Some small changes in the latest Windows Phone 7 emulator build

Microsoft has recently released an updated build of their Windows Phone 7 emulator, and Rustygrom over at XDA-Developers has noticed the following apparent changes.

    • It seems a bit more buggy. I’ve noticed some odd screen drawing issues and even jaggy lines. Maybe it’s my laptop?
    • Most apps seem slightly updated and more polished. A few quirks here and there.
    • Phone! Yup, you can see the dialer and it even fakes working.
    • Office is actually working. Looks like the apps shown in the videos they released.

The screen shots above show a new entry on the press and hold menu to uninstall applications, the next show the dailer. On calls an unobtrusive drop down allows switching to the dailer from other apps.

More screen shots after the break.
