Wow, what amazing 5 days I spent in Seattle and Redmond where I came from home yesterday night, after some heavy delays in Seattle, followed my a missed flight in Copenhagen and therefore some additional delays there.
Anyway, I had a great time in Seattle, Redmond and even on the airports since I had the chance to spend all the time with my fellow MVP pals from all over the world as well as Microsoft gave us the chance again, to meet the folks over there which are responsible for the devices we are using: Windows Mobile Pocket PCs and Smartphones.
As always and unlike other Microsoft events like MÃƒÂ¶bius, the MVP Summit is an
NDA event means I can not share a single word here but trust me - the Windows
Mobile future is still bright and will become even brighter! :-) Microsoft has
some great plans to increase the user as well as service experience and I'm more
than happy to follow-up these developments. However, we also had enough time to
discuss with the product managers and planners current issues and problems we
and users in general face and Microsoft takes this feedback serious. While I
don't expect to see everything fixed the way MVPs wants to get it fixed (and
even within the MVP group, there are different point of views if the one or the
other item is a bug or a feature), Microsoft got at least a great feedback which
will help them to optimize Windows Mobile even better.
If you wonder who the MVPs are which represents the Windows Mobile community,
have a look here. On the photo bellow many MVPs are missed, like the one who
haven't found the time to came over to Redmond but as you can see, the Mobile
Devices MVPs are many today:
Okay, now it's time to check my E-Mails, to read all the missed RSS feeds, etc. to keep the::unwired up to date as soon as possible.
