For those of you who remember Trapster (see site) on Windows Mobile (see our review from 2010), you'll be excited to know that an official Windows Phone 7 version is right around the corner. If you haven't heard of Trapster yet, well, it's basically a social-network for us daily road warriors, a way to communicate the important stuff to other drivers, via you smartphone:

- Audio Player Controls
- Real Time Traffic

We're excited about this major title coming to Windows Phone 7 as it's just another feather in the hat for our fledgling OS, plus we who doesn't want to drive safer (and not get a speeding ticket?).
