Windows Phone 7 Series: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know

February 17, 2010 at 7:20 pm 1 comment

Microsoft has just revealed its newest device and all I have to say is, “Holy. Cow.”  Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 is to be the successor to previous windows mobile operating systems, except that this one completely re-invents the Smartphone user interface.

If you’ve ever seen a Zune HD, you’ll be pretty familiar with the interaction on this device, but after you see this video, you’ll definitely agree that it’s even more.

I’m pretty excited that there is talk that the phone will go to AT&T, which is awesome for me because personally, I want this phone and qualify for an upgrade this year ;).  Microsoft says that the Windows Phone 7 operating system is kind of like a combination of the Zune’s and the interface of Windows Media Center that they call “Metro.”  Still, it will include great features from the previous Windows Mobile, such as a Mobile Office, including Word, Outlook, Excel, etc.

The article is pretty lengthy and filled with more videos and as the title states:  everything you’ll want to know about the phone including a ton of extra sweet features on the phone.  For example, that interesting “home screen” with all the little animated boxes? You can make your own “Tiles,” as they’re called that can be linked to an app (like Internet Explorer), a specific contact, website, photo gallery, playlist, downloaded widget, or sub-menus of the phone.  What’s even wilder is that the order the Tiles are given on the start screen are determined by which ones you touch on more. So you link to the Facebook app, which the animated Tile will also show you live updates on, it would be the first Tile on the list.  Awesome.

The quiz for you guys will be on the video shown as well as this post, and feel free to check out the article here. There are lots of other great facts on the phone.

Thanks for reading!

    It just looks like Microsoft still trying to compete with Apple. This will probably just turn out to be a less high tech, slower, clumsier version of the iPhone.
