"Ah, so you've just been given a Windows Phone 7 handset. If that's what you'd been begging for all this time, then many congratulations; but if not, don't hit eBay just yet -- sure, WP7's range of apps is comparatively limited with its recent 5,000 milestone, but hey, you gotta start somewhere, right? Even at its infancy, WP7 has proven to be a nice alternative choice if you want to stand out from the rest of the smartphone crowd, and don't forget its two powerful weapons: Zune and Xbox Live integration. Until WP7 gets its major upgrade early next year, our holiday guide should keep you and your new phone going for a little longer."
If you were one of the lucky ones to receive (or, ahem, purchase for yourself) a brand new Windows Phone 7 handset recently, then Engaget has a great list of apps you should consider loading on board. You'll find the standards, like Facebook, Twitter, and The Weather Channel, but there are some additional apps that you might just overlook during your first browse through the WP7 maketplace. GoVoice and Pictures Lab are two of the latter variety. Our Read link takes you directly to the recommendations.
