Microsoft is preparing to lower the curtains on their new Backstage Insider site that highlights exclusive user information on their Windows Phone platform.

To the watchful eye, as is mine, I notice that they don’t specifically say Windows Phone 7 (the 7 is left off – I’ll leave the window open for your analysis and conjecture).

Regardless, those looking to stay “in the know” as it relates to the Microsoft mobile platform and get free downloads, helpful tips and tricks, deals and contests, access to popular apps and insight on new Windows phone hardware – head over to the new site now and sign up for the Insider.
