VIDEO: Walkthrough of MSFT's Windows Phone 7

It seems rumors that Windows Phone 7 will launch on October 11 have kicked things off in the leaks department. We've gotten a peek at not one but two Windows Phone 7 devices in the last 24 hours and these aren't just blurry photos. Oh no. One of them is a 12-minute video shot at Gnomedex and showing the finer points of Windows Phone 7 and a glimpse of Asus' upcoming hardware for the new OS.

Though the video doesn't give much away about the phone itself, it does provide plenty of opportunity for gawking, and we know from the Windows Phone 7 minimum requirements that all devices must have at least a 1GHz processor, an WVGA (800x480) display, 256MB of RAM and 8 GB of storage, 5-megapixel camera with flash, an FM tuner and six dedicated hardware buttons back, start, search, camera, power/sleep and volume up and down.

The other leak is a photo of Samsung's upcoming Windows Phone 7 offering. Again, not much is known about this device but the screen shows 8GB of storage, and the back of the device sports a camera and LED flash.

 

Having watched the video demo above, are you tempted to go Windows Phone 7 with your next phone? Let us know in the comments below!

    I think it looks cool, but it look a bit over complicated. Kind of like all MS products.

    Looks nice and smooth... absolutely better than Win Mobile 6.5
    I just wonder what the battery life is like with all the widgets running on the home screen?....

    Actually this thing looks way cooler than I would have imagined it. So now I'm torn between a droid and this thing.
    Oh and, Rule 31 on the coffee chick.

    Looks like it'll come down to the apps just like it has with the current platforms. But there's a potential there that leaves me excited to see what comes from it.

    I like this and i probably buy the second gen of this device but.

    Why do the title words keep getting cutoff on the right of the screen? Example Market just says Marke.

    sicundercoverI like this and i probably buy the second gen of this device but. Why do the title words keep getting cutoff on the right of the screen? Example Market just says Marke.It's the same Zune interface.. I really wished tehy changed that...
    Apparently the Title is suppose to show as you scroll to the next screen.... One of those things that bothers some people but still makes it to the final release version...
