Video: Windows Phone 7 Build 6176 Walkthrough

In this video we take you on a tour of what’s new in the latest build of Windows Phone 7 for the emulator. There are more changes than we thought. Chief among them is the new versions of the Office programs, which do a great job at handling annotations and letting you manage multiple documents. Also new is that we finally get to use the phone application, which has a dialer that “floats” above applications. Overall, this latest build of Windows Phone is much more complete feeling than the previous 6077 build, but we’re still wishing we could syncronize with any email or social networking account to see how email and contacts work. You can get the latest emulator through XDA.
