Windows® Phone - designed to get to everything you love easier and faster.
Start Screen & Live Tiles - Less stop and stare. More glance and go.
One glance tells you what's going on, what's happening next and what you've missed. Depending on the app, Start's animated Live Tiles might show messages and appointments, news and weather or game and friend statuses - all refreshed wirelessly. It's also yours to customise: pin people, apps, playlists and pictures to the Start screen so they're always at your fingertips.
People Hub - Less out of touch. More in the know.
This is social central, a place to stay connected and in the loop. Skim your Facebook and Windows Live feeds and photos, call, text or mail your friends, then get directions to their place. From the Me Card, you can update your status or change your profile picture across multiple networks.
Search - Less searching. More finding.
Whatever your question, one button to Bing™ and you get just what you're looking for. Search the web, map an address and get turn-by-turn guidance down to a street-level look at your final destination. It's your avenue to fast answers.
Email and Calendar - Less clutter. More clarity.
Only Windows Phone has Outlook Mobile so you can sort, scan and manage your mail with ease. Cut through the clutter to see only unread, urgent, or flagged messages - or hit Search to pinpoint a specific mail. Windows Phone also combines your work and personal calendars in a single, colour-coded view, making it easier to spot conflicts and manage your life.
Games Hub - Less time out. More game on.
The Games Hub is your on-the-go arcade. Whether you're a fan of word games, strategy or action, there's something for everyone in Marketplace. Play solo or use the free Xbox LIVE® service to match wits with friends wherever you are. Your avatar travels with you and gamer profiles track high scores and victories.
Music + Videos Hub - Less pause. More play.
Your anytime entertainment centre can play music synced wirelessly from your PC or stream and download new tunes from Marketplace. Enjoy playlists, listen to podcasts, and recommend songs to friends. There's a built-in FM radio and a high-res screen perfect for watching TV shows, movies or your own clips. Add an optional Zune Pass subscription to access millions of songs for one low monthly fee.
Camera + Pictures Hub - Less missed it. More got it.
Go from pocket to picture to Facebook in seconds. With Windows Phone, sharing pictures is as easy as taking them. Press the camera button to snap photos fast, even when your phone is locked. Then send favourites to friends, or post them to Facebook or Windows Live.
Internet explorer mobile: Less waiting. More surfing.
Internet Explorer Mobile puts the web in your pocket, making it easy to surf on the move. Open as many as six tabs, then hop between websites. The address bar suggests sites as you type and browsing is easy: scroll with a flick of the finger or zoom with a pinch.
Office Hub - Less doing. More done.
With Microsoft® Office Mobile built-in, Windows Phones lets you view, edit, share and sync Office docs. Windows Phone comes with mobile versions of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint on hand for reviewing or editing on the go.
Marketplace Hub - Less want it. More got it.
Marketplace is your one-stop shop for apps, games, music and premium Xbox LIVE games. Available on your phone or PC, Marketplace is quick and convenient to use. Lots of things are free and you can often try before you buy.
Find My Phone - Less lost. More found.
Losing a phone isn't fun, but the free Find My Phone service on Windows Live can lower your stress level. Log into Windows Live from any PC to remotely ring, lock, erase and show your phone's location - or post a Please Return note on its screen. Windows Live also makes it simple to manage pictures, calendar and notes on your phone.
