This time it’s Donald Bell from Cnet who’s sharing his thoughts after playing for an hour with Microsoft’s lastest PMP. Looks like Microsoft has a winner on their hands. Here’s what he said about the browser:
Speaking of Wi-Fi, the Zune’s new Web browser smokes. Not since first using the iPhone have I been this impressed with a mobile web browser. There’s no branding on the browser, but I was told it was cooked up by Microsoft’s Internet Explorer team (makes sense). Page load was snappy, and pinching and reorienting pages work just like the iPhone and iPod Touch. You also get a fast on-screen keyboard with a nice little magnifier effect with each keystroke. The only bad news on the browser is that there’s no support for Flash audio and video content. So Pandora and YouTube are out, but I was able to get onto Facebook and Twitter.
This can’t only be seen as good news for the future of Windows Mobile 7!
