O2 goes early on Windows Phone 7 details
O2 has gone live with a Windows Phone 7 intro page, ahead of the big worldwide launch.
And whilst the web page doesn't specifically name any WP7 handsets (unlike LG's somewhat naughty post) it does give us a nice insight as to what to expect from the platform.
The official blurb states:
"Windows Phone 7 is designed to bring together all the things you care about most. Windows Phone 7 organizes content in information hubs, which you can access quicker and easier with a single touch."
And, the key features are listed as:
- Quickly see everything you care about by personalizing your Start screen with live tiles.
- Gaming on-the-go with Xbox LIVE, meaning you can compete from virtually anywhere.
- Play movies, TV shows and music quickly and easily. Stream all of your favourite songs and videos through Zune.
- The only phone with Microsoft Office Mobile built in. Send, receive and edit documents, and upload to Sharepoint remotely while you're away from your desk.
- Manage both work and personal email and calendars with ease.
- Get a smooth web experience on-the-go with Internet Explorer.
- Losing your phone just got harder. Track it online with Find My Phone.
- Keep email, calendar and contacts all in sync from phone to PC to the web.
- Stream online photos to your phone and share online automatically. With one touch upload, with a single click you can upload a photo onto Facebook and other social networking sites.
So what Window Phone 7 devices do we expect to see landing on O2?
All is expected to be revealed later on today, but if Pocket-lint was to take a punt then we'd guess that the network could be home to the HD7 (aka the Schubert).
Be sure to check Pocket-lint throughout the day as we'll be bringing you all the WP7 news live, and we'll also be in attendance at the London launch event.
