We're all hoping it will revive Microsoft's mobile phone fortunes, so it's pleasing to hear that their new Windows Phone 7 operating system will run on all five of the major networks. Widely expected to arrive next month, Microsoft has also announced that leading UK retailers The Carphone Warehouse and Phones 4u will also sell the Windows Phone 7 range.
Rumours are rife as to what we can expect from the Windows Phone 7 range. What we do know is that there will be a new and much improved interface from previous Windows Phones, with 'live tiles' and less fiddly menu systems, as well as the ability to play Xbox Live games and music and videos via Zune.
LG, HTC and Samsung are all expected to unveil handsets that run on Windows Phone 7 in the near future.
