Default Re: Windows Phone 7

I'm excited about this phone. I love the Metro UI and XBOX Live is what made me decide to upgrade to instead of iPhone 4. For Copy/paste, and multitasking, I don't really care about those features to be honest. I rarely use it on my iPhone and for multitasking, it just kills your battery life. I never felt the need to have multi apps open at once. Eventually Microsoft will rollout the free update with copy/paste and probably multitasking if the demand on it is high.

Rumor or not, HTC is working on uber Windows Phone 7 sporting a 4.5-inch AMOLED touchscreen (with a resolution of 1280x800 pixels), a dual core 1.5GHz ARM-based processor, 1GB RAM, 32GB storage, Wi-Fi, 4G, a 8-megapixel camera with two LED flashes, HDMI port and HD recording capabilities, a 1800mAh battery, all in a 10mm thick enclosure. Seems overkill but here's the link:

Last Friday when I was heading home from class, I noticed something happening at Microsoft campus (I live few miles away)- it appears they were celebrating Windows Phone 7 going RTM. I saw Darth Vader there! It appears they did Thriller dance and a funeral for Blackberry and iPhone. I guess they're having so much fun. Funny, a lot of twitters/reporters calling it immature and clueless... I mean, seriously? They're just having fun and clearly they're happy that WP7 has finally hit RTM. I honestly don't think WP7 will top iPhone or even Android right away but that doesn't mean they can't celebrate. They deserve it.
