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.

This is very, very cool. The UI is great (lags a bit at times :p), and looks pretty slick. The cloud integration seems very very polished and makes for a really enjoyable connected experience. I was falling for an iphone but damn I'll wait to see how that thing pans out.

And the Bing search seems actually pretty cool, thought out and working quite well O_o Of course it was a prepared demo of the thing but if it is content aware and guess well most of the time, it's a tremendous flip in how you experience your phone as a portable google (well, portable Bing).
