Another question that cropped up in lieu of the recent news regarding the first 50 days of wp7 sales vs wm
WM does have a higher marketshare currently than wp7. What does microsoft have planned for improving marketshare for wp7 for the immediate long run?
Has microsoft seen success with the "really" commercials and the current advertising campaign targeting wp7 to mostly business users, parents, and professionals?
Why didn't microsoft emphasize marketing toward an adolescent/early adult demographic like apple iphone and (in a lesser extent) android?
Microsoft has a giant molehill to climb to get back into the mobile race. Much of that begins at standardization. While hardware is standardized, there is not a standard experience because both carrier OEMs continuously denigrate windows phone and force people to go to android. Will US carriers receive proper training to sell wp7 like they have been given for the apple iphone?

Two questions:

Direct Sync with Outlook and Zune? when?

How can we reformat micro SD cards that did not work in the Samsung Focus?

Nothing on any of the other "gadget" or phone sites about Microsoft releasing news today.


According to a report in France, the update will come on 2/7/2011; maybe this is the announcement for today.:dontknow:

We all know that the Microsoft WindowsPhone7 update should be coming soon and now we have a rumored landing date: February 7.
Of course, this date for the Windows Phone 7 update is just a rumor swirling around the Internet and it’s attributed to unnamed sources, so we have to take that for what it is.

I would take that as a rumor and not an offical word...I've read the same thing on a few sites all taged with rumor.

Edit: 5pm EST, I guess there is nothing going to be said today, Very disapointed as I was looking forward to info I read here but, could not confirm on any other site.

When will Verizon get a Windows 7 Phone.

I know this has been asked several times but with the number of people asking maybe they will understand how important this is to us.

I'm a business user and need Exchange, Word & Excel on my phone. I'm always cutting and pasting phone numbers from emails into the phone or just cllicking on the number to call a client.

Our company has a company that uses only MS software, IIS, SQL, IE, etc.

As a side note how about a real IPad competitor?

Could you please ask him what this "big news release" was because it never happened and still has not happened ?

Was looking forward to it and it's a major disapointment that nothing ever came.

I just got the word!

Microsoft will be pushing the news on Friday, which means our podcast will have the exclusive news BEFORE it is even out!!!

Now you will all HAVE to go.

nice! I REALLY hope it is an announcement about a) the update being released and b) CDMA phones.

As Monday is the 7th (rumored day of release) then a Friday announcement sounds right
