By now I’m sure most of you are aware of this, but here’s the official PR about the new phone from Microsoft. I have to admit I’m curious about it, tried to get the Focus from Samsung but they’re backlogged with review requests. Working on my Verizon contact though so hopefully I can get one from them soon.
The new Windows Phones offer a different kind of phone experience designed to get users in, out and back to life. With Windows Phone, Microsoft set out to design a mobile experience that would bring the things people care about most right to the start screen. In doing so, Windows Phone combines basic everyday tasks — tasks associated with e-mail or activities related to taking and sharing pictures — so people can do more in fewer steps.
