    That's a good looking phone...Hardware and Software wise. I would buy a WP7 over an Android phone in a heartbeat.

    Nice. WP7 is pretty smooth. I just upgraded from a droid to a WP7 and I'm very impressed with the os.

    Interesting, but I like the ios ecosystems: iPhone, iPad, apple tv 2, macbook pro, macbook air!!! Till there is a high quality window 8 hardware, then maybe!

    Thanks for the link. I don't know if I'll do that or not. After my droid I'm a bit reluctant to do any hacks to a phone. I rooted my droid but that created other issues over the long run.

    If you have multiple apple products staying with the iphone is probably best, but I came from android so I was open to trying something different. I didn't know for sure if I would like a windows phone, but I read lots of reviews and watched plenty of videos, and so far I'm very pleased. Some things it won't do yet and the amount of apps aren't there yet, but I've found an app to do everything I need the phone to do so far and the mango update will bring it on par with android and iphone.

    Why are they firing guns at their factory? The mobile-phone business is apparently rougher than I thought.

    As for the phone itself, it seems very generic-looking to me.

    Apple is going to have to "step it up" as competition is going to take it's toll if they do not. WIN7 phones are going to be awesome and will compete with Apple and Android.

    The first Windows phones had to be an embarrassment to MS and it looks like they going to introduce what they should have in the beginning.

    Just another square, angular, dull Windows phone. As they say, if you don't have an iPhone...

    I tend to also care about what a device will do for you and not just as a "fashion statement"!:p

    The problem for microsoft was the lack of desirable hardware. But that's now changing with a new higher end batch of handsets with Windows Phone 7 Mango. But out of all the ones on display, it was the phone that Steve pulled out of his pocket that made all the news. It was very Samsung Galaxy S2esque. Looking back now, it may very will be their version of the Samsung Galaxy S Hercules that is coming to TMobile. If this happens, I will be opening an account with Wind Mobile and getting one of these bad boys. If you look at the 2 phones, they look to be exactly the same phone.
