Summary

After years of delays, Microsoft has finally stepped up to the plate and put forth a completely new smartphone operating system: Windows Phone 7. The Samsung Focus is one of the first devices to run on the platform, and it's a real charmer. It has good looks, great capabilities, and a brand spanking new OS.

The Focus has what it takes to battle the best smartphones on the market when it comes to specs. It is 10mm thick, features an auto-focus 5 megapixel camera with flash, and offers everything up on a 4-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen display. This part of the equation we know Samsung can handle - we've seen it all before.

But we all know that good specs alone don't win the battle, and luckily for Samsung, Windows Phone 7 seems to have the nuts to battle with the big boys on the usability and fun aspects of smartphone use, too. App support, however, is a sticking point.

Check out the videos of the Samsung Focus and its new Windows Phone 7 operating system below.
