Fashion Week is in full swing in New York City this week, and today, we’re excited to announce five designer themes created just for Windows phones. The themes, which include custom palettes and wallpapers, were designed by some of today’s hottest designers: Diane von Furstenberg, Vera Wang, Isaac Mizrahi, Rock & Republic and Ron Arad.
We feel these designer themes are great examples of how Windows phones are moving into the consumer space and our Windows phone offerings on October 6 will continue this expansion of the brand.
Smartphones are just as much a fashion statement as the clothes you wear and are quickly becoming a must-have accessory. The designer themes are just one more way that Windows phones help folks customize their device to fit their style. No other mobile platform offers this level of self-expression.
We’re excited to team up with these designers to let people customize their mobile device to fit their personality and express their style. It’s time to cast aside your drab default wallpaper and devices theme and make this year about style, color and fun!
These Windows phone exclusive designer themes will be available for free on all Windows phones running Windows Mobile 6.5 on October 6 and can be downloaded for free from Windows Marketplace for Mobile.
I can't figure the procedure to follow to download it, neither on regular marketplace the post link goes to, neither on www.microsoft.com/.../catalog
It is already published?
Hey it appears that the mobile future may become more open which is great news, it looks like the FCC is going to strengthen Net Neutrality laws... and
"Julius Genachowski, head of the FCC, is expected to propose in a speech Monday, for the first time, that rules against blocking or slowing Web traffic would apply to wireless-phone companies"
Great news, as a Comcast customer I was just waiting for the day when they would start throttling downloads from Hulu and other sites (while raising my cable rates), I still can't get a reliable download from Amazon videos from them. If these proposed new FCC rules are enacted and force the cable and phone companies to improve their services for a change.
Hopefully the FCC can continue to be proactive, and put out more regulations that would protect consumers, improve competition and help drive innovation forward.
Gotta love the features of the new phones these days, I just wish Government and the FCC would act to make the phone companies more responsible leading to better phones and prices.
2 year phone contracts should be banned, 1 year should be the max.
Crippling phone software such as what Verizon usually does limiting access to basic phone features such as WiFi, Bluetooth or GPS should not be allowed.
Phones should not be sold through the service carrier e.g. AT&T, Verizon, Sprint people should be forced to shop for a phone as it leads to better prices and better phones.
This would also lead to phones that could be activated on any network which would help competition.
Yeah the wireless phone industry in the US is a real monopoly, kinda sad that were so far behind the rest of the world. When phone companies up the prices for txt messaging when their costs have gone down and infact are miniscule you really have to question the logic of the US market.
The phone companies are almost as bad as the cable companies.
Having solved all the problems related to Windows Mobile, it's nice to see Microsoft use their resources to have some fun.
