I've been struggling with the mouthful that is Windows Phone 7 Series, and I've mostly been calling it 7 series. But it definitely needs a nickname. What do you think it should be called? I'll update the first post nightly with your contributions naming the first person to post a name as the contributor, and once the nominating dies down, I'll put up a poll.

Prime_Directive called it WinPho, which I think is a great name.

Others:
WiPh (the 'old ball and chain)
7 (plain and simple)
WinMo (because you just don't care what it's real name is)

Nominations:
Micro-phone -- cchr
M7 -- Wolveryne42
WinPhone -- gogol
Mo7 -- freakzone
WinMo -- Noonski
WM7 -- norcal colby
WinMO(S) -- madmax85812
WinPhoS -- madmax85812
WP7s -- madmax85812
WinFaux -- Wilhelm
iClone -- Wilhelm
Zeven -- solidkundi
ZuneMobile -- solidkundi
zMobile -- solidkundi
zPhone -- solidkundi
WinMo Touch -- solidkundi
Zune Phone -- burnblue
Mo' Win -- burnblue
WiPS -- kabakara
7phone -- sadoway
sevfon
WPS -- warnold007
wPhone -- Sina
WinFu -- rev3nant
WinFo -- rev3nant
WP7 -- Livven
Uwm -- Semseddin
ZONE -- madmax85812
Wipsen -- Isaygarcia
Wivenphone -- Isaygarcia
xPhone7 -- Isaygarcia
MOS7p -- Isaygarcia
zFono -- Isaygarcia
wFono -- Isaygarcia
winfon7 -- Isaygarcia
widev7p -- Isaygarcia
winpss -- Isaygarcia
7sepo -- Isaygarcia
Pink -- FolaB
Zinc -- FolaB
DP7 (DAMN PHONE 7) -- Apical
WiPho -- adp9626
7-Mobile -- Ace42



The following names and those like them won't qualify for the poll for lack of differentiation from desktop windows. Names that are super long won't be in the nomination list, because this is for shortened names.
W7 -- swordfish2009
se7en or seVen -- DotheTP2
WOS7 -- madmax85812
WO(S) -- madmax85812
WinO(S) -- madmax85812

WinPhone (pronounced as winfon)

Windows Phone ...

Or I usually mention it as WM7, "WinMo 7" ... People will understand it, for sure.

It is "still" Windows Mobile :)

W7 is already the Short for Windows 7.

I like the idea of going against Microsoft campaign to add phone to the name.

So i like to stick to WinMo 6.1, 6.5, 7 etc.

Zeven

zMobile
