While were at it. Why don't we just ask them to give us all of their products for free. Then we could all turn into superfanboys.

<sigh> a Windows Phone thread in the ZuneHD thread sees more action than threads in the actual Windows Phone forums....

So I'm not so experienced with where its functionality is lacking.
In the market, I believe that if Microsoft doesn't turn around and start pumping out updates faster, WP7 will lose. Mango should have been out in the early months of summer; now, it seems like iOS5 might even release before Mango, and that definitely kills any sort of momentum at all.

I think Paul Thurrott summarizes this problem with WP7 succinctly and effectively. If the development cycle of WP7 doesn't start getting faster, it won't be able to be the king of anything.

Very true, sage427. Dave's a great guy, and he's a good sport, because he's taken a lot of abuse here over the years.

Fantastic! This better not be another one of Microsoft's hollow promises, or I'm done with Windows Phone 7...

Why make the point here when you already dragged up an old thread and correctly added your thoughts to the post in the windows phone section....using 3 and 6 month old links as well?

More posts like that and I will suspect you have an axe to grind....

Shouldn't this thread be in the WP7 section anyways?
Back to the topic, I think what they really need besides an update is more advertising, sure plenty of people have heard of it, but a lot of my friends think WinMo when when I mention it.

(That's not really the intended topic of the thread though is it?)

Yep, and in fact it already is. How does this forum feel about cross-posting, moderator Strider_Aus?

Heh, and there were three before that, I see.

It's a good thing I think that they don't merge these together cuz this has gone off topic so much...

(Off topic yes) But I have to say its the only forum where I have found cool people like Dave and such lenient, nice moderators such as Strider_Aus.

When Medion moderated the Zune forum, he was pretty lenient/nice too.

Hmm... wonder if my HTC Prototype will still connect to the Marketplace... it hasn't been updated in forever.

Its backed by the Tegra 2 chipset. :-) I just couldn't use it cause MS stopped supporting Tegra in the WP7 OS. Not sure why, Nvidia just pointed the finger at Microsoft and said.. "Talk to them about it.. we are just as pissed off as you are on the whole situation." (PR Rep said that "off the record")

Hi Folks. I think I am only setup for moderating the ACTUAL WIndows Phone sub-forum. The OP here was a cross-post (sry) - however I did it because everyone knows Dave in this section, and many would not have read the windows phone forum, or visited - so this was to draw attention to it.

I would prefer all the ACTUAL WP7 discussion to take place in the WP7 section where I will moderate actively

This thread was more for a pointer - and a "help Dave" to his biggest community here in the Zune section

There.
