Seems us Samsung folk (I’m really beginning to regret leaving HTC) are still experiencing issues with the pre-NoDO update (take 2). Pulling the original release, this second attempt was meant to have fixed the teething issues, but alas there are still problems being reported. I’m just grateful we haven’t gone down the Windows Vista/7 route with displaying a notification that we have 130 updates available.
damiao_jr on Twitter has voiced more concern over the updating (through Zune) with attaching the error code that is displayed. WindowsPhoneSupport replied to the tweet with a snappy statement “we are looking into it right now”. Unfortunately, this isn’t an isolated incident, and I truly feel for the WP7 development team right now with the serious run of problems that have been present with the first update.
A good number of us are tied within the realm of Google, mainly for documents and emailing, but how can one explore the goodness of Windows Phone 7 when there is such a strong connection with the search engine giant (which makes Android a more feasible choice)?
Justin Willhite, of UK LifeHacker, has published a killer of an article that should help any avid Google fanboy (or post-Android owner) with the conversion process. It should be noted that the solutions provided by Justin (apart from native mail support, of course) do not support push-notification and must be updated/refreshed manually. So, how's it all done?
We’ve all browsed the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace on our phones. You may have even purchased an app or two directly through the Zune Marketplace on your PC. Both are fine ways of buying something when you basically know what you’re looking for, but what if you don’t?
WP7applist is a website that makes browsing the WP7 Marketplace incredibly easy. Created by Italian videogame enthusiast and programmer Luigi Violin, the WP7applist makes it easy to keep track of new apps as well as updates and price drops to existing apps. We at WPCentral owe many an app’s discovery to this fine site.
As good as WP7applist has been from the outset, things can always improve; today the website received a major update. Follow the jump for release notes and our impressions.
