"Ever since Microsoft announced Windows Phone 7 at the Mobile World Congress, loads of - sometimes contradictory - information has been pouring out of Microsoft. Given our traditionally good relationship with Microsoft Germany, I have managed to grab a hold of Microsoft Germany's Mobile Technical Evangelist #1. As usual, he was extremely talkative and had a lot to say on Microsoft's future roadmap."
Tam Hanna from Tamms PPC - The Windows Phone Blog had an opportunity to sit with Frank Prengel and learn more about Microsoft's thinking about their mobile platforms. It is worth a few moments of your time to read the interview as the discussion is quite far reaching. A couple of the highlights include Prengel's comment that "Windows Phone 7 is a new kind of smartphone which is designed for people who are looking for a mobile platform that is fresh, exciting, and supports them in everything they do in their private and business life". He also comments that the Windows Mobile platform was really intended to replicate the desktop experience on a phone, while with the first release of Windows Phone 7 the focus is on the user's experience.
