Windows Phone 7 Series – ask your questions!

WP7-logo I’m sure that I wont have to remind anyone that Windows Phone 7 Series (what we all thought would be Windows Mobile 7) was announced just last in a Microsoft press conference held at MWC in Barcelona.

Personally I’m really looking forward to seeing Windows Phone 7 Series for myself, particularly the ‘Live Tiles’ and the 5 hubs.

Now I bet you have a lot of questions about Windows Phone 7 Series which is great because Microsoft have granted us an exclusive Twitter interview this week. We’ll be talking to Alex Reeve, Director of Mobile Business Group in the UK, via the Windows Phone twitter account. The interview will take place on Thursday 25th February at 12 Noon. I will be asking the questions and Alex will reply in real time.

So follow me on Twitter @TRACYANDMATT and the Windows Phone Twitter account @WINDOWSPHONEUK to see both sides of the conversation.

Please submit your questions via This Forum Thread and we’ll ask Alex Reeve the most appropriate ones during the interview. If you miss the session live we’ll also post a copy here after the fact.

Sony Ericsson Aspen preview video

Sony-Ericsson-Aspen-a It was a few weeks ago now that we first saw the Sony Ericsson Aspen (aka Sony Ericsson Faith) in an official press release from Sony Ericsson. At the time I think there was perhaps more of a buzz around the fact that it had been announced with Windows Mobile 6.5.3 than the actual device itself but I could be wrong!

Personally I was quite interest in the hardware, there aren’t too many Windows Mobile devices with a fixed forward-facing QWERTY keyboard and there are even fewer to also have a touchscreen even if it is only QVGA.

As I’ve already mentioned, the Aspen has WinMo 6.5.3 and was the first to be announced with the latest incarnation of Windows Mobile and also the first to actually go on sale with the new OS. A few other handsets have since been announced with 6.5.3 but no other on sale as yet.

As you know, James was at MWC last week and not only was he able to have a look at the Aspen but he was also allowed to bring one home for us to review. I’m starting off here with a preview video which is in place of our normal unboxing video but as there is no proper box with this prototype unit I wonder if we can really call it an unboxing video!? In either case you can find the video below where I’ll show you around the device as well as booting up in to Windows Mobile and have an poke around with the user interface.
