We’re still catching our breath from the whirlwind of news that swept across the smartphone plains yesterday in the form of Windows Phone 7 launch details, and we imagine that some of you are a little overwhelmed as well.

We hope that you enjoyed our WP7 articles as much as we enjoyed bringing them to you, and we’d like to thank everyone for tuning in to Pocketnow for such an exciting event.
