Conclusion: Windows Phone 7 is far from perfect and is missing some important functionality, but overall this is a refreshing change for Microsoft. Effectively starting with a fresh canvas, Windows Phone 7 is slick, easy to use and well designed.
Pros: Refreshing UI, excellent performance, excellent Office integration, heavy social network integration, great on-screen keyboard
Cons: No copy and paste, no multitasking, limited controls in landscape browser view, no native Twitter support, no Flash support in IE, no DivX/Xvid support, no tethering
Conclusion: It is clear that Windows Phone 7 is an impressive consumer mobile operating system, with some nice touches and flashes of inspiration. We like the refreshing departure from sometimes busy interfaces that you’ll find elsewhere: Microsoft haven’t been scared to use white space and with screen sizes...
Pros: Refreshing and innovative design, looks great, excellent use of backgrounds and flowing text, Zune offering looks comprehensive, online find, lock and wipe options
Cons: Early days for a new OS, no internet video support, copy and paste not available yet, no Twitter integration, Marketplace and Xbox Live still relative unknowns
