Windows Phone 7

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer unveiled Windows Phone 7 devices (not to be confused with Windows 7  Phones :)), news, and also launch dates today. I was actually invited to attend the launch event here in Australia, unfortunately it’s being held in Sydney so I couldn’t make it. If you want to see the Press Conference in the U.S, feel free to browse the videos and other press resources over at Microsoft News Center.

Below are the Windows Phone 7 devices.

From a first glance at the screenshots, Windows Phone 7 UI is not really my cup of tea (big color boxes don’t interest me much). But then again, I haven’t actually tried using a Windows Phone 7 so I should keep my mouth shut :) Windows Phone 7 will be available on Thursday, 21 October.

Will you be getting a Windows 7 Phone? Argh, I mean, Windows Phone 7?
