By Christmas, the smart phone market will get even more crowded.

Microsoft has just announced a major upgrade to its mobile operating system - 7.

There were plenty of rumors it would be nothing more then 6.6, an upgrade from its current offering.

Microsoft is promising so much more: a Windows-based system rebuilt from the ground up with Zune, Xbox Live, Bing - all with a "live tile" interface.

Microsoft now has less than 10 percent of the smart phone market, down from a 25 percent before the iPhone, Android, etc. etc.

Now, Microsoft wants back in the game.

Will you take a good look at these new phones? Can Microsoft come back in the mobile space?
