Windows Phone 7 Reaches Technical Preview Stage

Windows Phone 7 development continues at a fast pace. Last week saw the release of the Developer Tools beta, and yesterday came the announcement of the first technical preview. As Terry Myerson blogged, the technical preview means that Microsoft has “signed off that our software is now ready for the hands-on everyday use of a broad set of consumers around the world”.

I don't have a lot of hope for the first phone since it is missing much of what other phones (in particular iPhone) offer. But I hope it is the first in a line of successful phones.

I always hated the Windows Phone OS.

They never seemed to realize that its a PHONE, not a computer, so having a small start menu made NO sense.
I think they need to rethink their approach to the phone platform, and make a very small screen, touch friendly, os.

This version of Windows Phone is more or less Microsoft just playing catchup in the smartphone market. The specs Microsoft have released that the phones need to be are fine really. I couldn't stand WP 6.5, even though phones such as the HTC Touch 2 did make it fairly usable as the phone did have a good touch screen, but navigating small menus was still a nightmare no matter how good of a job HTC tried to do.

I'm in two frames of mind about WP7 though. Going the same route as the iPhone and having a set standard for the minimum specification the phone needs to be is a good idea, as it'll make developing apps for it a lots easier, which is one of Android's main problems although that's starting to solve itself as newer smartphones are coming out with better specifications all the time, it's mainly with older phones now them problems exist, and with Android 2.2 on the verge of release for phones and now the ability to install apps to SD card, I can still see Android being the better choice and it's what I do prefer.
