Windows Phone 7 has RTM’d! Microsoft today announced that it had released its new Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system to hardware manufacturing partners.
“Today is the day that the Windows Phone team has been driving towards, and we’re very excited to say that we’ve reached the biggest milestone for our internal team – the release to manufacturing (RTM) of Windows Phone 7! While the final integration of Windows Phone 7 with our partners’ hardware, software, and networks is underway, the work of our internal engineering team is largely complete.
Windows Phone 7 is the most thoroughly tested mobile platform Microsoft has ever released. We had nearly ten thousand devices running automated tests daily, over a half million hours of active self-hosting use, over three and a half million hours of stress test passes, and eight and a half million hours of fully automated test passes. We’ve had thousands of independent software vendors and early adopters testing our software and giving us great feedback. We are ready,” said Terry Myerson.
Windows Phone 7 has already generated a lot of consumer interest and it will be very soon now that users will be able to lay their hands on a WP7 mobile device.
Does anyone here plan to buy a WP7 Phone as soon as it is released?
