The Windows Phone 7 OS is taking smartphones to the next level of functionality. Smartphones built on this Windows operating system are able to do more than ever before. While Apple has enjoyed a strong position within the smartphone market thanks to the iPhone, Microsoft is using its Windows Phone 7 to provide Apple with serious competition.
