Just watched some nice demos of Microsoft's next generation of mobile phones - the Windows Phone 7 Series.

You can have a look yourself at the fancy stuff on the new website, http://windowsphone7series.com.

These devices should be out in time for Christmas.

Anyone interesting in the development aspects will have to wait a month for the announcements at MIX10 in mid-March.

In the meantime, you can follow Charlie Kindel (@CKindel) on Twitter or subscribe to his blog for news.
