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.

Another thing I hope will happen, is the total control of the OS by MS, which usually wouldn't be a good thing, but what I want to see is Updates coming to every Win7Mo phone directly from Microsoft, not like with so many older WinMo phones where upgrades were only available so-so.

Since the rumours have been spot-on so far, this one is probably true also: updates will come OTA, straight from Microsoft.
