Yesterday Microsoft unveiled its new smartphone operating system, Windows Phone 7. And Microsoft's partners—Dell, HTC, LG and Samsung—showed off the new devices that will be available for holiday this year.

Operating system aside, these phones look remarkably like the many Android phones that have been hitting the market, which means they’re sleek, highly covetable devices.

There are a few standard features you’ll find on all Windows Phone 7 devices: 1Ghz Snapdragon processor, capacitive touchscreen display, 5MP camera and dedicated buttons for the home screen, search, back, power and camera. However you’ll find plenty of unique features that will help you decide which model is best for you. Here’s the current lineup.
