Windows Phone 7 along with Nokia can be the next big thing in smartphone industry and challenge the domination of Android and iOS. The amazing GUI and the feature of Live Tiles surely has attracted some lime light.

This is surely a very smart marketing strategy and with WP7 having a great interface it can prove to be great success. Also we expect Google and Apple following the suit and releasing their sites where users can get a demo of latest Android or iOS operating systems.
The demo provided provides limited functionalities as usual and is meant to provide just a feel of Windows Phone 7. Itworks very smoothly. The demo provides the options of going to different Windows screens and navigate through their phone, email, text and calendar tiles.
The demo is currently available for only mobile device browsers and not for PC or Mac users. Although some users have reported about the demo working perfectly on the Google Chrome running on Windows.
With Microsoft, Google and Apple going all out in the battle of smartphone OS things are going to be very in interesting in the future.
