Windows Phone 7 gets first benchmarking app
With the launch of a handful of WindowsPhone 7 handsets specced so similarly, you might have foundyourself in trouble picking the best one. Now, a couple of monthshave passed and WP7 finally got its first benchmarking app – WPBench.
The app will let you check your phone'sperformance and compare it to others in three departments – CPU,data (which tests both memory and storage) and GPU. Theapp is developed by Robert Varga and also includes a battery lifetest which puts the phone into an endless loop. While WindowsPhone 7 apps are still lagging in number and there are still noofficial sales figures about the platform, it might get a boost asrumor suggests that Nokia and Microsoft might announce acollaboration very soon. But while nothing is yet official, you willsoon be able to check out your WP7 phone performance through the WPBench app and brag about those frames per second you have beendreaming of. The app is expected to appear in the Marketplace verysoon.
