The First Windows Phone 7 Commercial Debuts [Video]
This is the first commercial for Windows Phone 7, which was announced on 10/4/10 at a press conference from Microsoft.
In case you didn’t know or don’t care, Windows Phone 7 is Microsoft’s new foray into the mobile world. They’re getting a bit of a late start, but Windows Phone is hoping to compete directly with Apple’s popular iPhone/iOS and Google’s Android (yea, Palm WebOS and Blackberry OS are somewhere in this race too, but I don’t care for either).
Here is the commercial, embedded for easy watching:
I think the commercial is actually pretty good, and the OS experience looks decent too. It’ll be interesting to see where Windows Phone goes and how it stacks up to iOS with both consumers and developers, it’s certainly an uphill battle at this point.
Now I wonder if Microsoft plans to use Windows Phone as a tablet OS too, or if they’re going to dump Windows 7 onto touchscreens. If Windows 7 is their definitive tablet OS, the iPad has already won that side of the war.
