Default New Sprint Phone on 24th

I am really hoping its the T7 Pro. I like this android platform, but i want to go back to Windows. I guess its the 6 long year relationship with that platform and my work requirement of working with the dotnet compact framework.

But if they do another snafu like the Kyocera echo, I am going to leave sprint and go to AT&T.

Why? Windows Phone 7 is horrible... it runs smooth but no apps, no copy and paste and no flash. Hell they don't even support silverlight and thats MS!!

I guess you aren't following WP7 much. Early next month it's getting copy and paste, performance improvement on games and apps via update. Sometime in the summer, it's getting IE9 with HTML5, Silverlight, and other features. Adobe said Flash is underway for WP7. Also for Apps, it's growing faster everyday and keep it in mind, iPhone or Android experienced same thing when they first launched.

Yeah but it should have launched with all that. How can you compete from the bottom up when the competition is so far ahead. Microsoft had time to see the markets trend and put in all those features prior to launch... Windows Phone 7 was rushed and the consumer is paying for it.

I hope the merger with Nokia helps because I don't see them gaining ground for a LONG time.

You are going from the best phone out there to that Windows phone? That's crazy.
