Video preview – Windows Phone 7

Is the forthcoming Windows Phone 7 OS good enough to get the competition quaking in their boots? check out our video preview and find out

When Microsoft took the wraps off Windows Phone 7 back in Feb, if you had listened very carefully you would have heard the sound of cheers and high fives coming from Windows Mobile haters rejoicing in its apparent death.

It's not quite diminished yet, though and while Microsoft is still pushing the much derided Windows Mobile platform, the new OS on the block is Windows Phone 7. Yes, it's a bit of a mouthful, but it's also full of exciting new features that have taken their cue from the Zune HD's uniquely designed interface.

We couldn't miss an opportunity to take a closer look, so we went down to Microsoft's HQ to have a play with the forthcoming OS. As it's a preview, there are still a few kinks that need ironing out but from a feature standpoint, this is pretty much it. It's certainly different and more importantly it's clearly a lot better than previous iterations.

And do you know what? Microsoft might just pull it off. But don't take our word for it, check out our video preview and as always tell us what you think below.
