We are only moments away from the start of the Microsoft media event where the company is expected to launch the new Windows Phone 7. Microsoft has already been making a lot of updates in the back-end to prep up their infrastructure to handle the new platform. As we wrote just sometime back, the new Zune desktop software just received an update in this regard.
Though the OS launches today, the handsets are not expected to come until later. From what we’ve heard until now, the first Windows Phone 7 based handsets are expected to launch in Europe in October 21 and in USA on November 8. We hope these dates will be officially announced during this conference.
Microsoft is live-streaming the announcement. You can now head over to this link to start watching the announcement live.
