Windows Mobile 7 to ressemble the Zune HD!

From: http://pocketnow.com/rumor/windows-m...zune-hd-kernel




Windows Mobile 7 to be Zune + Phone?

File under: News
By: Brandon Miniman | Date: 19-Jan-10 | 0 Comments

Get ready for more rumors about Windows Mobile 7, this time from MobileCrunch. This time, the rumor is that Windows Mobile 7 will be a very close cousin of the Zune HD in more ways than one. To start, it will run off of the Zune HD kernel. Then, Microsoft will delegate to manufacturers the minimum screen size (which seems strange to us) and hardware specifications that will be required to run Windows Mobile 7.
The article goes on:
The UI looks just like the Zune HD’s with some phone controls built-in. The HD has defined the interface and the use case here, so expect a capacitive multi-touch screen with plenty of media controls.
Now for the nuts and bolts: WinMo 7 has no background processing and will use an Apple-like notification service. There is no system resource access and no threaded processes. In fact, there is no customization at all.
WinMo 7 will not run 6.x code. End of story. It is based on Silverlight and .Net. Everything save a few basic programs will not work under WinMo 7. There is no expectation that this will be a “business device” and the focus is currently on games including some XBox Live functionality for gaming and messaging. There will be a Microsoft App store with an easy approval process.
We've heard rumors that the interface of WinMo 7 would be similar to the Zune HD, but not "just like" as this article implies. We also know (and believe) that Windows Mobile 7 won't feature native application compatibility with 6.x devices, which could shake up the developer community (although some may be excited to have a fresh start).
Either way, what's mentioned above represents rumors that can be filed under the "lofty" column, but given the success of the Zune HD, it's not out of the realm of possibility that they could come to fruition.
Having trouble keeping up with all of the Windows Mobile 7 rumors? Bookmark this page.
Thanks for the tip, Jan.




Not sure if I like this or not. I think Microsoft abandoning the 6.xx format is good. However giving the device no compatibility to 6.xx programs is gonna be a major mistake. Windows Mobile 7 should be a totally redesigned OS with alot of upgrades. I think the Zune features should just be and option, like and App you can add to handle your music, media and marketplace. I think what they are trying to do is make WM7 more like the iPhone. Which is really gonna piss off core WM fans. WM7 should not be a "featrue phone" like the iPhone. It needs to focus on business fuctions as it alwasy has, so it can compete with BB and Nokia devices. Having the Zune features as an options would make it compete with the iPhone as well. Are tehy not realizing that Apple is now constantly addind features to try and make the iPhone more business friendly? Why would MS go inthe opposite direction?

Re: Windows Mobile 7 to ressemble the Zune HD!

This basically means the death of custom ROMs for WinMo more than likely, which will just cement my transition over to Android.

I was thinking this end custom roms as well. However we have alot of talented ROM builders here. I'm sure some will find away to port the features over to 6.xxx devices and allow for custom roms.

Re: Windows Mobile 7 to ressemble the Zune HD!

How does this mean the end of custm ROMs? I don't see where you guys are getting that from.

What I found troubling was the "no background processes" tidbit. I hope that doesn't mean no multi-tasking. I will likely be heading to the Android platform with everyone else if there is no multi-tasking...

Everyone loves to jump on the "sky is falling" bandwagon as soon as possible.

Not everyone. I've been a die hard Windows Mobile supporter all along. I'm just saying if this is true, then I am gone like everyone else. Multi-tasking is something I absolutely need.

Re: Windows Mobile 7 to ressemble the Zune HD!

This is an old post. It was posted well before we learned alot more info on WinMo, more over, the guy posting it had no proof of anything. Just speculation and horrible one at that.

WinMo7 still has obligations to alot of companies that will use this platform for business use. Something like 7 of the top 10 companies in united states has a large mobile platform based on winmo, and these won't work with those obligations, end of story there.

Once WinMo 7 comes out or we know facts, I'm going to post to this guy and call him a retard

I don't think it's true.
