WPCentral Podcast 131

Our pre-Thanksgiving show is in full effect! Jay and Daniel discuss the new AT&T TItan, Nokia's ongoing media campaign, lots of software news including MetroTube, Mehdoh, Nokia Drive (and piracy) and more.

See the full show notes after the break. Sadly, the video from the Live podcast was lost. RIP. (We'll have those bugs worked out for next week).

  • Excellent podcast and very interesting stuff on initial bugs. Just wondered if you guys had seen the issue at the following link. Love my hd7 with mango but this really sucks http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/winphone/forum/wp7-wpmusic/zune-on-wp7-freezes-between-songs/e862bde0-fd1f-471e-9822-5c7a44746390
    If you do go through all the links you can see that there hasn't been much communication back from MS or HTC on this issue.
    Also can someone explain to me why I can't get podcasts through Zune in the UK? Currently using bringcast, which is a good app, but hasn't been mangoed yet so it can be a bit annoying when you get texts etc and have to come out and stop listening. And I'm not going to use the Zune software as I can't stand switching on my PC just to update my podcasts.
  • I don't like that Microsoft don't support all countrys with their products. For example I'm from Slovenia and I can't subscribe to that podcast on zune, also marketplace on Windows phone is not supported here, so I can't buy any app. Those were just two examples. :(
  • I like the santa hat.
  • I noticed you guys discussed something about number of apps that will multitask.
    I have a few comments on this:
    Firstly, I don't think the number of apps/screens is limited to 5 at all.  The number that is in the multitasking screen IS limited to 5, obviously, but using the back button, I have noticed I can access additional things depending on the situation.
    Secondly, the 9 vs 15 thing was never about number of apps that are multitasking.  I believe it was about the number of *background tasks* allowed to run.  I have not hit 9 myself so I can't yet see what mine does.  In any event, I think this is what should be investigated, if you wish to.
