Windows 7 Phone Hands-On Review!

At Web 2.0 Expo, I had the pleasure of seeing the Windows 7 Phone for the first time live.   Thanks to Anand at Microsoft, I got to see some of the features of the new Windows 7 Phone.  Indeed, it was breathtaking to see another great multi-touch mobile operating system in addition to Android, iPhone, and Palm OS (the 3 best multi-touch OSes in my mind).

The new Windows 7 Phone comes with Zune integrated, internet explorer, and a much different UI experience (it looks like).  I have to applaud Microsoft for making an effort into the 21st century by dumping their older Wind

For those of you who have an HDTV and a bundle of media that’s sitting on your laptop or computer (that you haven’t been able to play on your HDTV or simply you decided to hook up HDMI cable everytime you wanted to stream something going back and forth between your computer and the sofa), here’s a couple HD Media Players you can get to ease your HDTV experience.

Android Multi-Touch Tablet Prototype Hands-on Review! [Web 2.0 Expo]

Today, I was at the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco as soon as it was open (as I blogged about it several hours before).  Upon walking around the exhibit floor, I quickly found Adobe.

Oddly, they were displaying all smartphones such as Google’s Android phone like Nexus One, Droid and the Palm Pre but nowhere was an iPhone nor iPad to be found.

(Sorry, Apple, no free lunch for you at Adobe’s booth this time!)

Upon closer look, I found Adobe had one of the Google Android Tablet prototype running Android OS 2.1 (I believe).

Fastest MicroSD Card Review!

For those of using your smartphones such as the Nexus One to use it as a storage device, you might have noticed some “lag” when transferring big files.

Class 4 MicroSD cards are rated at maximum of 4MB/s while Class 6 MicroSD cards are at 6MB/s.

There’s also Class 8 at 8MB/s and Class
