Based on the features of Window phone 7, the new phone operating system is to set a new era in smartphones. The new platform is organized into eight sections:

1. People (your contacts);

2. Search; WP7 has a dedicated search button to help people find what they need, whether in contacts, in Marketplace, in e-mail or on the Web. From the Start screen, the Search button delivers Bing for mobile, delivering Web results, local information, maps, directions and more.
