Windows Phone 7 gets previewed


It seems a long time ago that we had the official announcement of Windows Phone 7. In fact it was only in February but for a lot of us thinking about the new platform it has been in the back of our minds as it is not due for release until the end of the year.

Microsoft have now released WP7 devices to developers so we can now get a proper look at the new platform and give it a real run for its money. As I am not clever enough to be a developer we are not one of these lucky few but the guys over at engadget have done a great piece including some rather impressive video.

Although I am eager to have a go of WP7 I must be honest and say that I am not really excited about it and I think that partly comes down to the user interface. It may be one of those things that grows on me and you never know, I could fall in love with it. Also, with the lack of certain features at launch, such as copy/paste and the lack of true multi tasking I cant wait to see if this will be a deciding factor on whether to purchase a WP7 device or not.

Anyway, head on over to engadget and have a look at the work they have done. You may want to make a coffee first. It is a big article!
