  • Conclusion: The default apps The default suite of apps – in which I include e-mail, messaging, the browser, maps, media player and Office - all give a pretty good user experience that does essentially what you expect it to without too many quirks.

  • Conclusion: Yes, it's version 1.0, and it's missing some features and plenty of apps. But Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 operating system is already a player in the mobile space.
  • Pros: Gorgeous design. Zune player provides a high-quality music and video experience. Xbox Live gaming has potential.
  • Cons: Doesn't work well in landscape mode. Not many apps yet.

LAPTOP Magazine
20 October 2010
  • Excerpt: Not since Palm's betting-the-farm moment on webOS has a company introduced a mobile platform so radically different from its predecessor. Windows Phone 7 isn't just a departure from Windows Mobile 6.5 and what came before, but a complete reboot.

Microsoft Windows Phone 7

Pocket Lint
18 October 2010
  • Conclusion: It is clear that Windows Phone 7 is an impressive consumer mobile operating system, with some nice touches and flashes of inspiration. We like the refreshing departure from sometimes busy interfaces that you’ll find elsewhere: Microsoft haven’t been scared to use white space and with screen sizes...
  • Pros: Refreshing and innovative design, looks great, excellent use of backgrounds and flowing text, Zune offering looks comprehensive, online find, lock and wipe options
  • Cons: Early days for a new OS, no internet video support, copy and paste not available yet, no Twitter integration, Marketplace and Xbox Live still relative unknowns
