Windows Phone 7 is coming

But is this a revolution.

Yesterday, it was reported on a number of sites that Microsoft had released a teaser for their upcoming Windows Phone 7 devices. And you know what? I’m looking forward to Windows Phone 7. Listening to guys like Paul Thurrott and his Windows Weekly podcast I’m hearing a lot of good things about Windows Phone 7. And, it does help that they are adopting the Zune UI.

For those few that managed to get a Zune HD, you will know that it’s actually a pretty good device. At least that is what I’ve heard of the device as its not available up here in Canada, (I’m not mad).

Personally, I’m glad to see Microsoft get back in the cell phone game, as Windows Mobile 6 was a bit of a disappointment for many people. Sure it did improve with updates, but the updates came a bit too late in the game. And Apple was allowed to run away with the market.

In any case, if the rumours are true we should be seeing some Windows Phone 7 devices arriving in the next few months and so I’ll leave any judgement of the phones until they come out. What about you? Are you looking forward to Windows Phone 7?
