GSM Arena links to a nice video demonstrating Windows Phone 7.1 (Mango) in this article. The descriptions are in Russian, but it's pretty easy to follow along anyway. The card interface for multitasking is an obvious WebOS knock-off, but if it works why not "pay homage"?

Every time I see one of these I feel tempted to pick up a WinPhone. Mobicity has a couple of models for under $400 outright now, which for a smartphone is a pretty good deal. But WP7 has a bunch of stuff that doesn't work quite right here, and while I'd like to hope that Microsoft will fix that in the next release, I wouldn't count on it.

(The Samsung Omnia 7 is probably the most tempting of them, very similar to the i9000 Galaxy S, but with WP7. AU$399.)

Plus Nokia will have their first batch out later this year, and I'm really curious to see what they do with it. Their speciality is making nice reliable phones with excellent cameras, keyboards, and radios, so while I'd have loved to see what they might've been able to do with Android, I'm still very interested to see what happens with their WinPhones.
