Windows Phone 7 has won the People’s Choice Award at the 2011 International Design Excellence Awards® (IDEA). Windows Phone 7 won in the Interactive Product Experiences category of the Design Segments. Windows Phone is also one of the winners in the IDSA Best In Show 2011 winners.

The Windows Phone team deserve this and it proves that Microsoft have designed a truly innovative product. If you want to know more about the award, then I have quoted some information below.
