I am based in Canada and am very excited about TMobile Digits.
I hope this will come to Canada, likely Rogers will be 1st to market.
Based on comments from Brad and others like Windows Central, this makes lots of sense.
I think this should work well on LTE, however, if 5G has proiritiztion for voice, even better.
I am guessing most carriers are close to just selling data plans that voice calls can be made from.
My carrier TELUS now has VOLTE and VOWiFi. If voice now rides over an IP network, logical next step would be to make all voice just an app.
If you add Microsoft's comments about form factor, your Surface Pro could be a voice device (with Bluetooth) headset.
Would this not allow Apple, Google and Microsoft own the MVNO carrier relationship vs Verizon, ATT, Bell, TMobile, NTT, Orange, BT and other carrier around the world, would this remove termination changes and allow global roaming with 1 number vs SIM swapping.
Microsoft is already a carrier in US, almost a carrier in UK and working on a carrier relationship in Canada and likely many other parts of the world.
Google has taken the MVNO approach.
Apple is only one left out, wonder when Tim Crook will see the light and put Apple between carriers and customers (provide better users expereince).
Microsoft needs to be a carrier to issue numbers for Skype and Skype for Business.
Maybe mobile and hardline carrier could compete on traffic shaping/QOS for their networks, provide sub 20ms pings to have awesome VOIP on all IP based networks.
If TMobile digits is the start, we have an exciting 36 months ahead.
Love to hear from engineer from carriers, this must scare the crap out of carriers, I am guesssing this is reason for content play!
First of all, I want to make sure I do not come off as bitter, I really want Microsoft to be successful.
In the last few new service releases, MS To-Do and Microsoft Customer Manager, the intention of the services is excellent, the execution has been challenged.
In both cases, the Microsoft marketing people seem to be disconnected from the dev teams and operational teams.
MS To Do:
day of announcement, available for commercial accounts, 5 days later it shows up as a service in O365 portal
day of announce, O365 support have no idea or training on service that is provisioned from O365 portal
The services that To Do might integrate are unclear, one person say MS Planner, another says no
Wunderlist feature like subtasks, sharing are not available with initial release, why does Winderlist work well on AWS and after a year To Do cannot function same as Wunderlist (did the Winderlist team not get memo of faster releases)
On to Outlook Customer Manager:
Was announced last year, started showing up 2 weeks ago.
Who support this service, O365 commcerial support do not seem to know it.
April 24/17, Microsoft announced OCM for IOS coming in a few weeks, how can you release a customer facing service without mobile same day. The last communcations from MS was make the feature request for mobile, they already have rendering on their web site
Any ideas how to get into private beta for Project Cheshire?
I have a hotmail account that my Microsoft hardware and software purchases are tied to.
I also have subscribed to O365 Business account (E3).
I am having issues with logging into O365 account.
For some reason, my hotmail accounts shows up as user name for O365 apps like MS Project.
Is there a way to move my purchased apps and hardware to my O365 account, in trying, Microsoft does not recongnize my O365 account as a Microsoft account.
How can someone get into the private beta for Project Cheshire?
Does anyone know if Project Cheshire will be the client for MS Planner?
Since you also have Petri for IT pro's, have you considered discussing content related to SMB and Microsoft. Some of your discussion does discuss what Microsoft is doing, however, as a consultant who spends some time trying to improve my processes using Microsoft technology, it would be nice to have a segment on how Microsoft technology can be applied to solve business and workflow issues for others, you seem to spend time on how Paul and Brad do their workflow as writers and podcasters.
I am not suggesting you do the same type of work as Accenture or IBM, however, there is a gap on how to apply Microsoft technology for small businesses.
Microsoft many new tasks apps/services?
Microsoft's new Outlook Contact Manager?
Where does it make sense to use MS project?
Where to use Wunderlist vs Planner?
How all the above tools integrate with Outlook Groups?
Small Business many times do not have access to knowledge and expertise. They are too small to get assistance from Microsoft, business partner are still focused on selling iron vs solutions unless they are ISV (I was a VAR for 15 yrs, I know).
The gap for Small business is that they cobble solutions together that are not effective. They use Gmail for emails/schedule, paper notes for documenting meetings and QuickBooks for back office.
I think it would be an awesome podcast once in a while to help small businesses understand how the Microsoft ecosystem could make them more effective and look at ROI for implementing technologies like O365.
I own a small business and contract to another business that consults to enterprise customers, I know I would see value in how the MS ecosystem could make me more effective
