Today Microsoft unveiled a new stack of Windows phones worldwide. With a Windows phone, people can explore their phone with touch, surf internet on great mobile browser. There are two new services that allow to backup and share data from their phone to Web and buy new applications from Windows Marketplace.
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said:
We all want to connect quickly to the people and information that’s important to us from across our lives at work and at home, A Windows phone lets people take their entire world of digital information, communications, applications and entertainment with them wherever they go.
With a Windows phone, people will have familiar work and play experiences right from their Start button, including these:
- A new enhanced Windows Live experience with What’s New feeds and improved Windows Live photo sharing across major social networking sites (such as Twitter, Facebook, MySpace and Flickr).
- A best-in-class e-mail experience and the ability to manage multiple accounts right from their phone with Outlook Mobile and Exchange Server synchronization.
- The ability to use PowerPoint and open and edit Word and Excel documents from their phone with Microsoft Office Mobile.
- The power to sync files on the phone through Windows Live Media Manager and play media files seamlessly with Windows Media Player.
- A redesigned Windows Internet Explorer mobile browser with Adobe Flash Lite that brings the mobile Web browsing experience closer to what people have come to expect from their PC.
So today has been remarked as the last day of the "Windows Mobile" device brand with availability of Windows phone. Microsoft is expecting to deliver more than 30 new phones in more than 20 countries by the end of 2009.
