As I mentioned earlier, this week I'm in Seattle attending the Microsoft MVP
Global Summit and also mentioned earlier, the whole event is for Microsoft MVPs
only and therefore covered by our NDAs we have. Therefore we/I cannot talk to
much what's going on here but I can share with you, that the summit started
Kicked-off yesterday with the registration and a regional dinner (on the
photo bellow, some of the many Mobile Device MVPs (from the U.S., Canada, New
Zealand, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy (and I hope I haven't forgotten
anything)) representing you - the Windows Mobile users),
today Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates started the 3 days session with a keynote
followed by a Q&A and it's always interesting and refreshing to hear, what Bill
Gates vision is, to listen his predictions and to learn more, where Microsoft is
After the keynote, several general sessions like Xbox, Windows Live, etc.
followed and unfortunately I'm not allowed to tell you anything more but I can
tell you that - if you have a Xbox 360 already - something great is coming 2007.
If you don't have a Xbox 360 yet but you are interested in computer gaming, you
might better buy one soon to be ready to start (and no, this isn't Windows
Mobile related but just on its own and completely off-topic).
Tomorrow we will meet the Windows Mobile team the first time this year (even
if I saw the one or the other during the registration already) and I'm really
looking forward to discuss with the Windows Mobile team the past developments
and what might went bad (in terms of product features and you can be sure -
missing W-LAN sync in ActiveSync 4.x and Windows Mobile Device Center is on my
list) and what I enjoy.
If you feel some real pain with anything,
please feel free to drop me an E-Mail - I will add it to my list and trying
to raise this issue during the next two days as well.
Cheers ~ Arne
