Image Gallery: Windows Phone 7 Series

It comes as no surprise to anyone that Microsoft finally made their Windows Mobile 7 plans public at MWC this morning. The name of their next generation devices is Windows Phone 7 Series. Microsoft started naming their device Windows Phones last year in a rather ineffective campaign that hasn't yet seemed to stick with consumers. By stating Windows Phone 7 as a series it gives us the impression that we will see multiple types of devices and platforms designed for a number of people. The press release is quite vague about what to expect in this next generation hardware, but we will see Xbox LIVE games, Zune music and video, and a dedicated Bing button on future devices. The experiences of Windows Phone 7 Series are organized around Windows Phone hubs that will bring you different content, applications and services.
