"Windows Phone 7 is extremely intuitive and user-friendly, allowing people to use their smartphones more efficiently and bring together the things they care about most," said Daniel Liberman, senior vice president of mobility for RadioShack.
"By introducing three devices equipped with Windows Phone 7, The Shack continues to expand our assortment, providing customers with a leading-edge selection of devices, carriers and world-class mobile operating systems. In a complex wireless landscape, we can help simplify their search for the right smartphone to match their lifestyle," said Scott Young, executive vice president and chief merchandising officer for RadioShack.
Windows Phone 7 operating system offers three unique features: a "Glance & Go Experience" with all the information you need on the "Start" screen, allowing you to quickly find what you are looking for; a simple and functional design to do more in fewer steps; and "hubs" that assemble related items in one place for fast and easy access. The Xbox Live hub, for instance, offers an on-the-go gaming experience much like your Xbox 360 at home. Overall, Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 OS has made it possible to complete tasks in less time, with fewer steps, without sacrificing fabulous style or superior service in the handset or carrier relationship.
