    Windows Phone 7 Launch today

    So what do we all think of the Windows Phone 7 launch today?

    Last I knew it was happening at around 2:30 in London so will be watching that.

    I've been a long lasting fan of WM but (as I'm sure many people will know) its lost pace in recent years so I'm hoping that WP7 is going to be the boost it needs

    I'm hoping it's as good as the stuff I heard before it was launched. Now the question is which phone do I upgrade to!

    In the middle of the press conf....

    Looks very good, except for the whiney, nasally Microsoft voice!!!!

    Gonna need a proper smartphone for it, though!

    Could it be an iPhone killer???

    Have to say..........

    I've been impressed with what they've said about it, and how it looks.

    I won't be buying one anytime soon, but I can imagine that in 2 years, when I've had some life out of my new phone, I'd go for Windows Phone 7!

    Have Microsoft finally cracked it? A mobile operating system that doesn't crash constantly?

    Well, looking at it dispassionately, you'd have to say yes.

    Although it's always worth remembering that if a company is doing a webinar, for a product, they are going to make sure that it works perfectly. But, saying that, the presenter had a couple of sticky patches, but mainly with reception, rather than the OS.

    I would like to see one, up close, before I made any real decisions....but so far....it looks mighty good.

    Certinly was impressed by the webinar here - (but then again I'm a WM die hard), didn't see any phone there that I liked the look of for my needs (i.e side slider like the HTC Touch Pro) but with any luck someone will kick out someone will kick out something decent soon.

    Is it me, or does the Windows Phone 7 interface look a bit pants? Are they seriously thinking this will compete with Apple & Android?!

    I quite like the whole UI concept of it, very clean which is sorely missing on some devices.

    I will probably look at picking one up in a couple of years when the finally start releasing them in this technological backwater.
