Got an idea for a new feature? Suggest it & vote on other new features for Windows Phone 8!

Suggest & Vote on new Windows Phone Features

Do you have the next best idea for Windows Phone 8? Then what are you waiting for!? Share it! And no, I don’t mean you should waste your energy sharing it in the middle of 1500 comments (or 200 or so) on an Engadget review of Windows Phone 7.5 Mango. No, no, no. That’s a terrible idea. Even if the Windows Phone team at Microsoft actually read all the comments on every Mango review (which, to […]

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 […]

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. Essentially, voice dictation allows me to listen to incoming text messages while I drive, reply to them, and even […]

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 […]

so umm, like, what’s a windows phone anyway?

Well, unless you’ve been living under a rock (which, sadly, happens to be the case for 95% of the population), you *might* have heard about a super cool new mobile operating system called Windows Phone 7! Wait, what? Hasn’t Microsoft been in the mobile game for ages with that clunky old mammoth of an operating system called Windows Mobile? Why yes indeed, sir! Except… well, Microsoft felt the same way about Windows Mobile as you […]
