Microsoft just mentioned in a Q&A session here at MIX10 in no uncertain terms that clipboard operations won't be supported on Windows Phone 7 Series.

Palm Pre Plus (WebOS):
Multitasking - Posted Image
Copy and Paste - Posted Image
Memory Cards - No. We are giving 16GB now. Ok Posted Image
3G Mobile Hot Spot Capable - Posted Image
Flash 10.1 Web Browser Support - Posted Image


iPhone 4g (iPhone OS)(even other versions of iPhone):
Multitasking - Posted Image
Copy and Paste - Posted Image
Memory Cards - No. We are giving up to 32GB now. Ok Posted Image

Windows Mobile 7:
Multitasking - Posted Image
Copy and Paste - Posted Image
Memory Cards - No. We are hoping manufactures will move their device memory to 16GB now (Samsung-SGH-i900). Ok kindof sort of Posted Image

WOW! I thought I heard Windows Mobile 7 was supposed to blow others out of the water. Guess NOT!

Also wanted to add..

GPS turn-by-turn navigation:
Posted Image
There will not be any Bing Maps Navigation or anything of the sort. WP7S, as an OS, will not ship with any sort of navigation application. However, phone manufactures can bundle them in and use Microsoft APIs
to tie it into the phone's system.

Battery life: Posted Image
The development models that are being used differ. Depending which build it's running, or if it's been optimized for performance
or for power saving, results will vary. But, Microsoft will not release the OS until the phone can make it through a full day on a single charge.

You cant add features that have to be archived via jail-breaking as a real feature. Who's to say that there wont be some sort of mod for Windows Phone to support all of that?

Best thing is dont even go towards it. Microsoft proves again that it will copy Apple.

Buy a phone that can do voice calls and sms. Buy a tablet device of choice of preference and use as mobile internet device and games. No platform control.

Awaiting for Hp Slate specs...

LOL! Afzal, I hate you! lol. Not really, but I seriously thought I had my next business phone picked which was the Palm Pre Plus. Now, you are going to have me watching more YouTube videos and comparing on sites to decide either on the Palm Pre Plus or Nokia N900. I'm not worried about the service, because I'm looking to go with anyone. That phone will decide the service.

Thanks :P

@Yanike
Please, GTFO, you havent lived in Russia and in other countries, where is NO Palm Pre, cheap iPhones and other crap. Only symbian, android and winmo. And gtfo again, you're fag.


Uhh, its fine to disagree or hell even argue, but seriously, calling him a "fag" for having his own opinions / comments is TOTALLY necessary and not constructive to the thread at ALL.

OT: The Nokia N900 keeps looking better and better now... now if I could justify its price tag to my checking account :lol:

We'll see what happens

Btw iPhone OS needs to be jailbroken to multitask so that doesn't count and why you gave it a check for memory cards is beyond me.

Currently the WP7S has a better system to allow background programs to update status then iPhone though.
We'll see about the copy and paste though atleast we know it can be added later with a simple update lets hope they do so.
Apple took 3 revisions to do it.

I think I'm going to roll with the Palm Pre Plus. Nokia N900 is a GREAT device, but I hate the phones with side slide keyboards. I got rid of my last phone because of that. I hated having to turn the phone and slide out the keyboard just to type and slide back in the keyboard and turn the phone back everytime I wanted to type something. I like Palm Pre Plus because it's a simple slide up, type and slide down. Also, I like it because it's compact and still has what I need. The screen is a perfect size and the way it's built is awesome. Plus, Palm needs more developers. The 3G Mobile Hot Spot is a seller for me as well :)

Wait what? I hope that isn't supposed to be an exciting feature to y'all?

If making calls is a big feature, then this phone is really sh**.

^^Sarcasm, Yanike ;) . We hadn't really seen any phone calls on WP7 before that video.
Anyway, even though WP7 looks great, I'm not going to be so quick to trust Microsoft after they let me down with my purchase of the Zune HD. I'll wait for some reviews to roll in this time.
