Windows Phone 7 Office Mobile 2010 performance comparison

As we have seen in a previous video, the HTC 7 Trophy is a bit slower than the other devices when loading some applications and games so I decided to check out the Office Mobile 2010 loading performance on the Trophy vs the Samsung Omnia 7 and shot a video that I embedded after the break. The result here is that the HTC 7 Trophy isn’t really that much behind the Omnia 7 (never more that 1 secs slower) and this will definitely not impact the overall user experience. Check it out below:

HTC 7 Trophy Software walkthrough

As a follow-up to yesterday’s Trophy hardware tour here comes the HTC 7 TrophySoftware Tour.You will get a look at the HTC hub plus all the free applications provided by HTC which are accessible through the company’s section in the Marketplace. As I’ve stated many times since we first saw hub in action I don’t really like the fact that HTC just tried to port the already existing Android apps to Windows Phone 7¬†without following the Metro UI guidelines. It may look fancy but all these animations are just a waste of time in my opinion. Check it out after the break:

HTC defends the HTC HD7 antenna issue

HTC has released a short statement to defend itself after it was reported that the HTC HD7 suffered from the infamous antenna deathgrip when held in the hand:

“Quality in industrial design is of key importance to HTC. To ensure the best possible signal strength, antennas are placed in the area least likely to be covered by a person’s face or hands while the phone is in use.”
“However, it is inevitable that a phone’s signal strength will weaken a little when covered in its entirety by a user’s palm or fingers. We test all of our phones extensively and are confident that under normal circumstances reception strength and performance will be more than sufficient for the operation of the phone when network coverage is also adequate,”

So what do you guys think? Sound like a normal damage control statement to me. I guess that as long as there no dropped calls there nothing to really worry about..

Spanish support coming to T-Mobile’s HTC HD7 early next year

T-Mobile has finally responded to the complaints about the lack of multi-lingual support on their HTC HD7 and has blamed the supposedly tight development schedule timelines…Well this sounds like horse me. Anyway, here’s the full statement:

Due to product development timelines, T-Mobile and HTC were unable to include a Spanish-language keyboard in the initial software build for the HTC HD7. We understand the importance of this feature and we intend to deliver Spanish-language keyboard functionality in a software update early next year.
