Sending text messages with only your voice: Awesome new WP7 Mango feature

After a full week of playing with the all new Mango beta for Windows Phone 7, there has been one standout feature that I use almost every single day: Voice/Speech Dictation. This feature is absolutely amazing for many of us that use a bluetooth headset/stereo deck while we drive to and from work/school/etc every single day.

The iPhone has always had a really solid browser, and there’s no denying […]

As I mentioned in one of my earlier posts – I really, really dig the Super AMOLED screen on the Samsung Focus. It’s really just one of those features (like the buttery smooth responsiveness) that you have to see in person to really believe. But that most definitely didn’t stop me from trying to throw together a video anyway! I did a quick comparison of the screen on the Samsung Focus to those on the […]

“buttery smooth”

Alright! As promised in a previous post – I mentioned I would put up a video detailing the buttery smoothness of the Windows Phone 7 OS. Well, it turns out my camera (Canon s90), doesn’t take videos as well as I hoped it did – and well, I couldn’t find that mini tripod I got for Christmas a few years back – BUT, I made a video anyway. Feast your eyes on butter: Windows Phone […]
