MS is pushing on the market its #1 in... France.
Did they change leadership in MS WP7 recently? They didnt used to be such big promoters.. I like it.

Oh, if only the WP7 (Mango) start screen was this "live." On my screen, it's only the People Hub tile that's active. Pictures Hub won't even show me random pictures in my albums like the one on the second video.

Well, in France you have ads and good offers for the Nokia.

Here in France I have a plan with internet box (ADSL + TV + free calls on fix phones) + for my mobile : 3h + unlimited calls from 8pm to 8 am on mobiles (all careers) + unlimited SMS + 500mb data (slowed debit ahead of that) for 55,8€ monthly. It's a two years contract.
And with that, Lumia 800 for 40€.

Not a bad deal, no ?

Yes I think. It's just to say that Nokia is seems to really push things ahead. It's pleasant. I really believe they can drive WP7 sells (and WP7 quality, especially concerning the numbers of developpers).

Like WP7 or not, you can't say a third large competitor would not be good for the market. Especially for pushing Android tio have better looking apps : these of iOs are good-looking, these of WP are really godd lokking (with the same metro interface as the Os itself for most). It will encourage Android to have better apps and better simplicity.
