Try Out Windows Phone On Your iPhone Or Android Right Now

Have you been curious about Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango)? Maybe you want to try it out without standing around in some store? Microsoft just made it easy to do exactly that on your iOS or Android phone. No installations required.

It’s super simple. All you have to do is go to http://aka.ms/wpdemo in your iOS or Android browser. You’ll be directed to an interactive HTML5 page that gives you a very detailed introduction to the look and feel of Windows Phone 7.5. I just took it for a little spin on an Android phone and it works really well. Will this lure any iOS/Android users to the Windows side? We shall see, but either way, check it out for yourself. Ironically, the demo doesn’t work in Windows Phone’s own browser. I guess it doesn’t really have to, but funny none the less. [WMPoweruser via Gregg LeBlanc]
