Few technologies have evolved as quickly as mobile phones. We’ve moved far beyond
making simple calls and sending texts. Today phones are expected to be mobile office
command centers, entertainment devices, and your hub for social connectivity.
With the introduction of
Windows Phone 7, Microsoft is now taking a fundamentally different
approach to phone software. Windows Phone 7 is more than just a new interface.
Microsoft started over, beginning with the complete redesign of the operating system,
hardware, and taking a fresh look at the partner networks.
The new phone and platform will combine the Web, powerful applications, and vast
array of services into one simple personalized experience. With the announcement
of Windows Phone 7, and with Silverlight as its platform, Vertigo immediately
knew that Mobile was in our future.
Our leadership in Silverlight and Touch make Windows Phone 7 a natural
addition to Vertigo’s core focus. The three pillars for Vertigo’s design and development
practices are now Silverlight, Touch, and Mobile.
We’re beginning with the showcase of two Windows Phone 7 prototypes, one
for Shazam and one for Netflix which were shown off at Scott Guthrie’s MIX10 Keynote
in Las Vegas.
