Cnet interview with Steve Ballmer on Windows Phone 7; reveals little but still interesting

In the hubbub of Monday's Open House, there was this interesting video intereview with Steve Ballmer conducted by Ina Fried of Cnet.

Though we don't get any real juicy scoops, he does briefly mention how the technology form the Xbox Kinect (motion sensors, etc.) could make its way into mobile devices someday. We've seen some early hints of this from Microsoft themselves (Flashback machine: "Sidesight"), so it's not too surprising that the tech from Kinect and even Surface may be incorporated once it can be minaturized.

Check out the full video after the break, it's worth it as Ina has some pretty sharp questions for Steve.
