Microsoft COO just announced today the launch date of Windows Phone 7. It will be October in Europe and November in the US.
The slide below is pretty interesting. The first thing mentioned is the experience and the key services. Offering a good experience on Facebook and services like Zune Music, Xbox live and Office will make a difference and may save the platform.
I really enjoyed the title of the slide “Getting Back in The Game”, when you know the typical arrogant Microsoft VP.
What I enjoyed most in this video is the last sentence:
” It’s not like any phone you’ve ever seen from Microsoft. Ladies and Gentlemen I think that’s a good thing.”
I would reply:
You’re not alone mate. 🙂 And I hope you’re right, or you and Steve Ballmer will be looking for a job very soon.
