Windows Phone 7 is the successor of the Windows Mobile 6.5 mobile operating system developed by Microsoft. Its interface contains tiles: a list of icons containing information, updates, apps, and people; and an application list: an alphabetical list of all the applications.
Users are provided with self-configuring options for Windows Live, Outlook, Yahoo! Mail, and Gmail. They can also get options for manual setup of POP and IMAP accounts. Windows Phone 7 comes with storage service called SkyDrive and several cloud-based services. Users can access Xbox Live for games, Zune for music, and the Marketplace for apps.
Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) is an update that includes previously released security, performance, and stability updates for Windows 7. It also includes new improvements to features and services in Windows 7 such as improved reliability when connecting to HDMI audio devices, printing using the XPS Viewer, and restoring previous folders in Windows Explorer after restarting.
Windows Phone 7 was launched in October 2010.
