Microsoft's Robbie Bach gives details on a new platform called Windows Phone, which features a mobile app store. The company also unveils updates to Zune HD and Xbox 360, including the ability to stream HD video to Microsoft's gaming console.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:04 >> Ms. Del Conte: Welcome to the Runway. This is not a fashion show. This is Microsoft's Open House. The company came out to New York to show off their 2009 lineup of holiday offerings. One of which is Windows Phone. Those are Windows mobile phones. >> Phones are personal. They should be personal. They should be customizable. You should be able to get exactly the phone you want. The first service we're announcing today is for Windows Marketplace for Mobiles. This is the one-stop shop to get added value applications on top of what comes with a Windows Phone. So there literally will be hundreds of applications, Facebook, Twitter, and others all the ones you'd expect available at the start. And that number will grow dramatically through the end of the year. Historically our phone products have been more about business software and about mail support for Exchange working in the enterprise. What's changing today is we're adding to that integration with your lifestyle. >> Ms. Del Conte: There's a new feature called my Find My Phone where you can remotely locate your phone, force it to ring even if it's on silent. ^M00:01:00. [ Phone ring ] ^M00:01:06 >> Maybe you want to protect the phone. You've got some sensitive data. It's a business phone. So we can enable you to lock it. We can enable you to remotely wipe it from a PC. >> Ms. Del Conte: In addition to new games, this fall the xf will support Facebook, Twitter, last.fm and other social networking right from your home living room. The new high definition Zune now streams high definition video through the Xbox. >> So this fall you'll be able to get on-demand movies and TV shows shown in 1080d brought to you by Zune on the Xbox. >> Ms. Del Conte: Microsoft is also showing off Windows 7 which launches on October 22.
