Windows Wait, news on an actual operating system? What, no H264 news? It's not even Apple-related? Yes, you're not the only one who's cynical. Anyway, we always assumed that Windows Phone 7 would be built on top of Windows Embedded CE 6.0, but as it turns out, that's not entirely accurate - it actually uses the next version of Windows CE: Windows Embedded Compact 7. No information has been made available about this new version as of yet. Update: And here's an article on how the rumour mill suggests the future of Microsoft's mobile strategy includes replacing Windows Embedded Compact with... Windows NT. Yeppers.

I don't get why this is news

So the next version of the Microsoft mobile OS uses the next version of the Microsoft mobile OS kernel?

What's next? A story about how Windows 8 will use the next iteration of the Windows NT kernel?

The rumor about them switching the kernel to NT is interesting, but then that's just a rumor that any blog could generate in 30 seconds.
