If you wake up in the middle of nowhere--or have to work regardless of the weather--you can get a lot done with a Windows Phone. That's because it gives you lots of ways to reach people. In this video I show you some of them --including how Windows Phone lets you text by voice, send group emails, and stay completely connected to Facebook. Watch:
Everything shown in in Part 1 is built-in to a Windows Phone. If you want to know more about these features, click these links:
Part 2, featuring Office Mobile and Lync is now posted.
First of all; I'd like to wish you a very good & prosper 2010 Mr. Thomas! (knowing that you actually read the comments on your posts).
To me this is one of the lesser fun videos, no offense. Its entertaining, sure, but a little bit too much over the top for me. Most of all you didn't show much which hasn't been already demonstrated many times on the net already.
In all honestly, to me the Windows phone is something which kind of appeals to me but when I check up on the details I get a little hesitant again. In the overal I think the interface looks good. Might need taking used to, but then again; when moving from OpenOffice to Office 2010 I also had to get used to certain aspects yet it took me no longer than a few weeks to feel right at home.
Still; the bits which are concerning me so far (but then again; I consider myself to be a geek; so I have no doubts what so ever that my expectations or maybe even demands are most likely a bit higher than standard)... I've been quite the fan of Windows mobile 6 (own a toshiba portege G900 for quite some time now; it never failed me) but some new aspects I'm not too sure about.
My main gripe being connectivity. With a little fiddling I can (relatively) easily sync my portege with Office 2010 (can you imagine? It was build WAY before Office 2010 even existed!). All with the use of either a USB cable, my Wifi connection or bluetooth (sort off). Heck; when using wifi I can even easily pick up files from shares which I've defined on my Windows 7 PC.
That is something we can no longer do with WM7 and quite frankly I'm not too sure I'd be enjoying that. In order to get files on the phone one has to upload those to skydrive first. On one hand that's something I can understand, but on the other...
If I can write up a Word macro which gets information straight out of Outlook 2010; why can't the windows phone ?
Alas; that is my stance on the matter 8-)
Right, my apologies for me being a little pre-occupied when I wrote the above reply. Obviously I meant to write "A very good and prosper 2012" yet I guess I got a little side-tracked somehow.
Thanks for the comments, Shel. I don't know of any macro, in fact, the phone does not register on a computer so you can't drag and drop.
To save docs: Anything mailed to you can be easily saved to the hone (so you could mail yourself if you wanted). With the recent update to SkyDrive (see: http://aka.ms/xgutio), I have found saving stuff--andorganizingg it--there is a lot easier. For most documents for home, I just automatically save in SkyDrive instead of on my laptop. Took a little getting use to, but Office 2010, makes it pretty easy to save to the cloud.
Hi, you actually can transfer files using a USB cable, you wifi connection if you run the http file server on your PC. I made a little app called PC File Download to provide a easy to use user interface on Windows Phone 7. You can have a try with it. I am happily doing what I used to do on Windows Mobile 6.x with WP7.
Thanks for the tip--I just downlaoded your app and will give it a try.
