It will be interesting to see how Windows Phone 7 fares against Android and iOS. Microsoft has a great deal at stake here – they can’t afford another failure like Kin:

O2 has gone live with a Windows Phone 7 intro page, ahead of the big worldwide launch.

And whilst the webpage doesn’t specifically name any WP7 handsets (unlike LG’s somewhat naughty post) it does give us a nice insight as to what to expect from the platform.

The official blurb states:

“Windows Phone 7 is designed to bring together all the things you care about most. Windows Phone 7 organizes content in information hubs, which you can access quicker and easier with a single touch.”

And, the key features are listed as:

– Quickly see everything you care about by personalizing your Start screen with live tiles.    

– Gaming on-the-go with Xbox LIVE, meaning you can compete from virtually anywhere.    

– Play movies, TV shows and music quickly and easily. Stream all of your favourite songs and videos through Zune.    

– The only phone with Microsoft Office Mobile built in. Send, receive and edit documents, and upload to Sharepoint remotely while you’re away from your desk.    

– Manage both work and personal email and calendars with ease.    

– Get a smooth web experience on-the-go with Internet Explorer.    

– Losing your phone just got harder. Track it online with Find My Phone.    

– Keep email, calendar and contacts all in sync from phone to PC to the web.    

– Stream online photos to your phone and share online automatically. With one touch upload, with a single click you can upload a photo onto Facebook and other social networking sites.

So what Window Phone 7 devices do we expect to see landing on O2?

All is expected to be revealed later on today, but if Pocket-lint was to take a punt then we’d guess that the network could be home to the HD7 (aka the Schubert).
