Image Credit: Gizmodo

Ease of use is the strength of the new Windows Mobile OS. With a screen filled with six square icons, you can go to the next block of six icons with a simple swipe. The initial screen has a black background with green and orange icons used to make a call, and an application area that integrates well with the Xbox, Zune media player, and Office.

The obvious weakness of touchscreen smartphones is, as usual, short battery life. Microsoft claims that it can run for two days with normal use. Although, it is not clarified yet, what is considered as “normal use”?

Occasionally, as with Windows NT, we had to wait for a few iterations – until NT4 SP3 – before we can get a fully working OS. And, with the previous Windows Vista fiasco in mind, nobody could blame you for still using Windows XP. But, more than 6 months after the release of Windows 7, it’s become quite clear that there is no reason to postpone until the release of Windows 7 SP1.

A typical reason for holding off on a migration until SP1 is the concern that the new OS will break slowly. That’s not the case with Windows 7.

Many users have been beating the heck out Windows 7 on a variety of configurations and to coin a common phrase, “It just works.” People have tried most mainstream business applications such as Microsoft Office, … Read More
