Microsoft launches the Windows 7 Phone


Nearly four years after Apple unveiled the iPhone, and more than two years after Google
introduced its first Android smartphone, Microsoft is launching its effort to catch up. On Nov. 8, AT&T
and T-Mobile will begin selling the first phones powered by the software maker’s new Windows Phone 7 operating system.
(Walt Mossberg‘s) conclusion is that Microsoft has used its years in the smartphone wilderness to come up with a user interface that is novel and attractive, that stands out from the Apple and Google approaches, and that works pretty well. Instead of multiple screens filled with small app icons, or the occasional widget, Windows phones use large, dynamic tiles that can give you
certain information, like your next appointment, at a glance. And it has special “hubs” for things like contacts and entertainment that use bold, attractive interfaces and offer personalized, updating information.
