They have Step by Step Directions in the Bing Maps section, which actually lets you Zoom in and see the Area which I thought was IMPRESSIVE.

Regarding Maps I'd love to see an Update for Bing Maps that shows where you are as you move when searching for Directions, unless they do then someone please clue me in. I know when Microsoft brought out Danger they made an update that did this suprised its not on here made it a lifesaver for me when I moved here as I'm fairly new to the area still.
A search feature for your Music Now Playing list. I REALLY would LOVE to see this feature hate scrolling through a song patiently to miss and move right over it I'm really wanting a Music Search button.
Ringtones would be a nice feature
Copy and Paste(But thats already in the works)
I'm not having Battery problems but if they can give me a Boost I'll surely take it.
Definitely more LandScape options or make everything do-able in LandScape would simply be AWESOME as my accessibility goes downhill when I'm in Portrait mode after I leave the HomePage. IE when on the Internet you have to be in Portrait mode to type anything into the WebBrowser. But maybe its better that way.

Besides that I actually have been thinking about this for an Hour. I'm not sure what else they could do on the Software side to really improve anything. Everything else comes down to a couple Apps I would like to see IE BarcodeScanner and a Follow me GPS. Not really anything else I can think of honestly

Not according to factory specs. It's supposed to last 7 hours of talk time, which is the same battery-life specs for the LG Quantum. Well, considering I always keep my wi-fi on and I sit and play with it all day, I can't give you an accurate amount of battery life. With how much I use it, I don't think it'd make it two full days without a charge.

Here's my pic, along with my handy calculator and my accounting textbook(EWW!): http://img101.imageshack.us/i/dscn5356m.jpg/

Every phone shop i went in all said the same thing :

they dont have any of the phones (not even dummies)
they dont know when they will get them
they (most) dont think that it will sell well
the "launch" was poor and very low key with only 1 of the shops i went to knowing when the launch was

and the ones that played with them preferred Android, only some of the shops got models that the staff could use - werent allowed to display them or anything which sucked

what do you people think about the interface? from what i have seen it looks horrible but wanting to have a play with it before fully deciding if i am going with Android or WinPhone7

I played with it in an ATT store and I thought it was great. Frankly I'm not a huge fan of the iPhones and I think Android lacks major polish. I mean you could not outrun the windows phone 7 but I can outrun Android any day of the week. Even the Droid X. If you look at the Android next to IOS or Windows Phone 7 it doesn't even compare at all. It's amateur hour frankly. The animations are rough, the icons don't scroll smoothly and frankly it's a horrible.

Then HTC incredible is the only one that is even somewhat good. The Droid 2 and Droid X are the worse phones I have ever used, yet they sell so well. I'm more inclined to say Android users are sheep more than Apple IOS users now. At least IOS is decent.

No problem to push the buttons at all, I just need to put my finger in the hole which is fine with me as I hate bumping a button by mistake. I'm quite happy with the way it turned out. I am looking for another case though, just to have a functional back up. I'm trying to really take good care of this phone.

Maybe a day or two before the phone was released. I had went onto Ebay and brought a Holster(Case), Protective HardCover, and Screen Protector for my HD7 couldn't be happier. Except I had to make a hole for my headphones.
Much better than the price of T-Mobile charging $25 for each Accessories over the $23 I paid.
Just throwing it out there.

Quite a rash thing to say frankly because android is alot more fragmented then ios or wm7 because of custom frontends and every phone that runs android has different hardware so you get a different android expience with each phone you try.

You really should give it a try, I think you'd change your opinion. I've really enjoyed the interface; to be honest, I've been blown away with how awesome this phone is. It's super easy to use, VERY customizable, and effective. Even my wife loves it lol..
There's conflicting reports; some say it's selling well, some say it's doing poorly. I don't know who to believe anymore. I know they've sold well where my wife and I got our phones, so it's hard to say.
