Speaking of which, and unrelated to the above, the Windows 7 Phone revelation is going to start soon (around 9:40am EST NYC time), with live coverage at:

+ live-blogging at Engadget
+ play-by-play video-blogging at Twit.tv
+ during the presentation, the designer of W7 Phone promised very fast pocket-to-capture for the device's camera (we don't know if this applies to every W7 Phone, or just the model he was demo'ing) [NEW!]
