3.  WP 7

Microsoft has launched the release of Windows 7 Phone and simultaneously notify the first 10 phones that will be sold. Attendance Phone Windows 7 is expected to boost the prestige of Windows Mobile will keep falling lately. The question is whether Windows 7 Phone can compete with Apple and Android are currently dominate the smart phone market?

Let us try to see several advantages in Windows 7 Phone:

- Live Tiles:

Microsoft claims that the features which can present all the information on the start page (home screen) makes it the only phones that have this feature. Important? Dependent but indeed we can see all the information from the SMS / email entry, Facebook updates and other without the need to click to another menu.

- Office Hub

As we know, the advantages of OS Mobile from Microsoft was to have Office applications like Word, Excel and others and so far is only the OS Windows 7 Phone that provides comfort in terms to work with Office applications.

- Xbox Live

It is also important for those of you who like to play games on mobile phones because Windows 7 Phone can play some games Xbos Live, which certainly is not owned by another phone

- MarketPlace Hub

Just like the Apple Store and Android Market, through MarketPlace we can install many other applications. The question, whether the application is free or must pay? :-)

- Search & Maps featuring Bing

If the Android use the Google search engine, certainly in Windows 7 Phone Bing takes advantage of the Om which is owned by Bill Gates.

If Android has Google Maps, in Windows 7 Phone got Bing Maps that we think are more add-ons compared to Google Maps.

- Email featuring Outlook Mobile

If you frequently use Microsoft Outlook then in Windows 7 Phone is promising features that are almost the same as in Outlook, where many things are integrated in it, ranging from email, calendar and other

- Internet Explorer Mobile

What is needed by seuah browser? Only three words are "fast, quick and fast". Well, if the mobile browser will be as good as Internet Explorer 9 which is fast enough? We'll see.

- Find My Phone

This feature makes you a little peace of mind that if your phone is lost (knock on wood anyway) then through the "Find My Phone" we can find it.

Simply log-in to Windows Live from a PC and then via the web we can do some things started dai lock the phone, delete data on your phone or find the location wirelessly.

Now, if there is an excess means there are also shortcomings, from sources which we read, turns out a lot in Windows 7 Phone drawback is that in our opinion does not make sense.

Then want to know what are the lack of Windows 7 Phone?

- No Bluetooth file transfers

This means we can not send files from or to mobile Windows 7 Phone and seem to have to use a separate application

- No USB mass storage mode

It means we can not see the contents of files on your computer through Windows Explorer directly and must use the default application from the phone

- No Flash or Silverlight support in the browser

Most likely you can not see a video like YouTube and other browsers that are available through

- No. Can not do video calls, video calls like that can be done by the iPhone 4 or can not expect applications like Skype installed on it

- No custom ringtones

Important or not important, it seems quite tedious if many years have to hear the same ringtone.

- No multitasking

It's the most bizarre we thought, why could not remember multitasking is very important for those of you who like to run multiple applications at once at the same time. The problem in Windows Mobile 6 series, multitasking is what makes the Windows Mobile OS is better than another.

- No copy / paste

One more oddity, how could this feature be eliminated, although perhaps rarely used, is still needed.

- No DivX / XviD video support

Indeed a little trouble remembering now a lot of video formats that use the format above, but this could diakalin to convert video formats via the Zune application

- No internet tethering support

Important for those of you who like to use mobile phones for internet connection to a notebook but that has never (like us), this is no problem and most likely there are additional applications that can be used to make your phone as a router.
