Default Windows Phone 7 Series

Anyone waiting for this phone? More and more I read about it, I'm holding off from upgrading to iPhone 4 for this. You have to admit the interface is slick and looks millions better than iOS4. My opinion of course.

Dell Lightning: the ultimate Windows Phone 7 device leaks out

And I'm actually very excited about this. It's a big deal for me plus it supports achievements lol.

Yea, I want a smartphone but I am trying to decide between waiting for the Windows 7 phone or a nice new Android phone. I'll probably wait.

I'm a HUGE fan of the Zune interface. I love the Zune software on the PC, too.

However, a lack of multitasking and system wide copy/paste is unacceptable. They've finally got "the phone is not a PC", but they've gone TOO FAR over IMO.

Did you guys hear that the whole "Kin" phone deal got the cut? MS took the Kin team and threw them into the Win7 Phone team.

Ya, I almost wholly blame Verizon. They made it a requirement for the Kin phones to have a data plan even though they are not smart phones at all. Lame. Lasted 6 weeks on the market. EPIC FAIL.

^This, except I already bought my Android phone. The Samsung Galaxy S is really amazing(except for a few caveats).

I have over a year to wait and see if I am even going with a smart phone. I just don't like the idea of that extra cost each month for data. If I need to get online I will hit a hot spot somewhere.

My emails are not that important that they have to be answered right away, and if my customers need me they can make a phone call. What phones were intended for.

I don't think I will ever embrace the mobile market the way it is now, I feel like its such a rip off and huge waste of money.

I don't like the interface to be honest. I know as much about phones, everything I know you could write on a stamp and mail.

How so? It helps you keep connected with everything and everyone while keeping you entertained. A good smartphone is probably the best gadget investment one can make right now.
