What the weather looks like outside see if they have any new messages and see what their friends are up to.
Microsoft -- all of that right into the home straight.
I can click on people and it takes -- right into FaceBook and I get to see all of my friends right in the beautiful -- Camera application works great in -- it works without even having -- -- phone on at all simply touch the button at the top on the Samsung model.
And it launches the camera application Microsoft told me they wanted to try to rival what it's like.
To use -- point and shoot camera.
I think they have accomplished that right inside -- another great feature that camera allows you to edit photos here's a photo my son normal.
And then I've had little black and white -- to it right on the so if you're Microsoft how do you come up with something fresh how do you take what we know about mobile phones and put a new spin on.
Take for instance the photos application once you've taken a photo.
Most of us one this year right with FaceBook we want to share with our social networks one click lets me share with any social network that I want.
Click on them comment instead of having to launch -- FaceBook application separately.

Text them right from the photos application as soon as you log into your phone.
You get to see what your family and friends are up -- under any latest status messages from your family -- -- -- right when you turn on.

You want to keep track of -- add to those points on the mobile platform.
He can right from the Xbox Live application on the phone.
So far there are a lot of games built for Xbox Live on the mobile platform.
But Microsoft assures me.
Some criticisms of the early iPhone launches were no multitasking.
No flash on the -- he wouldn't be able to watch different web videos -- flash based.
It's the same with Windows Phone 7 there's no flash and there's no multitasking him.
There's no cut and paste which you'll remember was a big criticism of the early iPhone one criticism I have is the discovery.
I wanna do a search for particular app I'm also getting.
Music selections and so it's giving me a universal approach to search when I just want to discover new and exciting applications that -- could put.
