Quick Tip: View the iPhone/Android optimized Gmail mobile site on your Windows Phone 7!!

Gmail iPhone/Android Optimized Mobile Site

FINALLY! Man, this was a big one for me and many others I know that rely on Gmail’s mobile website to quickly check or search for super old emails and perform Gmail-specific functions such as “Mark as Unread”, “Star”, “Report Spam”, and so on. NOTE: I’m using a WP7 device running Mango and with the latest IE9 mobile – so I don’t know if this will work for those without Mango. If anyone can try […]

And so it begins! Nokia & Microsoft Windows Phone 7 team up to fight the big boys!

The interwebs are going crazy right now – and for good reason! Nokia and Microsoft have just announced that they will be forming a strategic alliance which will result in Nokia incorporating Microsoft’s new Windows Phone 7 operation system in all new Nokia high-end devices. People keep asking me why this is such a big deal… so I’ll explain. Apple’s iPhone is quite clearly the undisputed king of the new smartphone era. Google’s Android devices […]

Windows Phone 7 Google Reader mobile site

The first problem – is that the Marketplace doesn’t tell you which ones are free in the search results (ugh). So I ended up going through each and […]

Browser Deathmatch with Windows Phone 7, iPhone 3GS, and BlackBerry Torch

Well it had to be done sooner or later – and I figured there’s no better time than now to pit my slick new Windows Phone 7 against an iPhone 3GS and BlackBerry’s all new Torch 9800! I decided to take the casual, non-scientific approach to this speed test – just to see how the different browsers stack up to one another. The iPhone has always had a really solid browser, and there’s no denying […]

The “Super AMOLED” Screen

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 […]
