TechEd 2010: Windows Phone 7 Screencaps – Obvious Visual Changes

By Jamie Pert - Jun 9, 2010

Brushing aside any information regarding the Apple iPhone 4, which clearly won the popularity contest between Apple’s WWDC and Microsoft’s TechEd showcasing the Windows Phone 7 yesterday, we reveal some new screencaps of Microsoft’s upcoming mobile OS, and the visual changes that it has received since Microsoft MIX and it’s debut at the Mobile World Congress 2010.

One of the most obvious things that we can notice from the new screencaps (seen here) , is the fact that the screen looks more compact than on previous occasions. The text looks smaller, and there is a new icon for Outlook, Marketplace and a sport icon too. Also, lots of icons have been added in the application menus, making us believe that this is as close as we are going to get to the final build for a while.

With the ever-growing popularity of Google Android, smartphone manufacturers are probably wondering why they would pay to have Windows Phone 7 installed on a smartphone when they can install Android for free, Microsoft are probably hoping that these screens will increase Windows Phone 7’s appeal.
