Microsoft Brings It With Phone Series 7

Microsoft is getting tons of positive buzz for their total redo of their Mobile OS, called Windows Phone Series 7 (slightly more original than “iPad”). Gizmodo is calling it “the most groundbreaking phone since the iPhone.” Also check out GigaOm for “three challenges that remain.”

  • Tapping into huge xbox live community
  • “People Hub” that shows streams of your friends’ social media activity from multiple services
