Microsoft Reveals Its 'Me Too' Smartphone

Sick of not having a horse in the smart phone race, Microsoft has conjured up its own iDroidBerry, the Windows Phone 7.

Revealed at a press conferenceMonday, the $200 phone is coming in five flavors in the United States, split between AT&T and T-Mobile. The AT&T phones will be out Nov. 8, with the T-Mobile units following later that month.

The phones boast a tile interface that I’m having a hard time determining is different than what any other phone offers, and the phones will be all up in Microsoft’s pet applications and services, including Xbox Live, Microsoft Office Mobile, Zune, Windows Live and Bing.

Whatever the results, it’s doubtful Microsoft will botch this thing worse than it did the Kin.
