Windows Phone 7 Xbox LIVE Integration

Microsoft today unveiled Windows Phone 7 Series, a new mobile OS to be available by the end of this year. A feature of the new OS is integration with Xbox LIVE, something we saw hints of late last year. BusinessWeek has a write-up on the new OS, and Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson outlines the Xbox LIVE integration:

Specifically, the Windows Phone 7 Games hub will allow you to:

    • Collect Achievements and build your Gamerscore
    • View Xbox LIVE leaderboards
    • See your Xbox LIVE Avatar
    • Access Spotlight feeds, including the latest tips and tricks, game news, updates and more
    • Add Xbox LIVE friends to your friends list while out on the go
    • Turn-based (asynchronous) multiplayer gaming

They have had 'awesome' changes for one reason - iPhone. If Apple had never gotten into the game, Windows Mobile 6 would have been the last release and anything mobile for Windows would have been a pipe dream...I don't say that to knock you Enahs, just a reality check is all...
