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.

You're way off.

There are a lot of people that don't want to switch to AT&T and don't want a geeky sounding phone called Android either. A lot of people will buy a WinMobile phone just because they will expect it to work better with Windows.

There are also a lot of people that will want it for Mobile Office/Exchange server use. This is going to have more mainstream appeal than Android. Google made Android too geeky and didn't add a good media library.
