Posted by Tanmay | Posted in Events, Windows Phone 7 | Posted on 15-02-2010


Windows Phone 7 Series was just announced Officially at the Mobile World Congress 2010. This new version of Windows Phone marks the beginning of a new era. Windows Phone OS has been totally re-vamped and built up from ground up!

The new Interface is inspired from Microsoft’s highly successful Zune Interface. Everything is super slick and tightly integrated with each other. The look is simplistic yet feature rich.

Microsoft has roped in lots of Carriers and Hardware Partners to promote its new Windows Phone 7 Series. Some of the major Carrier Partners include AT&T, Deutsche Telekom AG, Orange, SFR, Sprint, Telecom Italia, Telefónica, Telstra, T-Mobile USA, Verizon Wireless and Vodafone, while hardware partners include Dell, Garmin-Asus, HTC, HP, LG, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, Toshiba and Qualcomm.

The Start screen majorly consists of what’s called as “Live Panels“. These panels constantly update Live data from services such as Facebook and Windows Live.  Browsing throughout the UI is full of pan in and out animations which look terrific.

Peoples Hub

The Peoples Application is where the Facebook integration with the the OS at System level really shines. Real time live data is pulled from your Facebook account and people with whom your most frequently interact are shown in a slick interface along with their most recent status updates. Again every information be it Contacts or Profile Pics are stored on the cloud.

XBox Live integration seems a major step in bringing Gaming to a Mobile level and connecting Microsoft’s highly successful XBox Gaming Console.

Zune Phone or WinMo 7 or Both?

Microsoft’s upcoming event at Mobile World Conference (MWC) is the most talked about subject on the Internet these days. Rumors are far spread about Microsoft announcing the next generation of its popular Windows Mobile operating system.

Windows Mobile 7 is awaited by bated breath by everyone. But recent rumors also suggest a Zune Phone in the making and that it will be announced at MWC.

According to a Spanish blog MuyComputer, a Zune Phone launch is 100% confirmed. The Phone will use Tegra Processor which is developed by nVidia, a 480 x 272 screen, HDMI video out, and weighs around 70 grams.

It will most probably be a Zune with just a Phone application with no major Hardware or Cosmetic changes. It will run Windows Mobile 7.

So there are chances that along with Windows Mobile 7 we will see a new Zune Phone too.

Keep checking back for more updates on Zune Phone and Windows Mobile 7!

What’s special and interesting about this event is that there have been various rumors about Microsoft showing off glimpses of Windows Mobile 7. Windows Mobile 7 as you all must be knowing is the next iteration in Windows Mobile OS. High expectations are set and everyone is hoping for it to be groundbreaking enough to outcast Android and iPhone OS.

Although I feel that this event will be focused mainly on Windows Mobile 6.5.3/6.5.5. Whatever it might be, we will be there to cover all updates about this event.
