Windows Mobile 7

 

I’ve been keeping tabs on Microsoft’s usage of the term “Windows Phone 7″ in place of “Windows Mobile 7″ lately and its frequency of occurrence is increasing. Though many of the Microsoft communities have picked up on the term and started using it, seeing it straight from Microsoft only offers confirmation. On January 29, 2010, I found a reference of “Windows Phone 7” on Microsoft’s events website — the Energize IT 2010 event to be held in Canada on March 30, 2010. There, a session titled “From the Client to the Cloud V 2.0″ contained a Windows Phone 7 reference which has since then been replaced with “Windows Mobile.” To recap, here’s a screen shot of the event’s description followed by a link to the event page:

Now, another Canadian Energize IT event has surfaced on Microsoft.com containing the Windows Phone 7 verbiage. Here’s a screen shot (since I’m sure this one will be changed soon as well):

Is it safe to say now that “Windows Mobile 7″ has finally taken a back seat to “Windows Phone 7″ as would be thought to happen with “Windows Mobile” being re-branded “Windows Phone?” I think so. Especially when taking into consideration the fact that they replaced “Windows Phone 7″ with “Windows Mobile” on the event description I dug up back in January. Oh, and @tom_warren (of Neowin fame) on Twitter has a couple of interesting Windows Phone 7 points you may want to take a look at, too.

 

If there were any doubts left in your mind that Windows Mobile 7 / Windows Phone 7 would be mentioned at Mobile World Congress this month, let all of them be cast aside!

  2. My understanding is that “Windows Phone” is the name of a specific platform type, like PocketPC used to be, and that the OS itself will still be named Windows Mobile.

  3. it looks promising
    i am waiting for it

  4. Strong Points: -The people who wrote it are absolutely knowledgeable: They’ve loads of information about nearly every single subject they talk about -Chapter organization: the chapters are well organized as far as the order in which to expose a reader to the topics, creating as much as the subsequent. Weak Points: -In just about just about every chapter, the author(s) regularly mention or compare the subject being discussed with an actual Cisco item. Although lots of individuals agree they make very good merchandise, which includes myself, this book needs to be about the VoIP as a standard (as the title implies), not Cisco’s products. -The author(s) clarify most topics by throwing tons of (or an excessive amount of) information and facts at the reader, such as exceptions to the rule – all within the exact same sentence. A number of the key points are not even mentioned or elaborated on, whilst the author goes to point out small or insignificant particulars. -While discussing the history of Telephony and VoIP technology, using acronyms is unavoidable, but the author(s) overuses them to the extreme. At occasions, you can find synonym acronyms that the author(s) will use randomly and interchangeably inside the similar chart, diagram or sentence; this is highly confusing. Also, there’s no glossary, so you’ve to waste time flipping back through the pages to look up acronyms they spelled out as soon as. Quite a few acronyms usually are not even defined – they are just mentioned as casual speak to define other acronyms (so have your web browser ready). -The author(s) often define topics and acronyms sections or chapters right after they are 1st mentioned. This is also very confusing and frustrating. -The book is filled with charts and graphs. Most of them you seriously need to study to understand simply because they use many little pictures for which there is no legend, and some you flat our will need an electrical engineering degree to know.

  5. I鈥檓 pleased, I must say. Really not usually can i go through a blog that鈥檚 both educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you might have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the problem is whatever inadequate people are talking smartly about. Now i’m very happy which I found it in my search for something relating to this.
