I have to admit, while I never got used to writing “Windows Phone 7 Series, I’ve grown kind of fond of the acronym “WP7S.” But I’m still glad to see that Microsoft realized that the name was too long, confusing, and difficult to say.

According to a message on Twitter from the Windows Phone team, Microsoft is dropping the “Series” from the name of the company’s upcoming mobile operating system. In other words, we can just start calling it Windows Phone 7 (or WP7).

Considering how much positive reaction Microsoft has been garnering for the refreshed operating system, the cumbersome name was kind of the black sheep in the WP7s ecosystem. I don’t think I’m the only one who’ll be glad to see the “Series” retired.
