Give Windows Phone 7 a try on your PC

Whether you’re itching to give the new interface a try or want to understand why anyone cares, you can give the new Windows Phone 7 a virtual run-through by following a how-to guide from Gizmodo.

The necessary components are easy enough to get: A PC running Windows, the Windows Phone 7 Development Kit (free), and a custom Windows Phone 7 ROM (link provided in the how-to). Not sure how much touch function is possible on this emulation, but I’d hope it can offer a more savory experience on a multi-touch screen PC (something Apple should note for the future). If you have any of that experience to share, please let us know.
