Navigating with the WebBrowser Control on WP7

GooNews

I am writing a new Windows Phone 7 application called GooNews to show Google News in an application for the phone.  I am writing this application because I needed an app like this. Being able to keep up with news (and create news categories based on keywords) is key to what I wanted to get on my phone. I tried a lot of the other apps out there and when I didn't find what I wanted, I decide to build it myself.

Review of my Windows Phone 7 (HTC HD7)

HTC HD7

I am pretty invested in the Windows Phone 7 and in that light I went ahead and got a phone at launch. I had a LG developer device that Microsoft got me to help me work on the book. While having an early device is really helpful, I was ready for an up-to-spec device. To get a device early, I left Verizon and moved to T-Mobile (for what its worth, AT&T is just more evil than the rest so I my hand was forced to T-Mobile). I went with the HTC HD7.  I took a leap of faith and actually pre-ordered the phone without getting my hands on it. But because this phone hardware was used for the Sprint Android Phone and the HD2 WinMo phone, I'd had a chance to see the other devices and liked the overall size and heft of the device.
