Windows Phone 7 Series

It’s hard to judge a user interface based on movies and pictures alone, but I think it’s pretty safe to say that Windows Phone 7 Series is a huge improvement upon earlier versions of Windows Mobile. If Microsoft won’t quite catch up to Apple and Palm, the release of Windows Phone 7 Series should put them at least a whole lot closer.

Microsoft’s official site shows off some of the new user interface, which is very reminiscent of the Zune HD. Engadget and Gizmodo have movies. Ars Technica has a nice overview of the new system.
