Windows Can you believe it's been only six months since Microsoft first unveiled its brand-new and most likely last-ditch effort to regain some significance in the smartphone market? Well, today the company announced that the Windows Phone 7 Developer Tools will go gold September 16, and applications submissions will be accepted from early October onwards.

The Zune is an example of this. Once again, not a bad product, but without any of the qualities that make the iPod so compelling. Qualities which seem to be invisible to Microsoft designers.


Can you give some examples of the qualities? After using both iPods and Zunes, I feel that the Zune devices and software offer a better experience. If given the choice, I'd choose a Zune over an iPod. In fact, I use my Zune exclusively and my iPod now belongs to my son.

Windows Phone 7 will have a Zune Interface and I know several people, myself included who are interested in seeing that in person. XBox Live on their phone is something else many are anticipating.
