Windows Phone 7 receives "operating system of the year" award
There's been some beautiful headlines lately with the Windows Phone OS taking awards, winning polls, and more. Adding to the trophy cabinet is "Operating System of the Year", judged at the 2011 Know Your Mobile Awards. The Metro interface was the main focus, which differentiates the OS from the likes of both iOS and Android. Xbox Live, Bing, Windows Live and Office integration were also highlights.
Runners up were Samsung's Bada and Blackberry 7. A selection of comments from judges on Microsoft's winning OS:

From the story:
"Inspired by Metro signage, the Windows Phone User interface provides users with an easily customisable start screen, which is focused on putting people first.
Stepping away from the sea of isolated uninformative icons used by other smartphone OS', Windows Phone integrates the user experience to deliver smarter and easier communications, apps and Internet experiences.
Our judges said:
‘It has the most potential, with a unique interface and a rapidly growing apps selection. It has a great looking UI and doesn't look like ANDROID or iOS.'
‘Innovative interface, with more success to come.'"
Kudos and Congrats to the Microsoft design team.
