After much speculation and rumour it looks like Microsoft might be getting back in the mobile game (catching up that is) with Phone 7.

I was always a big fan of windows mobile and have owned many of them right from the very first version back at my days with Retriever.  Peter one of the programers now works for the big M in on this project.  With this and Android (Googles phone operating system) the market is really starting to heat up.  Might be time for me to look at alternatives to the iPhone later this year.
