look up a mall in the bing search, then click on it under local and you should see indoor map right under address.

I have my Samsung Focus and

This phone is amazing. It was a bi*ch getting my contacts synced over to Gmail, but I handled it and everything else was gravy after that. I'm not even on Mango and I love my phone. I tried forcing the update through my Mac Connector for WP7 and it's not happening. I might add a Windows 7 partition so I can update to Mango. A few notes:

- I installed a 32GB SD card easily. I also copped a MicroSim adapter from Amazon and that snapped in like a dream. Installation was idiot proof.

- Facebook integration made adding my contacts painless. Names and e-mails were pretty much set up from the jump.

- Zune Pass isn't as automatic or quick as Spotify, but the Marketplace's selection is MUCH deeper than Spotify's so I'll probably be cancelling my spotify account in a minute. I've been streaming J. Cole's "Sideline Story" without a hitch. Music videos are coming soon and that's going to be

- Jesus Christ, XBOX Live integration makes iOS' gamecenter look ridiculous. I never saw an incentive to sign into gamecenter so i just ignored it. But after setting up my Live account and making my Avatar (that looks like me and not some Obese robot ) it looked dope as hell and added a personal touch to my home screen.

- I'll never like Internet Explorer, but from what I see of IE9, it's completely different than the IE I have right now. The anti-aliasing of the font keeps making it look like a mobile browser and that's a pain in the a.ss to me. Overall though? I didn't buy this phone to be a browser, I bought it first and foremost to be a phone.

- Bing Maps > Google Maps on iOS. Faster, Clearer, More Accurate. I can't wait to use Local Scout

-The Focus is a much more solid phone than I imagined it would be. It's solidly built and I don't think I'm going to break it. I WILL however be getting a case asap so I don't tempt fate.

- MLB At Bat and ESPN Scorecenter are both less buggier on WP7 and easier to manage.

Overall, I think Windows Phone 7 is amazing. I think the UI's simplicity lends itself to be beautiful and animated yet easier to run than a jailbroken iPhone.

Wow!! I really can't wait for a Nokia style phone now. I'll check out sea ray and play with it, but I don't like all touchscreen phones. But I'm positive Nokia will come out with a slide out physical keyboard one.

Thats whats up....glad you liking WP7 so far. Wait till you get mango tho....its like having a whole new phone.

You should check and see which version of the focus you have..1.3 or 1.4. If its 1.4, they are still testing mango for it and it will be out at the end of the month. To check which version you got just take the battery out and it should be on a sticker.

I gotta question about Mango browsing with IE9. If you go to a website with lots of flash content on it such as Nfl.com or worldstarhiphop.com will the html5 support play everything in the browser like it has flash?

I hope MS breaks the Windows Mobile team into different divisions.

1. A dedicated division to bring Zune Social in the next revision. Zune social on a phone would be deadly imagine adding your favorite DJ as a friend and see what songs they are currently playing and with Zune pass you can stream the songs they are listening to. That would for sure beat Radio. Also bring back Artist Biographys, discographys, top songs etc more Artist and Album info please

2. MS needs to start bringing more games into WP7 right now IOS stomps them with their game catalog. Windows Mobile has freaking Xbox Live its time to put quality games on there with full blown multiplayer features. Maybe they are working on a Portable Halo, Forza, Fable title to start it off. I expect to hear something at the next E3.

[video - click to view]

Microsoft is continuing in its efforts to a.ssociate Windows Phone with really cool people.

On this occasion it is Kendrick Lamar, a 24-year-old musician from Compton, California.

Kendrick uses his Windows Phone to go onto Zune Marketplace and listen to music, including his own critically-acclaimed album Section.80 and uses Pocket Voice Recorder app on Windows Phone to record rhymes and melody ideas whenever he wants.

The video depicts him and electronic producer Nosaj Thing creating their original song "Cloud 10".
