Today at Mobile World Congress 2010, Microsoft unveiled the next generation of Windows Phones, Windows Phone 7 Series.
For the first time ever, Microsoft will bring together Xbox LIVE games with the Zune music and video experience on a mobile phone, exclusively on the Windows Phone 7 Series. See these Windows 7 Phone screen shots.

Microsoft partners have already started building phones and you will be able to purchase the first Windows 7 phones in stores by holiday 2010.

With the Windows Phone 7 Series, Microsoft says they are taking a fundamentally different approach to phone software.
The Windows Phone design begins with a new, holistic design system that informs every aspect of the phone, from its visually appealing layout and motion to its function and hardware integration. On the Start screen, dynamically updated "live tiles" show users real-time content directly, breaking the mold of static icons that serve as an intermediate step on the way to an application. Create a tile of a friend, and the user gains a readable, up-to-date view of a friend's latest pictures and posts, just by glancing at Start.

Every Windows Phone 7 Series phone will come with a dedicated hardware button for Bing, providing one-click access to search from anywhere on the phone, while a special implementation of Bing search provides intent-specific results, delivering the most relevant Web or local results, depending on the type of query.

Partners from around the world have committed to include Windows Phone 7 Series in their portfolio plans. They include mobile operators AT&T, Deutsche Telekom AG, Orange, SFR, Sprint, Telecom Italia, Telefonica, Telstra, T-Mobile USA, Verizon Wireless and Vodafone, and manufacturers Dell, Garmin-Asus, HTC Corp., HP, LG, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, Toshiba and Qualcomm Inc. The first phones will be available by holiday 2010.

Apple will have to up the ante with the iPhone 2010 to stay ahead of the smartphone game. 2010 will be a very cool year for smartphones.
