At the Mobile World Congress, being held at the moment in Barcelona, Microsoft unveiled integration for their forthcoming smart phone, Windows Phone 7, that will see users able to access Xbox Live accounts as well as Zune and Bing. You'll also have full 'live' Avatar accessibility, with the phone displaying live tiles that change and update in real-time.
"With Xbox Live if you want to play with your friends, we make that super easy, even though they're on a PC and you're on a phone," said VP of Microsoft Mobile Communications, Andrew Lees. "These things all work in an integrated way across screens, so the phone supports your digital life much more completely."
The phone was officially unveiled at the event and will clearly directly compete with Apple's iPhone, and having such integration as Xbox Live and Zune is a step in the right direction thanks to a massive install-base. It was also revealed Microsoft would be launching the phone in Q4 2010, though no specific mention of Australia made its way out of the address.

they mean other than accessing the accounts via the phone's web browser right..

yeah, full integration, so I assume if you have an account the application will just be ready to roll - fill in your deets and then all your stored games can be played on the phone? It's what it sounds like to me

Yeah arcade games maybe, along with xbox live's GUI with all its bells and whistles, but i can't see it being anything more than that.

not really fussed with Microsoft pushing xbox live as some sort subscription based internet 2.0, but otherwise looking forward to their new effort at a mobile OS.

this blew my mind a bit... shouldn't one of those examples have been an Xbox?
