A close friend of mine recently complained about why exactly I avoid writing about Windows Phone and Nokia. To be honest, I haven’t been impressed by earlier Nokia Devices, owing primarily to the fact that the Operating System for the Nokia devices has been very lousy to say the least. I am now anxiously waiting for the much anticipated Nokia’s Windows Phone, which by all means has to be a game changer in the smartphone industry.

You heard it right, Microsoft is setting itself up for a live Web cast and will be announcing the next version of its Windows Phone platform, titled Windows Phone Mango. Well, I guess operating systems are now opting for fruits and eatables as convention to name the new versions. Which sounds quite nice to the ears and easy to remember.
There is a lot of stir associated to the Microsoft and Nokia Partnership and we are all in wait for 2012 when Nokia is expected t release as many as 4 Windows Phone 7 powered devices.

There is quite a Microsoft stir lately, we missed talking about the recent 4 million Kinect units being sold, numbers which outsold the Nintendo Wii since its launch. The folks at Microsoft were however quite on the sales of the Windows Phone 7. To be honest I was thinking that the device had turned out to be a failure. The case isn’t so.
Microsoft’s Achim Berg stated in a press release that Microsoft sold over 1.5 million devices since its launch in the Europe in October and the US launch in November. The numbers, according to him are quite ahead of the expectations. at least for the first two months of launch. I for one would honestly side with his opinion given that only 40,000 Windows Phone 7 devices were sold on the launch day. But that’s past.

It’s only been days when Microsoft announced the release of its anticipated Windows Phone 7 platform for mobile devices and we already have some apps doing great. Well the top app in the list is quite a surprise as I always had a perception of Windows Phone users to be tasteful. Wrong I was as their sense of smell is far superior and one that needs continuous feed. I am talking about the Fart Apps that surprisingly top the Paid Apps on the Windows Phone 7 app store.

And just like they were download like hot commodities, the fart apps have won download hits from Windows Phone 7 users. And here’s a bigger surprise; People are actually paying for one, the Farting Dino. Wow, I mean I too downloaded a couple of those on my HTC Desire on Android but those were for free and had a short span. But paying? There’s got to be something great about this.
While all of us have been waiting, anticipating or asking when are the Windows Phone 7 coming? There have been rumors stating that the HTC powered based on the Windows Phone 7 will be coming late in October or even by November to the folks in the US. But be prepared to embrace the official launch of Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 on October 11.
