Manufacturers start your . . .umm . . .Machines

Windows Phone 7 has been given to manufacturers in it’s final form.  So now the manufacturers can start up their machines and start cranking out phones.  Yeehaw!  (I guess).  Anyway, this should mean we should launch to still arrive on schedule in about two months.


In Microsoft’s blog Terry Myerson wrote, “Windows Phone 7 is the most thoroughly tested mobile platform Microsoft has ever released.  We had nearly ten thousand devices running automated tests daily, over a half million hours of active self-hosting use, over three and a half million hours of stress test passes, and eight and a half million hours of fully automated test passes.  We’ve had thousands of independent software vendors and early adopters testing our software and giving us great feedback. We are ready.”

This is good news and hopefully it really did help them work out the kinks.  Later on he mentions that they did make some edits for Facebook/Contacts in the People Hub.  They made it so only the people you “really” know will show up in your contacts and gave you the ability to “like” something right from the Hub.  It’s not huge but they are listening.

Well the days are now numbered and we should be hearing about official launch dates sometime soon.  Get excited.
