Windows Phone 7 Facts: OOBE: Out-Of-Box Experience, Start-up Sequence

This is part 4 of the Windows Phone 7 Facts series. In case you missed it, you can find the previous articles here.
The previous facts were all based on information from XDA user and moderator Da_G. The coming articles however are all interesting facts from the Windows Phone 7 Guides for OEMs.

Microsoft is planning to add a new customization progress to Windows Phone 7.
Internally, they call it OOBE: Out-Of-Box Experience. They will probably advertise it as OOBE too.

Not very surprising, the Windows Live service is required for complete use of WP7.
The following image from a confidential Microsoft document shows us the exact way that WP7 will be customized

This procress will start when you’ve unboxed your Windows Phone 7 Phone and boot it for the first time.
The start-up sequence will not differ from current Windows Mobile versions, the order is the same:

  1. OEM Image (i.e. HTC)
  2. Operator Logo (i.e. AT&T)
  3. Windows Phone 7 Image – this one will only show up once at the very first boot.
