Dailymotion app for Windows Phone 7 brings on-the-go video viewing

Dailymotion -- one of the great productivity leeches of the Internet -- has arrived on Windows Phone 7. The app provides easy access to Dailymotion's massive stash of videos, and it's more than a mere wrapper around a mobile site (unlike Microsoft's YouTube app). Featured videos are offered when the app first opens, and you can also browse Dailymotion's many channels. There's a built-in search...

Nokia will be allowed to customize every part of Windows Phone 7

In a bit of an about-turn, Microsoft will allow Nokia to "customize everything" in Windows Phone 7 in order to both differentiate it from handsets made by current WP7 OEMs, such as HTC and Samsung, and presumably to ensure smooth integration with Nokia's existing services. Microsoft had, until now, kept a draconian grip on the look and feel of Windows Phone 7. In fact, other than being allowed...

Nokia Windows Phone will not support Qt, Symbian developers left high and dry

Following news of the Nokia-Microsoft strategic partnership, Nokia has sent a letter to its beleaguered developers to say that Qt will continue to be the development framework for its Symbian phones -- but as far as Nokia Windows Phone 7 devices go, Qt will not be supported. Silverlight and the XNA framework will be the only options for Nokia WP7 developers. In the letter, Nokia says that it...

Windows Phone 7 Mango update to include Internet Explorer 9 Mobile

Back in December, we learned that the second update to Windows Phone 7 -- codenamed Mango -- would be adding HTML5 and Silverlight support. Mary Jo Foley's sources have now confirmed to her that Mango's improved HTML5 support will be due to the arrival of Internet Explorer 9 Mobile (or IE mobile 9 or mobile IE9, whatever Microsoft ultimately labels the browser). Silverlight, on the other hand,...

The full API also allows developers to let their...

We know that a Windows Phone 7 update is coming soon, and we know it's going to fix some performance issues and bring copy/paste to the Microsoft mobile OS.

Yahoo! Mail data bug affecting iPhones as well as Windows Phone 7

Yahoo! Mail's not having the best of times at the moment. It seems as though the IMAP data leak isn't limited to Windows Phone 7; Apple's iPhone is also seeing data racking up to 25 times more than it should. This could cause people hooking up to Yahoo! Mail via the iPhone's push connection to quickly blast through their data allowance just like Windows Phone 7 users. Yahoo! blamed Microsoft...

Windows Phone 7 data leak problem traced to Yahoo! Mail app

Microsoft has admitted to Paul Thurrott that the "third party app" which has been responsible for mysterious data leakage on Windows Phone 7 is, in fact, Yahoo! Mail. The admission came only hours after Rafael Rivera had already proved this to be the case. Rivera noted that Yahoo! was transmitting about 25 times more data than it needed to. Yikes. Microsoft originally reported that this issue...

OS7 is a Windows Phone 7 theme for your iPhone or iPod touch, complete with live tiles

OS7, an iOS theme, brings all that's different about Windows Phone 7's new Metro UI to your iPhone or iPod touch. OS7 is comprised of two menus: the Live Tiles and the alphabetically sorted list of apps you have installed, just like WP7. You can customize the tile menu however you wish, and 'pinning' an item to it is as easy as scrolling to the desired app in the alphabetical list, long-pressing,...

So what next for the ambitious young hacker? How about taking a stab at Windows Phone 7?

Microsoft blames third party for Windows Phone 7 3G data issue

Last week, Microsoft launched an investigation into an apparent Windows Phone 7 bug that caused some users to experience mysterious, unexplainable data transmission over 3G (up to 50 GB of data in some cases) even when connected to Wi-Fi. Yesterday, the results of that enquiry were divulged to the Seattle PI and as it turns out, it's someone else's fault: "We have determined that a third-party...
