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.

Windows 8 Doesnt have a management system for what you do/dont want to sync but it Does find all the data on the device (photos for example). To be honest I dont expect music sync until XBox Music is launched.

It also charges the phone happily so thats all I really want it to do, contacts and things are all sync'd wirelessly with the linked accounts (linkedin + hotmail + gmail)
