Windows Phone 7 Launched Today
Microsoft launched its most important product of the year, Windows Phone 7 OS for mobile devices, in a dual launch event in both London and New York.
Steve Ballmer, Microsoft CEO, took the stage and explained how Windows Phone 7 will be bringing a change in the mobile industry and some features of the OS. According to him, the OS will be focusing on two points: wonderfully delightful, and wonderfully mine.
“When you first get the phone, the stuff that’s more obvious makes you smile,” says Andy Lees, Microsoft’s Mobile Communications Business president.
The phone delivers a new user experience by integrating the things users really want to do, creating a balance between getting work done and having fun.
Microsoft also unveiled about 10 mobile phones featuring Windows Phone 7 that will be launched in the European market on Oct 21, and in U.S. market on Nov. 8.
