Flickr for Window 7® & Windows Phone 7®

Launch the MicroSite.

SUMMARY

As a kick off to this year’s CES conference, last night Flickr previewed two new native applications for the Windows Phone 7 and Windows 7 Slate tablet.
So far, we have seen 12 original articles from several tech outlets including Engadget, DownloadSquad’s Switched Blog and ReadWriteWeb.
The tone of coverage has been positive, with reporters touting the sleek interface and synchronization between devices.
Many were also impressed with the video trailer showcasing the apps (with one reporter calling the apps “slick and gorgeous")
and expressed their anticipation for their official availability for download.

NOTABLE QUOTES:

"Really, words don't do this software justice, which is why Flickr has also released this demo video." - CNET

“Flickr's even built-in some sort of sync solution into both apps meaning you can transition from your WP7
device to your Windows 7 tablet and still keep your place in the photos you were viewing.” –DowloadSquad

“In the meantime, there's a video demo of the apps in action, and we have to say, we like what we're seeing.” - Engadget

“Flickr, the grandfather of online photo-sharing sites, is giving the kids a new way to use the site with their fancy
Windows 7 and Windows Phone 7 devices. Yahoo has announced Flickr for Windows 7 and Windows Phone 7
native Flickr apps for Windows phones and tablets.” – Wired Webmonkey

“For Microsoft, it's a clear win. Flickr is one of the most popular photo services in the world
It provides a blue chip capability for people who use Windows 7 or Windows Phone 7 devices.” – ReadWriteWeb
