Windows Phone 7 UI makes iPhone look like a dinosaur

Those are the bold words uttered by Noah Kravitz, editor-in-chief of phonedog.com after spending a brief time with a Samsung developer device, during the GigaOM mobilize conference 2010 in San Francisco. He goes on to say that “the UI is modern while other things like the IOS are looking a little old.” His website does an extensive review of every kind of phone out there so his words carry a certain credibility.  He is pragmatic about the implications of the UI and adds that it doesn’t mean the OS will be successful, but at least he sees the potential. This, once again, (for the millionth time!) shows the huge prospects for WP7 once consumers get their hands on actual devices. The Microsoft rep demoing the phone did not seem to fully know all the details about the OS because he denies there being voice command other than on Bing, but it is in fact available in a limited fashion for voice calling and launching applications. Of note, at minute mark 8:23, after the rep is asked about a front facing camera (in which he shows the rear facing camera instead?) Phonedog  displays a caption that reads “Expect some streaming/Two-way video apps at launch!” Now that is the kind of information that will send WP7 enthusiasts jumping around for joy!
