • Summary: Swish and very, very slick, Microsoft's new mobile OS makes an impressive debut. But it has a long way to go before it can be truly competitive

Windows Phone 7 Review

6 January 2011
  • Excerpt: Windows Mobile 6.5. Oh, how we laughed. Remember the stylus? Remember the apps that looked nothing like the OS ? Heck, it didn’t matter too much and Windows Mobile was still king of the ring. Business users loved it, power users loved it.

Windows Phone 7 review: Microsoft's new mobile phone operating system -- Windows Phone 7 -- is slick, easy to use and well designed.

Good Gear Guide.au
6 January 2011
  • Summary: Windows Phone 7 is far from perfect and is missing some important functionality, but overall this is a refreshing change for Microsoft. Effectively starting with a fresh canvas, Windows Phone 7 is slick, easy to use and well designed. Time will tell whether Windows Phone 7 devices will make a significant impact on the market, but if you're looking for a new smartphone, a Windows Phone is definitely worthy of consideration.
  • Pros: Refreshing UI, excellent performance, excellent Office integration, heavy social network integration, great on-screen keyboard
  • Cons: No copy and paste, no multitasking, limited controls in landscape browser view, no native Twitter support, no Flash support in IE, no DivX/Xvid support, no tethering

Facebook for Windows Phone 7 App Review

19 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Facebook already has a great deal of integration into several aspects of the Windows Phone 7 platform , but where there is an internet connection and a compatible app, there is a Facebook app. The icon is a pretty generic Facebook logo so nothing nasty there and it slots right in to the start screen.
