According to an article over at PC World, Windows Mobile 7 is all about the Social Networks and will be core to the mobile device.
The news comes through a job post on Microsoft’s Entertainment and Devices job site.
" ‘Social networks’ and ‘mobile phones’ are two rapidly evolving socio-cultural phenomena that deeply impact the way in which people interact with each other. How would you like to be at the confluence of these phenomena, not as an observer but as someone who is defining the course?
"The Windows Mobile 7 Communications group is building experiences on the phone that present your content — friends, pictures, messages, events — to you in immersive and engaging ways. Our vision is to bring social networks to life by integrating them into the core experience of the phone. For example, imagine seeing all the newsfeeds from all the networks you care about in a single hub on the phone. Or imagine the phone instantly telling you what your friend is doing and where he is when you get a call from him."
The job posting goes on to explain that Microsoft wants to build a "mobile social platform" that’ll encourage developers to create socially focused applications for the system. It states that the company has "just begun drawing the first lines" of the platform and hints at the lofty goals surrounding the Windows Mobile 7 release.
According to the job post "The vision of WM7 and especially the communications team is ambitious…We are not building yet another cool phone, but one that is truly personal and relevant. Yes, the competition is stiff, but it’s exceeded only by our desire to win. Come help us build this epic phone."
Looks like Windows Phone/Mobile 7 could be something special!
