Windows Phone 7 Release Recap

Today Microsoft announced their line of Windows 7 Phones and carriers. The phones will be available this holiday season, the phones will be from four different manufacturers: HTC, Dell, LG, and Samsung. The Windows Phone 7 will include Office Mobile, Zune Pass, and access to Xbox Live. I honestly think the most interesting part is the Xbox Live features.
