Windows 7 Phone

windows 7 phoneWhat? Microsoft's new mobile phone, aiming to match the popularity of the iPhone.

What does it do?
The phone aims to keep you in touch with everything in your life, with the homepage keeping you up-to-date with all your social media.

The tiles on the homepage are dynamically-updated to show real-time updates from your contacts, applications and services.

Andy Lees of Microsoft said: "Your friends' status updates are shown. If you have a calendar appointment, you see what it is and where you're going. If you’ve got new music or have been invited to play a game, that information appears. And none of this intrudes on what you're already doing."

It will also connect to XBox Live, giving it potential to become a quality gaming device. Music and video via Zune is also included.

Release date: December 2010
