By: Hillel Fuld

Windows Phone 7, the latest Microsoft attempt at a mobile platform was released today. I wrote down some of my thoughts prior to the launch here and my initial impressions of the operating system here.

Whether Windows Phone 7 will become a success or not is yet to be seen but with 9 devices, some with extremely impressive specs, the Windows Phone 7 launch managed to impressive even the most skeptical geeks among us.

Putting aside all the geek talk, anyone can appreciate a good commercial and Microsoft nailed it with their new Windows Phone ad. Take a look and let me know what you think in the comments. That is, what you think of the ad and/or the platform.

Update: Some people on Twitter are claiming Microsoft stole the concept from the below video that has been circulating the Web for some time now. What do you think?
