  • Scott Guthrie canon fired tee shirts, why have you give me a hard hat and a Windows Phone 7,6,5,4,3... Seattle Georgina has landed. @nenwmn

  • Now if I can Just get a signal, that's the new server ready to deploy.

  • Georgina emerged from the sewers with little Johnny's phone, "Now Johnny, what has mummy told you about playing with your improvised stylus whilst on the toilet? This phone doesn't need one!"

  • "It's my phone now, and I'm not giving it back. They'll never find me in here!"

  • ....and that concludes our review of the phone itself.

    So, when you actually get your new WP7 device, what's included in the box? Microsoft have been incredibly generous in this regard...............


  • That's not what we meant when we said make a YouTube video using your WP7

  • George was keen to get into the lab to prove that Windows Phone doesn't have the same antenna problems as the iPhone 4, but forgot she was dealing with 3G signals and not x-rays.


  • George went above and beyond the call of duty when testing the new waterproof version of the WP7 device.

  • Early prototypes for the Windows Phone product packaging were admittedly a little 'eccentric'

  • The new Windows Phone is so cool it has to be used in a protective environment so that non-WP7 users aren't excited to violence by their jealousy!

  • Gerogina's background in bomb disposal proves useful for testing the new Windows Phone 7

  • I have been trapped underground for 20 days, my windows phone was the only thing kept me going... finally now I have signal as well!!!

  • Gerogina was finding the Windows Phone 7 promotional "Human Whack-A--Mole" game a little tough going!

  • You can pry my IPhone from my cold, dead hands!

  • I have been trapped underground for 20 days, my windows phone was the only thing kept me going... finally now I have signal as well!!!
