WPC Windows Phone 7 presentation liveblog transcript

WPC 2010 Phone7, which seems to be a pretty good Windows Phone 7 blog, have done us all a favour and blogged the content of Andy Lees’s WPC 2010 presentation.

I have just culled the most interesting bits, but pop over to Phone7 for the full details:

  • Windows Phone 7 automatically syncs with your personal cloud. Music you download on your PC, can be uploaded to your cloud (which is done automatically via the Zune Marketplace)  and automatically available in your Music Hub on your WP7 device, for example.
  • Customisable lock screen with extra info available (e.g. upcoming meetings)
  • Quick text correction.
  • Same contact details are merged from various sources (e.g. Exchange and Windows Live), so that there’s only one instance of the contact. However, it’s still possible to see what source the information is coming from.
  • Type flight details in Bing and it will return information such as delays, timings etc…
  • Consistent hardware targets for a ‘design once – run everywhere’ development process.
  • Development devices starting to be shipped tomorrow
  • Zune services expanding around the world.
  • New services including a companion site for your phone free of charge. Remote wipe, lock etc…
  • Available simultaneously for operators around the world
  • Launching in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish
  • WP7 is for business and consumers.
  • Andy Lees recapping presentation and emphasising the fact that the PC, Xbox and Windows Phone 7 will all be integrated together.

Of particular interest to me is that your music will automatically be uploaded to the cloud, that contacts will be merged from various sources, and that the lock screen will be customizable.
