Around a millennia ago Microsoft announced that Xbox Live was going to be expanding and going er anywhereâ€¦ the idea at the time was that we would be able to plays games, get achievements and message people from a plethora of mobile and fixed devices.
And now that dream is finally coming true, the new Windows 7 Mobile Phone from Microsoft offers Xbox Live which will allow you to play Xbox Live Games, view the spotlight channel (does anyone do this?) and view a friends gamercard via your phone.
I would expect messaging and voice mails to work as well but I doubt the chat functionality will be functional from the get go though it does appear that online gaming of some sort will be working.
The phone itself does a whole lot more and if released locally and for a reasonable price I would expect it could do very well indeed.
It’s not an iPhone, but it may be easier to get this one approved by your boss for work related reasons.
