By Christmas, the smart phone market will get even more crowded.
Microsoft's Robbie Bach demonstrates a new phone with the company's new operating system.
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?
