"We saw the official announcement of WP7 in February at Mobile World Congress and have seen various details revealed at events since that time. I was still skeptical of the functionality and capability of the new operating system and after the recent Kin disaster I honestly wasn't expecting much from Microsoft. After using the Technical Preview version of Windows Phone 7 in an up close and personal way I can honestly say that I am quite excited for the holiday season when we will see these devices launching from Microsoft."
By now you should know that Microsoft has just sent a few thousand Windows Phone 7 technical preview devices to developers (and some reviewers) to give them a head start on getting their apps ready for the eventual launch. Matthew Miller does Microsoft's smartphone reboot justice - the video above is just one of six, in addition to over 90 images and as in depth a review of WP7 in its current state as you'll find. Microsoft has promised a lot with WP7, but the real test is the actual consumer experience. If Matthew's experience is any sample, even with a pre-beta version, then WP7 is going to be a smash hit come Christmas.
