Windows Mobile 7 to Be Touch Centric
Details regarding a future generation of Windows Mobile known as 7 have come to light. Similar to the iPhone, the user interface will be based on finger-touch input and not stylus input. It will have controls, such as flicking up and down lists and moving left and right, as well as gesture control, such as shaking or rotating the phone to perform different actions.

Thank you, Apple!
I've resorted to a program called Extreme Text, which is great but could timestamp the messages more efficiently. Sometimes messages that should be after a response come before.
Any suggestions? I bet this will be a feature in WM7 and BJII users will be left in the dust.
Stupid crap!! *slams head against wall*
Good job, Microsoft. You actually had me liking one of your products and now I don't. Nice move.
Well, the real question is
On a side note though this does keep the software industry competative and keeps them redesigning.
