Windows Phone 7 Series – Announced today plus Show & Tell Video


Today, Microsoft announced the Windows Phone 7 Series!  If you were watching the Steve Ballmer Windows Phone 7 Series announcement from MWC today, you got to see and hear some of the very exciting things about the new Windows Phone 7 Series, coming by the holiday season 2010.  The new interface, bringing together so many of the items and collections of information and entertainment that you use today, into your phone at your fingertips is fantastic!

Windows Phone 7 Series brings your information together through various “hubs” right through the main interface to make it simple and easy to use.  For instance:

  • People – This hub delivers an engaging social experience by bringing together relevant content based on the person, including his or her live feeds from social networks and photos.
  • Pictures – This hub makes it easy to share pictures and video to a social network in one step.
  • Games – This hub delivers the first and only official Xbox LIVE experience on a phone, including Xbox LIVE games, Spotlight feed and the ability to see a gamer’s avatar, Achievements and gamer profile.
  • Music + Video – This hub creates an incredible media experience that brings the best of Zune, including content from a user’s PC, online music services and even a built-in FM radio into one simple place that is all about music and video.
  • Marketplace – This hub allows the user to easily discover and load the phone with certified applications and games.
  • Office – This hub brings the familiar experience of the world’s leading productivity software to the Windows phone.

Plus so much more!  Instead of me trying to type so much about the amazing things announced about Windows Phone 7 Series today, let me make it even easier for you.  If a picture is worth 1,000 words, how many is a video worth?  Let’s find out!
