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.

It's clearly not finished though. There's still alot of glitches it seems. That does not mean the paradigm is bad per say.


Some of my previous gripes were due to glitches that I'm sure will be fixed. But the problem of wasted space in the "hub" modules is by design, and unless they plan to totally change how it looks it wont be solved. That's not acceptable on a small-screen device for me.
