Windows Phone 7 is that brand new mobile operating system Microsoft is heavily banking on to get it back in the smartphone business. Whether it will succeed or not is still anybody's guess, but at least we can now be a tad surer that the Redmond-based giant is well on track to deliver the latest reincarnation of the software. This is due to Microsoft's recent presentation and, to be more precise, its COO, Kevin Turner, who loudly proclaimed that Windows Phone 7 should be expected to make its first European appearance in October, while the U.S. should hold its breath until November.
Excited as we are, we couldn't help but notice the COO saying that WP7 will have nothing to do with Microsoft's previous efforts and “that's a good thing”. Way to go, Kev, self-criticism should be the key to success!
