Windows So, after much, much speculation and many, many rumours, Microsoft finally took the wraps off Windows Phone 7 Series, its newest mobile operating system. Hold on to your hats, because uncharacteristically for the Redmond giant, they've rebuilt everything from the ground up - this system has little to no connection to the Windows Mobile of yore. I don't say this lightly - but dear lord, Windows Phone 7 Series is full of win. Update: Hands-on video from Engadget inside. Update II: There is no sync application. It's all done over-the-air, to the internet. Only videos and music are synced via the Zune software. Update III: Since I didn't mention it clearly, here it goes: Windows Phone 7 Series is a clean break. There is no backwards compatibility at all. Update IV: Channel9 has a 22-minute in-depth demonstration of Windows Phone 7 Series.

Looks very nice at first glance, but

I have to see it in action to form a opinion, but I guess this is yet another platform and because it isn't really suitable for the enterprise (will MS keep supporting WinMo6?) and I really don't have high hopes how extensible the platform will be.

I just need more cold hard facts and some hands on experience, but my initial feeling is that this might compete with the Iphone.
