“The WP7S screens look like they were designed for a PP slide presentation or for a video demo (read from a distance) and not for an handheld interface (read from 20 inches). One design lesson here is that most interface design work should be done at actual final scale and all internal demos should be on actual hardware rather than on pitch slides or big monitor screens. After all, users see the interface only at actual size, and so should interface designers, their managers, or so on up the management chain.”—Edward Tufte goes to town on on the Windows 7 Phone interface design: Ask E.T.
