ANURAG GROUP OF INSTITUTIONS
I would like to express my gratitude to all the people behind the screen who helped me to
transform an idea into a real application.
I would like to express my heart-felt gratitude to my parents without whom I would not have
been privileged to achieve and fulfill my dreams. I am grateful to our principal, Mr. M.
MUTHA REDDY who most ably run the institution and has had the major hand in enabling me
to do my technical seminar.
I profoundly thank Prof. A. PRASHANTH RAO, Head of the Department of Information
Technology, who has been an excellent guide and also a great source of inspiration to my work.
The satisfaction and euphoria that accompany the successful completion of the task would be
great but incomplete without the mention of the people who made it possible with their constant
guidance and encouragement crowns all the efforts with success. In this context, I would like
thank all the other staff members, both teaching and non-teaching, who have extended their
timely help and eased my task.

With the launch of Windows Phone 7 (WP7), Microsoft hopes to regain the lost ground from the
limited success of Windows Phone 6.x. With the complete rewrite of the platform from the
ground up and a sleek new user interface, WP7 holds promise as a potential game changer for
Microsoft in the smart phone arena. What needs to be seen is how successfully Microsoft
leverages its ecosystem; particularly Windows Marketplace, Zune Marketplace, Microsoft Office
suite and Xbox Live to promote the new phone platform. This viewpoint touches upon the
essential features, user interface, value proposition for enterprises, adoption potential, application
development and a quick comparison with competing platforms. Windows Phone 7 Mango, the
upcoming release is considered as the basis of this discussion.
Windows Phone 7 was the first and previous release of the Windows Phone mobile
client operating system, released worldwide on October 21, 2010, and in the United
States on November 8, 2010. An update to the OS codenamed Mango (also referred to as
Windows Phone 7.5) was released in May 2011. In January 2013, Windows Phone 7.8
was released. It added a few features back ported from Windows Phone 8, such as a more
customizable start screen. It was succeeded by Windows Phone 8, which was released on
October 29, 2012.
