October 11, 2010, By Shawn Wagnon

It was one busy and exciting day for everyone who was attached with the Windows Phone 7 Live Event from NYC and a very rewarding day for all those who have been waiting for the OS to actually come out and bring with it loads of new models. It is safe to say that no one was left disappointed once Steve Ballmer was done with his presentation. Here is a round up of what all happened and some important highlights…

All the Windows Phone 7 devices have touchscreens of different sizes, but with 800 x 480 resolution, giving them uniformity.
