Doesn't WP7 support full hardware acceleration?

That's 3% of android devices ... which is like 75x WP market share

Question for you WP owners. I dont know whats going on. I sent pic from my Samsung Vibrant on my phone to my email, it is a 5mp camera and the pic is big, file size is like 1583kb. Now i sent a pic from my HTC Titan 2 which is 16mp camera and the pic is smaller size and file is 523kb how is this possible?!

it depends on the size, quality and complexity of the image.

are the settings roughly the same? I can't imagine a photo that's only 523kb being very good at that resolution.

edit: or I misunderstood the question and they're being resized in the email client like PG2G said.

Looks like images are resized when sent via email. I have an image that sync'd over Zune that is ~900k, the same image is ~400k in an email i just sent to myself.

So if i sync it it will be noncompressed or what? There is no way to send via email full size? I will try this out later and see, thanks

I don't really use twitter. But w/e @xpforr

Also I was watching the first iPhone keynote that was back in 07. And I am just kinda weirded out by how far weve come from then. And how unchanged iOS is.

But NO devices have been confirmed to run that! And looking at android update history we'll be well into 2013 with the spring update for WP.next out before you will actually see it on phones.

I was in that situation... I moved to ATT after I swore I wouldn't. I greatly prefer Sprint and T-mobile over Verizon and ATT. But I knew I was done with android and iOS so I had to go where the phones I wanted were.

Hint: It's not.

It wouldn't make sense anyway, because it's a developer conference and Tango devices are already out there.

I seriously might go to this. I'll probably be in the area anyways. It'll add another 200$ or so, since I'll have to change my plans to get to seattle....hrm.

Whenever I see a SkydDive review for Windows Phone on tech blogs, they only talk about the app. That's fine, since its a damn good app, but for documents, the built in integration in the Office hub is simply superb. I've used the desktop app at home to move my school work and other important documents, and they appear in the Office hub and I can view them, edit them....no app needed and its super seamless.

I guess the focus for these blogs is on consumer stuff like pictures and music, but for me, the Office hub integration is what makes the SkyDrive updates so compelling. I always loved that OneNote worked so easily across all my devices (laptop, desktop, phone), but before the SkyDrive update, treating documents the same way was just obtuse and dumb, I hated the web interface and hated the uploading process. The desktop app took care of all of that.

Well the problem is that no one who reviews this stuff actually uses it as their main phone. I'm convinced that 99% of people who own and use Windows Phone every day know more about how it works than the vast majority of people who review them.

Still today I hear regularly on podcasts like TWiT and Tech News Today people who practically know nothing about how Windows Phone works.
