Microsoft today shared more details about its Windows Phone 7 platform. Along with the platform launch, Microsoft will also debut a new Windows Phone Live web site that users can take advantage of to do a number of things. First, the new site allows users to publish photos, sync contacts and sync OneNote files. It will also act as a security tool, letting users log in, locate a lost phone on a map, ring the phone, lock it, or erase it completely. Windows Phone 7 will support push notifications, and can deliver real-time updates to applications with banner-style alerts. Other new features mentioned by Microsoft include wireless syncing with Zune software via Wi-Fi to transfer media, and better integration with Windows Live, Gmail, and Exchange email systems. Last, Windows Phone 7 handsets will be able to access the Zune Marketplace and XBox Live content directly from their handsets.

xbox live content

Can anyone give more detail about what this means?
I'm dreaming of three things in particular-

1 my xbox live avatar as a live wallpaper on my phone.

2 xbla games designed to play on console and/or mobile. Spend Microsoft points through the phone, download a game or demo, and then have the same game on my xbox when I get home, with progress, achievements, and save games continuity between machines.

3 retail box games with add on content for mobile devices; gain experience, money, items through mini games on the phone that applies when I log into the full game on the console. Example: pub games and woodchopping for fable 2.

Bonus: stream music and videos stored my xbox hard drive. Mobile netflix!
#3 kinda reminds me of Dreamcast's VMU. I actually wouldn't mind having functionality like that on a phone, although I dunno if that'd be enough to get me away from Android.
