Start screen

Microsoft is showing off on Monday the new version of its long-anticipated (and oft-delayed) mobile phone operating system. Here's a look at Windows Phone 7 Series' very Zune-like interface.

The central point of the new start screen are various "live tiles" which can be used to point to an application, a hub (such as photos or music), a Web site, or even an individual contact. Like a widget, such tiles can also contain various status updates, such as the number of new messages.

People are people

The people hub is designed as more than just an address book, offering status updates from Facebook as well as tiles to re-connect with people with whom you have recently had either a phone conversation, exchanged e-mail, or had other some other type of contact.
