Microsoft unleashes new Windows Phone website

Microsoft has unveiled Windows Phone 8 today at its San Francisco event, but the company hasn't stopped at simply announcing the next version of its mobile platform as the official Windows Phone website has had a design refresh. 

Checking the website (US version) will now bring visitors to a larger welcome index page which displays more features that Windows Phone boasts. Unfortunately the added content on the homepage doesn't appear to be rolled out across the board as we're not seeing it here in the UK.

The first part of the new homepage is a personalised touch, which is what the presentation today focused on. Microsoft's Jeo Belfiore even brought his children onto the stage to help present the platform. So, meet Kaycee.

New WP Site

After checking out who Kaycee is we're next taken to four features of Windows Phone: Live Tiles, Kid's Corner, Photos + SkyDrive, and Rooms. These features were all touched on today in the presentation.

But that's not all, as Microsoft has all the latest hardware (excluding the Samsung ATIV S) presently listed on the website.
