Let’s start with the obvious: once more, Microsoft had to get a new name for it’s mobile OS, so their brand name is basically: worthless.
I haven’t tried it yet, but from what I’ve been reading:
- Cool: rewritten from scratch. Or branched from Zune. About time!
- Cool: Leveraging product application from Zune to XBox.
- Not so cool: IE escaped this rewriting. Something we’ll regret on a near future.
- Unknown: SDK and backward compatibility?
Hope to get one - probably only on 2011. Until then, I’ll continue to suffer with WM6.5.
