Windows Phone 7 Series Build Out!!

After a big rant about how much people love or hate the new Windows Mobile 7 platform, Xda-dev already has a build floating around in the Windows Phone 7 Series forum under Development and Hacking.

Member l2tp has posted a build of WP7S for some of the developers to start working on. However, if you’re thinking “sweet, I will flash this to my HD2″ you might want to hold your horses, this build is only compatible with x86, which means that it only runs on a PC at this point… You guessed it, it is a developers kit (an emulator).

This is still important since it is the first step to trying to crack the new OS wide open to see if we can make it even better. Porting to devices will be a long process since virtually everything will have to be re-written for it to even boot, but at least now we have a sneak peak at the entrails of the beast. Anyways, most of us have been around for long enough to know that this is how it all begins :)

You can find more information in l2tp’s thread.

While flagship phones usually offer bleeding-edge specs and are the most sought after phones, there is a huge market for non-flagship phones. Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone. The device has a Quad...

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
