    About Windows 7 OS

    I have two phones with me as I am using HTC phone along with Google Android phone, I find Android OS seems better for me but I am really happy to see finally Windows also came with OS 7 but something which I am worried about it's working. I was reading about Windows 7 Phone.

    I found that Apps which working on OS version will not work on 7. I am not an expert person so I wish someone expert will comments on it and clear my doubt.

    if your asking about existing apps working on version 7? the answer is, they wont. there is no support for existing programs to work on the new OS, basically, anything you bought or installed will no longer work if you decide to go to WinPhone 7

    H uh? WM 7 is completely incompatible with older versions?? That doesn't make much sense.

    basically what's going on with 7series, they dropped the Win CE kernel so that's why the older apps won't work on the new OS

    It makes perfect sense. They started from fresh with a completely new OS.
