Windows Phone 7

So … I got an email the other day from someone at Microsoft. He was like, “Hey, you’ve got a nice dice app! What do you think of porting it to Windows Phone 7?” And I was like, “What? I don’t know anything about it.” Then he proceeded to tell me all about it and offered to help me get started.

As it happens, there’s a one-day workshop in learning how to write an app for Windows Phone 7 this coming Saturday in my general area. So I’m going to check it out.

Do you know anything about the Windows Phone 7? Are you thinking about getting one? If Mach Dice was available for it, would you buy it?

    Not sure if that’s enough to save Windows 7 Mobile, but for sure it’s a good start, still at least in my general area (yeah I do realize it doesn’t mean much) there are really really few Windows Mobile smartphones going around (any version), considering also what service providers are offering, I’d say that the market is evenly split among Android and iPhones.
    (Considering the provider that offers the greatest number of smartphones to choose from, 6 are different iPhone models, 4 are BlackBerrys, 1 uses Symbian, 4 use Windows Mobile (mostly 6.5) and 24 use Android.
    With the ones usally suggested by employees usually being HTC Desire, Samsung Galaxy S and iPhone 4 (I just went to check today :P)

    I know this info isn’t really that meaningful, but hope it helps.

    Yeah, it’s hard to say what kind of impact the Windows Phone 7 is going to make. They’re certainly throwing their resources behind it, though. At the very least, I’m hoping it will shake things up a bit.
