In pictures: Windows Phone 7 features and apps

Just what will the new mobile OS offer?

Windows Phone 7 is unlike any iteration of Windows Mobile we've seen before. From the stylish Zune interface to Xbox Live integration to brand-new third-party apps, Windows Phone 7 deserves a closer look.

Crackdown 2: Project Sunburst

If you're an Xbox 360 addict, you'll find a lot of familiar titles coming to Windows Phone 7. Crackdown 2 is a tower-defence game that smartly integrates Bing Maps: It uses real locations as the gaming world, so you can defend real landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge - or even your own house.

Music and Video Hub

The Music and Video Hub - or the Zune part of Windows Phone 7 - is exactly what it says on the tin. It lets you navigate though your music, videos and podcasts, as well as to listen to FM radio (subject to phone specifications) or to visit the Marketplace for more media.
