Windows Phone

Thanks to WinRumors.com I received yesterday my Windows Phone. First I have to say: @tomwarren (@winrumors): thank you so much!

There were some problems: the first Windows Phone was (I guess) stolen on its way to my house. So a big FUCK YOU to bpost or royal mail or whatever company came in touch with the package.

With some delay and several tweets, a new (!!) package with a second phone was sent and arrived yesterday:


(Date and sender’s signature: 6-5-11)

I’m really impressed with the brightness of the Super AMOLED display and the look and feel of the Windows Phone user interface/experience (UI/UX).

Several people have already played with it and they were suprised how fast everything works. (I have noticed that some of them will actually buy one very soon 😛 ).

Updating and syncing goes very easy with the Zune software. This is a screenshot just before the “Copy and paste” update:

Now let me find my Visual Studio to create some Windows Phone apps! 😀

Thanks WinRumors.com !

Montage for Bing? (update)

I have no idea if this is new or not, but I’ll post it anyways..

Montage is already released to the web by Fuse labs, but now I found a Montage inside Bing (link – see screenshot). It looks like microsoft is now testing with montage inside bing. Users can create and publish a montage and share it.
I hovered with my mouse over the “Make your own” and you could see the link at the bottom: http://bingmontage-int.cloudapp.net/montage/WhatsMontage/
