Microsoft renames Windows Phone 7 Series

Bookmark and Share

Windows Phone 7 Series has had a name change, we’re reliably informed via Microsoft’s windowsphone Twitter account.

Although it’s not so much a name change, as dropping the final word, which was pretty meaningless anyway.

The company tweeted: “Tis the season for Series finales. We’ve got one too – dropping the ‘Series’ and keeping the ‘Windows Phone 7.’ Done.”

So yes, the operating system is now just Windows Phone 7, which just makes more sense, and isn’t such a mouthful.

In fact, the company could go further and make it WinPhone 7. Or just WiPh 7? Although the latter might be asking for lots of bad smell jokes (what’s that nasty whiff?).
