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.

... monochrome and big squares "icons"... happy 1974 ?!

ok there is the animations, but still the sex-appeal is missing on that thing.

Last time I had a device with Windows Mobile was around 2000 (iPAQ)... but that won't bring me back. Apple has obviously the best UI but locked in device, Android has open model but UI could use some polishing, now WinMo has neither. Odd move.
