New Windows Phone 7 ROM Image Released
A new build (6176) of the Windows Phone 7 OS image (for the x86 emulator) has been released with the Windows Phone Developer Tools CTP Refresh, and xda-devs member RustyGrom has unlocked it using the same method as for the old (6077) ROM image in the SDK.
We’re still playing with it, but so far (compared to the older build) Office is installed, there’s a new uninstall option for applications, and the phone functionality has been fleshed out; the dialer interface, in-call interface and call history screens are now present, along with an in-call notification (in the same style as the new SMS notification) showing at the top of the screen whenever you’re in a call and have navigated away from the call status screen.
The interface is currently quite simplistic and will probably be updated as development continues.
