wm7word The hacked Windows Phone 7 emulator has revealed more than just a task manager and file explorer.  Hidden in its depths were also the first looks at Windows Phone 7 Office, and it certainly does not look like anything to get excited about. The application looks as uninspiring as before, both in terms of UI and capabilities, and certainly does not bolster Microsoft’s argument that the OS is designed for business as much as pleasure.
For an example of what has been previously envisioned for Windows Mobile 7, see the design mock-up to the right, which while appearing rather unusable from a UI point of view, certainly promised a much fuller experience than the screen shots above (cut and paste for example).
