Actually the tiles are updated via "push notifications" from a cloud server, so the phone isn't polling a server every 2 minutes for new data. It only updates when the cloud tells it to. MS set it up this way mostly for the conservation of battery life.

Re: Now that it's released, is WP7 worth it?

Agreed. I like the looks much better over apple, and googles. Google is just a copy of apples look. Just rows of icons, with some widgets occaisonally thrown in. Very bland.

Uh... "google" looks nothing like IOS. If you're talking about SAMSUNG's interface thats one thing but vanilla android nor sense look anything similar. WP7 took more "notes" from the way Apple does things with this new OS... they just dont LOOK alike.

LOL This proves the point i made in another thread. Most people don't realize what the real android interface looks like.

Re: Now that it's released, is WP7 worth it?

Yep, Android is just a few "homescreens" where you can put shortcuts to apps, and a couple widgets. iOS only differs in the inability to add widgets, and all your apps are on your "homescreens" all the time.

I honestly never saw the "innovation" in iOS. I was using a Treo 700p when the iPhone came out and I thought "change the background to a solid black and this is iOS."

Re: Now that it's released, is WP7 worth it?

I still want to see someone who uses a WP7 phone on a daily use for a business or something else. Day to day with push mail (with more than 1 account would be nice), texts, e-mail attachments (excel/word docs, etc).

Someone must be a hardcore user here who can give the real performace in the real working world...????? Also battery life with active tiles going all the time.

I'll admit, my TP2 is not the worse in this, I have push mail on 2 accounts (hotmail and exchange) and use it all the time, I just hate the speed of the device and over clocking helps but, it tends to lock up a little more than normal..
