WP7: Landscape and keyboards!

According to this video, you can see there will be support for Landscape mode and keyboards! The demo unit also has an accellerometer, when he rotates it the interface switches from portrait to landscape (about 10:30 in)..

Re: WP7: Landscape and keyboards!

lol i saw when he flipped it earlier this after noon and this was after reading 4 comments posting that there would only be portrait devices and that they probably didn't even build in accelerometers into the Asus WP7 Prototype Phones

I even read someone speculating if the device actually had a battery.. a freaken battery, lol

There's is a glimpse of Pandora App for Windows phone 7 aswell as a few videos out there that briefly showcase the phone dialer.

For some reason people think they we're hiding the dialer, but every time someone i saw asked an MS employee to show the dialer, they said sure no problem, every single time.

big grey dialer with call and save at the bottom, but you can bring up "advanced" option by dragging it up a bit

Don't fret I was first to break the ice at PPCgeeks with Windows Phone 7 Device Images aaand the thread was closed down to redirect traffic to the main page, without so much as a thanks for catching the exclusive as it broke

nope mods, slept well, woke up late, closed the first and only thread with exclusive pictures.

Re: WP7: Landscape and keyboards!

thats what they did with my ipad thread. they tried sayin they created theirs before mine(but i made mine like 30 mins before theirs), and when i showed them that, they tried sayin they had a draft of it. mods think theyre better than everyone else(not all, but some). thats what drives people away from forums. good thing theres forums (like the one in my sig), that are a lot more laid back.
