Microsoft Announces Windows Phone Live


Sr. VP of Microsoft's Mobile Communications Business, Andy Lees today showed Microsoft partners a line of consumer products and services that are connected with one another. He?s also showing off our own Windows Phone 7 and sharing a few updates on features and capabilities.

Microsoft is talking about connected entertainment, the ability to enjoy experiences on whatever device or machine you?re using throughout the day, without needing an entirely different set of applications or credentials. This holiday connected entertainment from Microsoft will span Windows 7 PCs, the Xbox 360 with Kinect and Windows Phone 7, coupled with services such as Xbox Live for games, Zune for music and video, Windows Live for email, calendars, pictures and services, and Bing.

Windows Phone 7 integrates experiences by consolidating common tasks and services around shared hubs that put the focus on what you want to do rather than putting the onus on you to move in and out of various apps.

Bing comes built in, so just about wherever you go on your Windows Phone 7, search is only a button away. The Music + Videos hub draw upon the Zune software. Windows Phone 7 will connect with Zune software on the PC through Wi-Fi to access and manage music, video, high-resolution photos and other large file content. Similarly, the Games hub features Xbox Live and gamer content and a place for you to invite friends for a game. When it?s time for some work, the Office hub brings together the Office suite: OneNote, Word, PowerPoint, and even SharePoint server integration. And, you can take advantage of the phone?s integration with Web based email and calendaring from Windows Live, Gmail and others, plus hosted Exchange accounts.

Through a push notification service that Microsoft has also extended to third party app developers, apps will be able to deliver real time updates. This way you know you?re getting the latest info at a glance, either as banner-style alerts or straight to the personalized live tiles on your phone?s Start screen. A feature Microsoft is discussing for the first time today is the new Windows Phone Live companion site that gives people a central place to see pictures they?ve published, view their Windows Live calendar and contacts, exchange OneNote files and access other information shared between the phone and the Web. The site will offer 25GB of SkyDrive and host the Find My Phone service, which allows people to find and manage a missing phone with map, ring, lock and erase capabilities right from your PC ? and all for free.

Microsoft said that Windows Phone 7 will be available in the holiday season.

During initial availability, Windows Phone 7 will support 5 languages; English, French, Italian, German and Spanish. The Windows Phone Marketplace will support the buying and selling of applications in 17 countries; Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, UK and United States.
