I thought Bing has maps and not voice turn by turn directions.

I am just wondering about the use of WP 7 are manufacturers going to have any unique phone interfaces for their phones, like HTC Sense, etc. Cause all the WP7 phones have the same interface that I like, but they are all the same.

Part of Microsoft Requirements software wise is to not have any major changes to the look/UI of the phone. OEMs/Carries can have there own hubs and OEMs/Carries can add one custome color to the theme options on the phone. Thats it. Tis why HTC only has a hub interface and most of the phones look similar. Its to make sure if you buy any windows phone it feels like windows phone.

Nope. If you want to be stuck in the stone ages, then that's you. I can only imagine the advances in smartphones 5 or even 10 yrs down the line.

It does have the htc hub. He just didnt talk about it. Look at the video carefully when he is scrolling and you will see it around the 1.19 minute mark and its the one before telenav tile at the bottom.

Call me crazy for thinkin forward and goin against what Google thinks will be a crowded market with WP7's introduction but i like the OS. Too bad HTC opted to put this on T-Mobile of all carriers man. Talk about a waste of potential...

I don't like the homescreen, but the interface is very fluid.
