post #41 of 46
I would put iOS ahead of WP7, I don't understand why people hate it.

One aspect I feel has been lost in the whole smartphone revolution is the fact that, currently, the main point of the device is still a phone. For example, if I'd like to make a call on my iPhone I have to turn it on, slide the bar, click the phone app, then click my contacts or the keypad or another link there. So rather than opening my Razr and dialing, I have 4 more steps. It feels more like a Palm Pilot with a phone built in rather than a phone with App capability. Android feels the same way.

Personally, Windows Phone 7 feels like a better average between a phone and a smart device. Granted, the amount of steps to call are similar but that was only an example to illustrate the smartphone mindset. Just like the commercials mention, I feel like I can get in, do what I want, and get back out of Windows Phone 7 better than the other platforms. If you are buying the phone to play games and use Apps, then by all means iOS. If you just want to tinker to your heart's desire, Android. But if you want to have a phone than can keep you connected with a slick interface that still feels like a phone (/email/messaging) then I like Windows Phone 7.

My wife has an iPod Touch (gets her all the iOS apps, games, etc.) AND her Windows Phone 7 and she couldn't be happier.

In this market, if you don't have developers interested in the platform, you're pretty much done.

It's a shame, really. It's a great OS.
No, all analysts are expecting it to be number two in just a few years now that Nokia(who sells more phones than anyone else) has signed on to use winmo 7.

Best post here in this thread.

I personally got bored of Android since I was a day 1 G1 user and just got bored with each new update that didn't do much for me. WP7 is fresh, new and works best for me.

Been loving my HD7 since launch.

Didn't like how bland and blatantly uncustomizeable it was.
