Windows Phone 7 spotted in the wild

Microsoft's latest mobile operating system got another public outing today and initial impressions seem to be positive.

Pocket Lint says it got a sneaky peak at the OS which was installed on a Microsoft Exec's prototype LG Panther handset and reports that everything was "working smoothly", although the demo apparently skipped over a few core features including XBox Live integration.

The tech site also waxed lyrical about the software's seamless Facebook integration, one-click access to map locations and Zune media player functions.

On a related note, a Microsoft spokesman confirmed that the Zune Store will be coming to the UK in time for the as-yet unconfirmed launch date.
