Microsoft Demos Netflix, Twitter Apps

Are you starting to get the idea that third party applications are a major part of Microsoft’s strategy for Windows Phone 7?

Microsoft has released a video on their Channel9 site that gives brief demonstrations of Netflix and Twitter applications as well as offerings from Flixter, OpenTable, and Travelocity. Netflix we saw fairly early at the Mix Conference, an official Twitter app is new (though we have seen a Twitter client from Seesmic) and the other tools are new as well.

Head on over to Channel9 for the video (direct link). Individual videos after the break.

  • My mouth has started watering the more I see on WP7! I cna't wait to be introduced to the devices though. That will be the key element for me.
  • There're on the path to create a WP7 landslide.
    A few more killer apps like these and it in the bag!
    Well, MS, I didn't think you could pull it off.
    I was wrong. I'm impressed.
    Keep it up and 2011 will paint a different mobile picture.
