Nokia/Microsoft Event, Hands-on Mango Beta 2 – Windows Phone View
Watch our first ever Windows Phone View as we go through the launch of the AU IS12T which is the result of a joint venture between Toshiba And Fujitsu and which will be the first Windows Phone to be launched in Japan and with Mango out of the box. We also talk about the recent announcement of a Nokia/Microsoft event where we all expect to see the fruit of their collaboration in the launch of their first Windows Phone 7. We breeze through the rumors of future HTC, Samsung and LG Windows Phones for September, talk about Anton’s step by step tutorial on how to get Mango on your current device without the need of a developer account, and also about Microsoft’s new tactics to get developers to provide good and key apps to the platform.
In the Bad section we go through the surprising break up between Toshiba and Fujitsu just weeks before the planned launch of their AU IS12T Windows Phone and we also talk about how Skype isn’t yet able to provide its services to their parent company.
All this and more after the break.
