Microsoft listens to the critics

When Microsoft announced its new mobile OS in February, it was called Windows Phone 7 Series. Most everyone raved about the new OS, but its name got a lot of flak.

Many complained that it was an overly wordy and complex name that didn't exactly roll off the tongue. Others joked that BMW might take offense over the 7 Series moniker which is used for its flagship luxury sedan.

Microsoft has listened and the OS will now be known as Windows Phone 7 from here on out. The news was relayed via a brief Twitter message by the Windows Phone team.

Now if only Microsoft could do something about true multitasking and copy/paste...

I don't care if they will change it the way they wanted. Anyway, as long as the product is great then I'm fine with it.
