  • I am thinking the real issue was

  • with the htc incredible running android and for sale at $199 april 29 on verizon, i wonder how the winpho7 hardware will seem 6+ months from now - already 6+ months behind the eight-ball? msft had to announce something when it did. and we can expect some happy surprizes from additions to the software come the release. i just hope that the hardware we see it running on is up to date or ahead of the curve compared to what is then available from android and apple. in nature speed = survival. so too in technology. similarly, i would expect to see some new and faster hardware running winmo 6.5 available during the summer or sooner. that would help prove that the winmo platform is not dead. but, i don't remember coming across any announcements. does anyone have info on this they can share?
  • Pretty interesting post.I was wondering this only.I believe Microsoft is very well aware of all this an is engineering Windows 7 in a much improved manner. Thanks for this thoughtful image.
  • Windows 7 turns out to be good as the initial reports, Microsoft might stay with the straight forward number scheme for a long time.
  • The interface of Windows 7 is great but in my opinion Windows XP is still a very solid and stable operating system. Right now, I would never give up XP for Windows 7.
