If you are eager to hear more on Microsoft’s upcoming Windows Phone 7 Series operating system, we have fresh details on the OS, direct from Microsoft’s MIX10 event in Las Vegas.

As reported from Pocket-Lint, Microsoft were demoing some new features at the event, such as how supported handsets will make use of their Silverlight technology – now at version 4.0.

Microsoft states that developers will have control over things like the accelerometer, camera and video, location services, and perhaps best of all – multitouch features for handsets that support it.

The company also explained how purchases could be made on the Phone 7 Marketplace, using examples such as one-time credit card purchases and mobile operator billing.

Companies signed up to develop Apps and Games for Windows Phone 7 so far, include the likes of EA, Namco, Sling Media, Shazam, IMDB and Foursquare.
