Windows Phone Live Keynote with Steve Ballmer and Joe Belfiore

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Windows Phone Events" @ 08:23 AM

As I watched the Windows phone live keynote, I figured I'd take some notes to share with Windows Phone Thoughts readers. Enjoy!

  • Everything is based around Live Tiles
  • All devices will be capacitive touch with "big, beautiful screens"
  • The device will know the people you care about and what they're doing
  • It has a slide-up lock screen just like the Zune HD
  • Works with "Hotmail, Yahoo Mail, and other mail services"
  • If you want to remove someone from your home screen, you "broken heart" them - just like on the Zune - and it removes the tile. Cool...and somehow appropriate.
  • The calender provides multiple views - everything you've expected from previous phones. They seem to support some sort of merged or multiple calenders. They showed personal and work items - I hope they allow for multiple Exchange calendars. I want to finally be able to see my wife's Exchange calendar...
  • Super fast UI performance - this is crazy. The device has video out - I suspect all Windows phones will have video out as part of the base spec. Read more...

Microsoft at CES 2009: Keynote Highlights

Posted by Darius Wey in "Digital Home Events" @ 03:45 AM

After a few minutes of beatboxing and a seemingly enthusiastic Gary Shapiro introducing Steve Ballmer on to the stage, Microsoft's keynote was under way. This was Ballmer's first keynote at CES since taking over from Bill Gates, who delivered it for the first time almost 15 years ago and has traditionally done so up until last year. The question on everyone's mind was whether this keynote would be as memorable as the last. In a time when the very word, "recession", strikes fear into both consumers and businesses, would Microsoft have enough up its sleeve to turn 2009 into a year of ambition, innovation, and prosperity?

Robbie Bach's Keynote at CTIA Wireless 2008

Posted by Darius Wey in "Pocket PC Events" @ 12:55 AM

CTIA was where it all happened - the unveiling of Windows Mobile 6.1, the parade of devices running said OS, and the showing off of other bits and pieces that you'd expect to see at a mobile and wireless trade show. Robbie Bach, and a few others, were at CTIA to do the unveiling, so if you're interested in reading or watching the keynote, click here. It's a little over 26 minutes long, or however long it takes you to read a lengthy article, if videos just aren't your thing.
