Yesterday was a big day for Microsoft, as this was the first day that they publically got their mobile OS business back on track with the unveiling of Windows Phone 7. In total ten handsets were shown to the media by Steve Ballmer from four different brands: Dell, HTC, LG and Samsung.
This is still early days for WP7, and there are hopes that Motorola will jump on board, but that could be a long way down the line — maybe they want to see how well the new mobile OS does before committing?
The ten handsets are as follows, there are five from HTC: 7 Surround, HD7, 7 Mozart, 7 Trophy and the HD7 Pro. There are two from LG: Optimus 7Q and the Optimus 7. Samsung also has two: Focus and the Omnia 7. The tough phone from the group is the Dell Venue Pro.
We have already taken a closer look at some of these upcoming Windows Phone 7 handsets, with some standing out more than others. Take the Samsung Omnia 7, the hardware seems to perform very well with the new mobile OS, and looks slightly larger than the iPhone 4.
It will be a tough choice to choose which handset is right for you, but we are certain that more details and reviews before release will help you come to a decision.
