Microsoft Announces Windows Phone 7

Microsoft Announces Windows Phone 7

Today Microsoft has officially launched the long-awaited Windows Phone 7 operating system and has highlighted a number of devices that will be launched in the USA and other global markets. Microsoft will undoubtedly put a large marketing campaign behind these devices and the new operating system, however Arrow will reserve judgement on Windows Phone 7 until we’ve had a chance to get hands-on with the new models.

Whilst it would be wrong to bet against Microsoft making a success of this launch – their track record to date in mobility products has been average at best, and given the strength of competing products such as Android, BlackBerry and Apple then we’re not convinced Windows Phone 7 will be a huge success for business customers.

Arrow will be demo-ing some of the new models later this week and then will be better placed to decide on the ranging of these models later this week
