Windows Phone 7 Series

Tuesday February 16, 2010

The Windows 7 phone series is finally official! 

This is really big news and is probably Microsoft's most ambitious project so far. I have always been a fan of the way Windows Mobile worked with the Windows based systems most people already run but with the rise of other super usable smart phones Windows Mobile had really begun to fall behind.

I'm really hoping Microsoft can make a success of the Windows Mobile 7 series. At first glance everything looks quite good! Take a look in the video below. So far the interface looks much more animated and lots of social networking features seem to have been added. It will be interesting to see how the phone functions for office based functions as everything I have seen so far mostly points towards the new interface design and social networking features placing in direct competition with the I-Phone. I can't wait to get my hands on one. I think if Microsoft have improved the business features along with the general UI then Windows Mobile 7 could be a real success story.

Here are some of the best links I have found so far:
