He mentions that Windows Phone 7 was designed for use in personal and professional life, but was unfortunately not able to provide much evidence for this. He however did say that Microsoft intended to support Windows Mobile 6.5 as long as the market wanted it.

We have heard however that this, like many other features, will be added in the future.
Keep an eye on ZDNet for part 2 of their interview, coming soon.
