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.

That is possible. My wife has a macbook and her iPhone... but they do sync up nicely and play nicely together. That is one reason to own all Apple products; they recognize each other.

I have friends who have all Apple products. We have a mix because I appreciate a variety of hardware and software (Operating Systems), but then again we have also ALWAYS had at least one or two Macs lying around the house. But please don't make owner loyalty a crime.

This looks like a pretty cool phone. It will be interesting to see more video, some more of its capabilities as time progresses.
