post #71 of 907
I came from a SideKick Lx 2009 and a MyTouch and I'm upset I didn't have a phone like this earlier.
@Chucker I wish I could chime in on your question, because it was either my HD7 or the Vibrant but after just playing with the HD7 I knew which phone to pick, best thing I can tell you in a Major unbiased statement is try the phone out or look at Reviews.

I went to the at&t store yesterday and played with the all three WP7 handsets for roughly 20 mins. I like the UI a lot, it didn't really "WOW" me though. I currently have a 2 year old iPhone 3G that I'm tired of. Obviously I was a bit underwhelmed by the app marketplace offerings. My most used App on my iPhone is the chase bank app, nothing was offered yet on the Windows marketplace. Obviously this will change over time.

My favorite has to be the quantum simply because of the physical keyboard, it's a little thick but I like it. The Focus has a huge screen! It looks awesome and I was surprised how light it was. The HTC was nice but the Quantum and the Focus offer something different that each appeal to me in different ways.

I'm indifferent to gaming options, I barely play games on my iPhone. I use news and media site apps the most.

I want to jump on this now, but I'm just trying to be cautious. I need the bank app as I don't use cash anymore and I need to check my account regularly. It's hard to make the jump. The iPhone was my first smart phone and it wowed the crap out of me when I got it. I remember bringing it home and playing with it for the next 2 and a half to 3 hours just checking everything out. I'm not a fan of apple, the iPhone is just so bland to me now, and the fact that flash is blocked bothers me a lot(I really want to make a change! Android isn't polished enough for me). I also like the web browser better on the WP7 and the fact that its app market will be much more open. I'm still very excited about this phone and its wireless abilities that work with PC's and possibly with a new LG TV.

Definitely leaning towards the quantum as I want the QWERTY keyboard and long battery life.

Have you looked at the PageOnce Personal Finance? I have this APP on my phone and its free haven't actually set it up yet so you'll have to give me a couple of days before I can give you any kind of review for it.
http://www.pageonce.com/ (Website for it even works for all phone devices) But this works for a friend of mine since we have TIC which I'm sure won't make a Bank app.
Edit: This app is amazing has my Bank already +1 I'll report back tomorrow and tell you how it is.
Update: Got the APP finally working took about 5 Minutes to sync without me having to do anything, I think anyone who has a phone should check this out.
They have a Pan for your Bank accounts, Credit cards, Investments, I even have an Alert for my bills I have to pay seems nice so far.

Definitely eases my second thoughts on making the jump. Thanks! I'm sure that within a few months it will take off. Competition in this market will only make all of these OS's that much better. I'm pretty tired of iOS now, looking for something new.

It's definately new. Still has that new "out of the box" smell. With the current state of WP7 you can see what they are trying to do be the same but different at the same time. As the updates begin to mature the device and apps come out, it will be exciting to how things turn out in the long run.

Yeah it works for your iOS so essentially you could pick it up and see how you like it if you haven't already and Also with Zune you can search the Marketplace by going to Marketplace and APP, incase you were interested into looking at the entire Marketplace. I hope you find a phone whether it be WP7 or Android(Even though I'm an official Wp7 Fanboy). But I'll try and tell you if I find anything better EVEN THOUGH I'm sure Wells Fargo(Wachovia) and BoA will probably make Apps soon, and then others might follow.

One good thing I do like about the phones is that all of them are virtually the same Components. So all Updates will work for all phones, I like the Iphone type deal they have going on One update for everyone that fixes everything makes me feel a bit more eased about MS doing there usual kill off when something better comes to light.

Yeah NG, this APP is lovely it basically syncs your entire Bank account to your phone, considering its a one touch button to your BA I'm SHOCKED that its free, I haven't purchased a single app that wasn't free but I'd literally pay for this.
You have any Nice apps people may not know about, or any kind of app your loving right now NG?(We should update and make a UserList would love to have a I'm a WP7 in my Rig leading us to this thread, and add a couple of useful apps to some people who have the phone on the front page).

I personally would love a Barcode Scanner APP(Unless somehow I can get that LG ScanSearch app),especially with Christmas coming it'd be a money maker.
