マイクロソフトが新モバイルプラットフォーム Windows Phone 7 Seriesを発表しました。最大の特徴は、ルック&フィールから中身のコードまで、これまでのWindows Mobile とはまったく違う新しいスマートフォンOSへと変化したこと。スタート画面はタイルベースのアプリアイコンやコンタクトショートカット、ウィジェットが縦に並ぶホームスクリーンになり、画面遷移やシンプルなメニューなどは Zune HDと非常に良く似たデザインが採用されています。ソーシャルネットワーク関連の強化や Xbox LIVEの統合もうわさされていたとおり。コンタクトを開けば、Facebook や Twitterなど複数のサービスから最新のアップデートを統合して表示します。Xbox LIVEはXbox 360 や Games for Windows LIVE と同様にアバターや ゲーマータグをそのまま統合。メディア再生部分はZune HDプレーヤをサブセットとしてそのまま含むような感覚です。

また従来のWindows Mobile と異なり、ハードウェアとソフトウェアがより強く結びついた垂直モデルを採用しているのも特徴です。マイクロソフトは具体的な採用CPU や速度・メモリー容量などを含む要求仕様を設定しており、またソフトウェアでも キャリア・メーカー独自のUI (たとえば Sense UI や TouchWizなど) は採用できないことになっています。タッチスクリーン以外に必須のボタンは戻る・スタート (Windows)・検索 (Bing)の3つ。

Windows Phone 7 Seriesの端末を提供するキャリアパートナーとしては、AT&T, Deutsche Telekom AG, Orange, SFR, Sprint, Telecom Italia, Telefónica, Telstra, T-Mobile USA, Verizon Wireless, Vodafoneが挙げられています。ハードウェアパートナーはDell, Garmin-Asus, HTC, HP, LG, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, 東芝, Qualcomm など。ただしMWCの時点では、サードパーティー製のWindows Phone 7端末は公開されず、マイクロソフトの評価デバイスのみが展示されます。写真や 動画は公開されしだい追加してゆきます。

Microsoft Unveils Windows Phone 7 Series

New phones designed for life in motion to debut at holiday 2010.

BARCELONA, Spain - Feb. 15, 2010 - Today at Mobile World Congress 2010, Microsoft Corp. CEO Steve Ballmer unveiled the next generation of Windows® Phones, Windows Phone 7 Series. With this new platform, Microsoft offers a fresh approach to phone software, distinguished by smart design and truly integrated experiences that bring to the surface the content people care about from the Web and applications. For the first time ever, Microsoft will bring together Xbox LIVE games and the Zune music and video experience on a mobile phone, exclusively on Windows Phone 7 Series. Partners have already started building phones; customers will be able to purchase the first phones in stores by holiday 2010.

"Today, I'm proud to introduce Windows Phone 7 Series, the next generation of Windows Phones," said Steve Ballmer, chief executive officer at Microsoft. "In a crowded market filled with phones that look the same and do the same things, I challenged the team to deliver a different kind of mobile experience. Windows Phone 7 Series marks a turning point toward phones that truly reflect the speed of people's lives and their need to connect to other people and all kinds of seamless experiences."

Designed for Life in Motion

With Windows Phone 7 Series, Microsoft takes a fundamentally different approach to phone software. Smart design begins with a new, holistic design system that informs every aspect of the phone, from its visually appealing layout and motion to its function and hardware integration. On the Start screen, dynamically updated "live tiles" show users real-time content directly, breaking the mold of static icons that serve as an intermediate step on the way to an application. Create a tile of a friend, and the user gains a readable, up-to-date view of a friend's latest pictures and posts, just by glancing at Start.

Every Windows Phone 7 Series phone will come with a dedicated hardware button for Bing, providing one-click access to search from anywhere on the phone, while a special implementation of Bing search provides intent-specific results, delivering the most relevant Web or local results, depending on the type of query.

Windows Phone 7 Series creates an unrivaled set of integrated experiences on a phone through Windows Phone hubs. Hubs bring together related content from the Web, applications and services into a single view to simplify common tasks. Windows Phone 7 Series includes six hubs built on specific themes reflecting activities that matter most to people:

People. This hub delivers an engaging social experience by bringing together relevant content based on the person, including his or her live feeds from social networks and photos. It also provides a central place from which to post updates to Facebook and Windows Live in one step.
Pictures. This hub makes it easy to share pictures and video to a social network in one step. Windows Phone 7 Series also brings together a user's photos by integrating with the Web and PC, making the phone the ideal place to view a person's entire picture and video collection.
Games. This hub delivers the first and only official Xbox LIVE experience on a phone, including Xbox LIVE games, Spotlight feed and the ability to see a gamer's avatar, Achievements and gamer profile. With more than 23 million active members around the world, Xbox LIVE unlocks a world of friends, games and entertainment on Xbox 360, and now also on Windows Phone 7 Series.
Music + Video. This hub creates an incredible media experience that brings the best of Zune, including content from a user's PC, online music services and even a built-in FM radio into one simple place that is all about music and video. Users can turn their media experience into a social one with Zune Social on a PC and share their media recommendations with like-minded music lovers. The playback experience is rich and easy to navigate, and immerses the listener in the content.
Marketplace. This hub allows the user to easily discover and load the phone with certified applications and games.
Office. This hub brings the familiar experience of the world's leading productivity software to the Windows Phone. With access to Office, OneNote and SharePoint Workspace all in one place, users can easily read, edit and share documents. With the additional power of Outlook Mobile, users stay productive and up to date while on the go.

Partners from around the world have committed to include Windows Phone 7 Series in their portfolio plans. They include mobile operators AT&T, Deutsche Telekom AG, Orange, SFR, Sprint, Telecom Italia, Telefónica, Telstra, T-Mobile USA, Verizon Wireless and Vodafone, and manufacturers Dell, Garmin-Asus, HTC Corp., HP, LG, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, Toshiba and Qualcomm Inc.
