About two weeks ago Brandon Watson, Microsoft’s Director of Development Experience, hosted a live web chat on WindowsPhone7.com and was very open throughout the entire Q&A session providing a lot of new information about Windows Phone 7. During the interview he even stated that if anyone had any follow-up questions to just reach out to him. So I did. I asked if he would be kind enough to allow the readers of MobilityDigest, 1800PocketPC, PocketNow, WMExperts and WMPowerUser to ask him questions. The answer was ‘yes’. So here we are. This is your chance to ask MS about WP7. Pretty neat, huh?
A few notes are in order. You can pretty much ask about any aspect of WP7 – software, hardware, dev, etc. Ultimately, we’re going to narrow down the questions to about 20 to present to Brandon (since he can’t be asked to answer every question that’s asked of him) and the general goal is to ask questions that haven’t been asked or answered yet. So between now and Friday at 5pm EST just post your question in the comments of any of the participating sites and you’re done. Expect about a week until the answers come back. There’s no need to post the same question to each site since the sites aren’t separately allotted a number of questions that get submitted – we’re just trying to get the best questions from you guys. And submitting multiple questions is perfectly acceptable so come back often:) And yes, we will submit a few extras since it’s inevitable that a few ‘no comments’ will come into play but based on Brandon’s openness at the webchat I know he’ll do his best to provide all the info he’s permitted to.
Anyway, we’re all pretty stoked that Brandon is actually taking the time to do this. It’s a pretty rare opportunity and we can’t thank him enough for participating in this event. So ladies and gentlemen, ask away…and don’t forget to thank Brandon Watson – he definitely deserves all the thanks in the world for taking the time to deal with all of us:)
