Microsoft seems to have a winner with the Windows Phone 7 series. After years and years of being ignored and maligned for their (truly crappy) Windows Mobile OS, Redmond seems to have figured out what phones need. Windows Phone 7 is stylish, smooth, and seems to be about as intuitive as it gets. But don't take my word for it; CNET has a video.

At two minutes in, we get to see the phone in use. Pinch zoom is shown off, as was a simple application and the UI itself. Microsoft's unique 'tile' based approach actually looks a lot more useful than widgets. The XBox Live tile shows your avatar photo and achievements. When you select XBox Live, the different games you have available are shown as tiles in that secondary screen.

The big focus for Windows Phone 7 seems to be ease of developer use. Microsoft is courting app makers in a very big way. They want what Apple has, and if they aren't careful they just might get it.
