There are times when you need to use GPS navigation without a connection and Navigon will be launching their latest software on Windows Phone soon.

I have been using the Bing Maps navigation functionality in Windows Phone Mango on my devices and it is decent. However, the fact that you have to tap to hear each turn is lame. I look forward to seeing what Nokia brings to the table with their navigation solution, but at this time that is a big unknown on Windows Phone. One new application we do know will provide an excellent navigation experience, with offline mapping support, is NAVIGON for WP7 that is coming soon. Read more »

Summary: Windows Phone 7 may not be flying off the shelves, but in my extensive experience the platform is the most stable and reliable out there. I recommend that you at least give the platform a try because it is NOTHING like Windows Mobile and the Microsoft name does not kill the experience.

As regular readers know, I have used nearly every mobile Phone operating system over the years and bounce around between devices, operating systems, and carriers faster than most people I know. I have been using Windows Phone 7 since July 2010 and can say without a doubt that Windows Phone 7 has been the most stable and reliable mobile phone operating system I have ever used, even counting the early technical preview and current beta development versions of Mango that I have been running on my phones. People may have preconceived notions about Microsoft’s mobile platform given that Pocket PC and Windows Mobile had issues, but you can throw all of that out the window and if you give Windows Phone 7 an honest chance I think you will find out the same thing.

With a four-minute, 30-second sneak peek in early June, Microsoft whipped what had been passing industry-wide interest in the next version of Windows up to a fever pitch.

Microsoft had been so secretive about the OS until that point that the company wouldn’t confirm “Windows 8″ as the code name, not even after CEO Steve Ballmer referred to the OS as Windows 8 in a speech. Read more »

Microsoft’s “Aero Lite” interface for Windows 8 will supposedly feature elements from its Metro UI used in Media Center, WP7.

ZoomBack in December, a rumor surfaced in regards to Windows 8 and the existence of two separate interfaces. These will reportedly coexist in the same way Basic and Aero currently reside in Windows 7.

For Windows 8, one interface codenamed “Wind” will be fully 3D, requiring around 170 MB of dedicated video memory. It will also be “fully dynamic” by adapting to the user’s habits. This includes the ability to speed up daily tasks by changing shortcuts and icons to fit within different usage scenarios. “Wind” will reside in all copies of Windows 8, but remain inactive within the 32-bit environment.

The last two days have now brought information and images regarding the second (Mosh?) interface which will ultimately replace the current Windows 7 Basic. Dubbed as “Aero Lite,” the new UI will supposedly borrow various flat transportation-like arrows and fonts offered in Microsoft’s Metro UI, the same style set used in Microsoft’s Media Center, Windows Phone 7 and the newly revised Microsoft Store. And like Windows 7 Basic, this simplified UI will be geared for low-end machines that can’t run Windows 8′s rumored 3D “Wind” interface. Read more »
