We’ve recently posted about some more features of Windows Phone 7 being showed off and in the same note, Greg Sullivan, Senior Product Manager for Windows Phone over at Microsoft walks us through a super complex demonstration of Windows Phone 7 and its features on his Samsung Taylor. The video is split into four parts so make sure you sit back and relax, it is over 25 minutes in length with lots of features demoed.
Without spoiling anything, we want to mention an aspect that is said in this video (with all the late buzz regarding to skinning and customization of Windows Phone 7s). You will have a high degree of customizations you will be able to do with the restriction that one will not be able to skin the whole interface but can create own hubs. Greg Sullivan said “you can’t break out promise to customers about what it means to be Windows Phone but you can add a whole bunch of stuff” and OEMs will be able to build upon these restrictions and limitations, while looking at them in a positive way. For instance, OEMs can add all kinds of sensors, higher than 5 MP cameras, they will be able to add new settings to camera, custom modes even, but they will not take away the cool feature about the viewfinder (sliding back and forth between the latest pictures and the viewfinder itself), “they will add to that”.
Thanks for the tip, Steven.
