Boy Genius Report:
Critics have commented on the lack of specific features like copy & paste and lack of 100s of thousands of applications. And while both are true, copy & paste will be available as an update in a matter of weeks (early 2011) and as for applications, it’s just a matter of time.
This should knock those Apple Fanboys down a peg. Nerds! Wait, I'm one of those Fanboys. Ah!
Even still, this news doesn't knock the "no multi-tasking" critique that the phones will still have to deal with. Essentially, these will be able to multi-task just like the iPhone did at launch. The built-in apps like Mail, Calendar and Zune can do things behind the scenes, just not apps that you download from their Marketplace. Bummer.
The best thing about the iOS 4.0 update was that games and apps can remember where you left off and pop back to life very quickly after long periods of time. It gives the impression that the app has stayed on the entire time, when in reality, it just remembers where you left off. Apple, you tricky fellows.
Word on the street is that one of Trigon's own employees will be purchasing a Windows Phone 7 phone at launch. Are you excited? I'm excited. If anything, this will continue to place Trigon as the premiere Windows technical support team in the Philadelphia area.
Take that, Apple Fanboys like myself!
