Top 10 Windows Phone 7 business features

Windows Phone 7 isn’t just for consumers. We take a look at the top 10 business features in Microsoft's latest mobile operating system.

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past nine months, you'll know that Windows Phone 7 is Microsoft's revamped smartphone operating system and it looks to have reinvented Microsoft's presence in the mobile market, with a stunning tile-based UI.

Although Windows Phone 7 was originally designed with a high-end consumer focus, it has evolved into a fully rounded smartphone OS, with a load of business features thrown in for good measure.

We look at the top 10 reasons Windows Phone 7 is an excellent business tool, whether you're looking for apps, something for email, or a way to edit and share documents o the go.

Applications

A smartphone wouldn't be a smartphone without access to applications and Microsoft's revamped Windows Marketplace offers just that.

Although it's not yet clear how many applications will be available from launch, it is thought that there will be more than the iPad had at its launch, which was around 350.

Official launch apps include Twitter, IMDB, eBay and for that down time, a whole load of games tied in with Xbox Live.

Internet Explorer Mobile

Internet Explorer Mobile is an optimised version of the desktop browser for Windows Phone 7. You can open up to six tabs in the browser and switch between them quickly and easily.

At the top of the browser window, there's and address bar that also allows you to perform searches using Bing and if a phone number or address is highlighted anywhere on the page, you can click on it to dial the number, or find the address in Maps.

With multi touch, you can pinch to zoom and trace your finger around the page to scroll.
