Graphics, User Interfaces Ever since I bought my HTC HD7 way back in October 2010, I have been hooked on Windows Phone. Without even being able to test-drive the new operating system (The Netherlands didn't get Windows Phone 7 until a year later), I imported the HD7 from the US - the minimalist, stark, clean, flat, and textual interface spoke to me, and I just knew I would like it. And like it, I did.

<span>Thom, the pointer isn't hidden on touchscreen devices; It's just located someplace else.

It's attached to your hand.</span>


Depends on what Thom meant. If he meant the pointer as implemented in the software, then it is hidden.

Makes using Android for x86 in VirtualBox a pain because you have to choose between "seamless mouse mode" (which fakes a touchscreen and causes Android to hide the cursor) and "old-style mouse" mode where you get a cursor but you have to press a key to release the mouse whenever you want to move it outside the VM window.
