Will Windows Phone 7 Win?

If you have followed Microsoft for any length of time, you know it is  willing to fail before it ultimately succeeds. Usually it takes three tries, but in the case of mobile operating systems, Microsoft is on its seventh turn at bat. Now, Windows Phone 7 has been released to phone makers -- meaning it will be in stores soon.

Microsoft is taking this market seriously, and my guess is its mobile OS will be pretty darn good. The only problem is the iPhone, Android and Blackberry are pretty darn great. This is gonna be a fun battle.
