NEW YORK ( -- Microsoft Corp. unveiled the newest version of its MSN network, which the Redmond, Wash.-based company is calling MSN 7.

Among the revamped product's features are a new, faster home page design, and tools designed to work in conjunction with Microsoft Windows XP, the company's new operating system that is more closely integrated with the Web than older Windows versions.

MSN 7 also includes upgrades in services such as MSN Messenger, MSN Search and MSN Explorer.

In addition, the company said it is rolling out its MSN Broadband service nationwide.

Microsoft said that by the end of the first quarter of next year, the MSN Broadband service will be available in more than 90% of DSL-capable U.S. households, and that it will offer incentives to consumers to sign up with the main MSN Broadband Internet Access service.
