Windows Phone 7 by Microsoft

Not to be outdone by the milestones of Google’s mobile operating system Android, Microsoft also cooked up its own: Windows Phone 7. It recently launched in the US and Canada, Singapore, Europe and Australia. Asia won’t be far behind this 2011. It was released during the Mobile World Congress 2010 in Barcelona and so far, the feedback is positive.
Windows Phone 7 is the direct descendant of Windows Mobile and here are some of the new integrated features:
- cut, copy and paste
- Adobe Flash
- YouTube video-playing app

Games can be played as well and they will source from the XBox Live well. Upon its release, however, there were complaints that it lacked APIs or Application Programming Interfaces. Microsoft has also repeatedly stated that they will be strict with its content restrictions so good luck with hackers. But if gamers found it easy to hack the Microsoft Kinect, how long before the Windows Phone 7 is left untouched.

Here are more of the system requirements your device must have to operate Windows Phone 7: 
- Capacitive, 4-point multi-touch screen with WVGA (800×480) resolution
- 1 GHz ARM v7 “Cortex/Scorpion” or better processor
- DirectX9 rendering-capable GPU
- 256MB of RAM with at least 8GB of Flash memory
- Accelerometer with compass, ambient light sensor, proximity sensor and Assisted GPS
- 5-megapixel camera with an LED flash
- FM radio tuner
- 6 dedicated hardware buttons – back, Start, search, camera, power/sleep and Volume Up and Down
