More Hands-On With Windows Phone 7

Scott Hanselman is a Microsoft employee who got his hands on a WP7 phone, and did the above walkthrought, which provides us with not only a reminder of just how sharp the new OS will be, but also serves to demonstrate some features we haven’t seen before.

From this video, we see for the first time: screen locking with PIN, IE mobile tabs, quick profile switching, and downloading email attachments. This last one is kind of interesting — when the attachments arrive they’re represented by paperclips, which you tap to save. The paperclips then change into mini-icons, and you can open it with its appropriate app.
