KUALA LUMPUR: A day after Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer announced it in the United States, Microsoft Malaysia yesterday launched the company’s latest smartphone operating system, Windows Phone 7.

While the new operating system could be the most significant for Microsoft since losing the lead in the smartphone market to RIM’s BlackBerry, Apple’s iOS devices and Google’s Android operating system, the local launch was marred by the unavailability of certain key features that would have made Windows Phone 7 devices in this country more competitive.
