Windows 7 UI Picked Apart on Video

They guys over at Engadget have their hands on a Samsung reference device running Windows Phone 7 and put together a very nice preview video. Microsoft is playing catch up with Windows Phone 7 and it’ll be very interesting to see if consumers actually end up buying Microsoft-powered phones when they’re released laterĀ this year.

Microsoft has clearly put in a ton of effort to make the UI unique and usable. The touch interface looks great and I can’t wait to try out one of these things myself. However, at this point I wouldn’t consider replacing my iPhone 4 with a Windows Phone 7 device. At this point, an Android device of some kind is far above a Windows 7 Phone on my want list.
