Windows Phone 7 “pre-alpha”, still great

Pocketnow have published some more video from Microsoft’s New York event yesterday.  The video appears to show the same handset from the IntoMobile video, but in a longer video which shows more features of the OS.

Again, besides delays due to poor connectivity the experience proved very smooth.  The demonstrator, a 9 year Microsoft veteran, however revealed the OS is current still just pre-alpha, but he did go on to promise that handsets will be available by Christmas this year.

Of note mentioned during the demo is a great Zune feature which made it to the handset after all – Auto-synching with your desktop over WIFI when the phone gets plugged into power, making it a truly wireless device.
