Windows Phone wins (another) design award

The Interactive Design Association (IxDA) just announced the winners of its first annual Interaction Award—and we’re thrilled that Windows Phone 7.5 has picked one up. Here’s the official award citation.

My buddy Steve Clayton over on the always-fascinating Next at Microsoft blog also reported the IxDA news—and included a YouTube video worth checking out. As Steve notes, it’s not the first big design prize our mobile operating system has taken home.

Windows Phone is off to a good start this year. Nokia’s gorgeous Lumia 900 captured the coveted Best of CES 2012 award for smartphones last month. There’s also been a flurry of great reviews and press lately.

And just think—it’s only February.
