For many basketball fans March signifies the month where their favorite team has a chance to prove themselves the best in the country in the NCAA tournament. For Windows Phone 7 fans, this signifies the month that their favorite marketplace hit 9000 apps! Matthew Miller over at ZDnet sees the connection though, and has a great post discussing his favorite apps for tracking your teams throughout the tournament, and setting up your tournament bracket.

Matt Miller Investigates Windows Phone 7 Data Issues

I read a couple of reports from Engadget and the BBC that some Windows Phone 7 devices seem to be consuming data at an extraordinary rate. I have been using Windows Phone 7 devices since last July and find this reported anomaly hasn't affected me with the HTC HD7 or Samsung test WP7 device.

Matt Miller over at ZDNET has been looking into the reports of rogue data usage by Windows Phone 7. He has had zero issues while using both the HD7 and the Samsung Taylor on the T-Mobile 3G network. I have also been using the HD7 on T-Mobile and have had zero issues with data, so this could be isolated to AT&T. Have any of our readers encountered any issues with extreme data usage? Microsoft is investigating the issue but whether this is an AT&T issue or caused by a rogue app only time will tell.

Matt Miller Takes Windows Mobile 6.5 for a Spin

"I think the intent of the Windows Mobile 6.5 release was to provide a more finger friendly user interface on touch screen devices, while non-touchscreen devices remain pretty much the same. I believe there were some backend updates and improvements, but there were not readily apparent. There are four main areas where end users will see changes and these are in the Start menu, lock screen, Today screen, and menus. Let's check out each area in more detail."

My friend the hyper-productive Matt Miller - seriously, how DOES he do it? - has his take on Windows Mobile 6.5. And it's about the same as most of the other reviews we've seen today...there's a general feeling of "Really? This is it?". Apple and Google have shown that significant updates can be made to an operating system on a regular basis, and they've raised the bar of expectation. With 6.5, Microsoft has done the limbo right under that bar...without needing to lean back.
