Windows Phone 7 Series Unveiled

Exciting news coming earlier from the Mobile World Congress where Microsoft has unveiled the new Windows Mobile Phone 7 Series (make sure to check out the Backstage section of the site, which provides you with a nice communication channel regarding the WP7). The Phone looks great with a new trend regarding the navigation UI presenting clean, bright and asymmetric-menu shortcuts to the different functionality "hubs".

The phone seems to achieve the same clean UI and responsiveness from the ZuneHD, and has some interesting integration points with Zune Music functionality and XBox live. Although there are many unknowns, like the developer SDK and integration tools, it seems very promising and is creating buzz all around.

Most of the Microsoft folks are still very quiet about many key features, especially regarding multi-tasking capabilities, development experience, application market and other key related topics, but it seems that they are saving most of the exciting news for MIX10 which is just a few weeks ahead.

Check out the press release about the WP7 and stay tuned for more information.
