Windows This intrigued me. I decided to see what would happen if you plug a Windows Phone 7.5 device - my HTC HD7 in this case - into a Windows 8 machine (the release preview). The answer? Nothing happens. If you combine Microsoft's prime desktop operating system and prime mobile offering, nothing happens. No dialogs, no sync options, no check for updates, no backups, no audio/video transfer, not even a mount or a dialog to download Zune. They've got only a few months to address this.

I've said the same thing before with regards to nothing happening when i plugged my LG E900 in to the PC running Win8.

Now, I can only assume Windows 8 will only native support Windows Phone 8 devices.

Personally I was expecting at least a zune metro app... to say I was disappointed by the lack of apps in metro, you know the thing we're all supposed to get excited about, is kind of an understatement. i raged.
