The lucky folks of The Inquirer have managed to have a look at the final build of Windows Phone, the OS formerly known as Windows Mobile 6.5. We’ll never understand why Microsoft changed a good name with a silly one, but as long as the “bad press” is gone, we’ll have to do with the bad branding.
Thanks to the guys at The Inquirer we learn that Windows Phone comes with a Zune-like user interface, Marketplace for Windows Phone and it also uses the free My Phone sync service. Microsoft Tag is also among the features and it gets mentioned, once again, that Microsoft will quit using the Windows Mobile 6.5 branding for good and forever, moving on to the Windows Phone age.
What do you say? Good call or bad branding?
