Welcome back to "A Week in Windows Phone 7"! Hopefully we all had a nice, enjoyable week, free of cubicle distractions from the annoying guy you know only as Fred. All jokes aside, let's jump into it:
A Windows Phone 7 commercial from Secret Cinema was posted onto Youtube, promising the "Revolution is coming." Of course, it WAS played before Lawrence of Arabia, so taking it out of context makes things a little confusing:
The Blogger Night in Toronto videos were posted, showing off several Windows Phone 7 apps, including a iTunes Ping like application, except this time, GPS based:
Tested.com got their hands on the LG Panther, which was at PAX10 to demonstrate Xbox Live. Either way, they give a nice video showing off some of the games, as well as the normal hubs we've all seen 100 times:
Oh, and the battery died a few times.
Stepping up to the plate, Gizmodo got images of an upcoming Samsung device, infact the same Samsung device we've seen before. The device was identified as the Samsung GT-i8700, through the settings screen below:
Finally it looks like we have some hardware they really screams "expensive". And say, does the blackness of that screen make it AMOLED? We'll see.
Also, Youtube support was confirmed:
That mysterious Pakistani Windows Phone 7 device was spotted again, this time on a video demonstrating Windows Phone 7 OS. It's also worth pointing out that WMExperts noticed the AT&T logo in the marketplace, making this the 6th device rumored to be heading to AT&T. Does that make AT&T the premiere carrier, or just very bad at keeping secrets? We'll see.
Also, the LG E900 (Optimus 7) was confirmed by MobilityDigest to support 16gb of storage, thanks a shot extracted from a video floating around the internet.
And finally, Microsoft was officially confirmed to be holding an open house on October 11th. Let's hope they have a live feed!
Caught up again? Great. Here's to another eventful week, and be sure to check out WindowsPhone7Central for all the latest on Windows Phone 7.
