Microsoft has its mobile future at stake with the launch of Windows Phone 7. Companies like Google and Apple managed to completely circumvent Microsoft's ecosystem in the span of just a few years with Android and the iPhone, for the most common tasks. This forced the Redmond giant to completely rethink its mobile strategy, and start creating a new OS from scratch, in order to replace its aging Windows Mobile.

The brand new Windows Phone 7 will be launched to a great fanfare, with events in New York and London. This is a pivotal moment for one of the world's most known brands, which popularized computing as we know it, and made its founder the richest person in the world in the process. We'll be blogging live from both keynote presentation, focusing our attention mainly towards the one in NYC, where center stage are supposed to take Microsoft's CEO Steve Ballmer, and AT&T's Ralph de la Vega - the head of the premier carrier for Windows Phone 7 in the US.

Check out our live updates below, then stay tuned for our hands-on articles with the newly-announced Windows Phone 7 smartphones!

Why is Microsoft pulling an "Apple" by only releasing Windows Mobile 7 to GSM providers? Sprint has the fastest mobile web network!

when compared to HSPA+ speeds, 9 out of ten tests showed T-mobile's data network was about three times faster than sprint's 4g network. Plus it doesn't make sense for a company to have exclusive arrangements with CDMA companies because it limits their market to primarily North America since the majority of the world uses GSM as a global standard
