One of the world’s most popular mobile phone game, Angry Birds, gets even better. Starting April 6th you can continue “destroying the pigs in the play field” even in your Windows Phone 7 device as well. Angry Birds is already the best selling game of all time for Apple iOS, and with a total of over 50 million downloads for all platforms (Android, Symbian, Maemo, PSP, Windows, Mac OS X), this certainly looks good for Rovio.
What you see isn’t a Windows Phone 7 hack on an iPhone. Instead it is just a Windows Phone 7 theme that makes your iPhone look like as if it is running the OS. Called OS7, the theme is currently available in beta and can be downloaded from here. You can install one by following the steps below:
Every employee of Microsoft will get a new Windows Mobile 7 phone. That’s a real good way to show appreciation, as well ensure that employees stay focused on the new mobile OS. Does this mean any MS employee who is a fan of Android or the iPhone, will abandon their current phone? Well…probably not.
If you have watched the popular Old Spice video/commercial featuring Isaiah Mustafa, then you may also like to know that even Microsoft couldn’t resist his rather unique manly persona. Mustafa has been recently seen to appear in a Windows Mobile 7 launch ad in Australia.
Microsoft’s much publicized Kin has its fate sealed. The company recently announced that it will no longer manufacture this new line of mobile phones. And it has been just over two months since its launch. Kin was targeted to a younger crowd and focused more on social networking and media. Obviously with the current competition from Apple and Google’s Android, it clearly didn’t have a chance and failed miserably in sales.
Microsoft revealed quite a few changes in the upcoming Windows Mobile 7. Considering that the current two leaders, Android and the iPhone OS didn’t quite keep any room for a third companion, Windows Mobile 7 will need some thing really unique to make a stance. A good example would be Microsoft Office. The Redmond giant recently revealed the first two videos of the upcoming Microsoft Office (Mobile) that will be integrated with Windows Mobile 7.
If you were betting on Windows Mobile 7 but the idea of not having “copy-paste” broke your faith, then here’s some good news. As per someone “close to the den” the plan was always to include the feature, but the company had to eliminate that from the initial launch, to fulfill the 2010 launch target. As per a trusted source, Microsoft does plan to put this feature, which will eventually come as an ‘update’.
