Does it need to be littered with gloss and glowing things?
When you actually get to using the UI, its simplicity becomes beautiful.

Just the fact that it is different makes me want to try it.

Untill then im in no position to critisize it.

I like android but its by no means great enough to the point where i would never switch lol..

Considering smart phone contracts are only one year before you can get a new phone its definitly worth trying Windows phone 7 out.

One area that these phones could possible take off (with a good part of the market) is in the business world.

However it seems they have it geared for social networking more then anyting?!?

Also known as outsourcing...
To be fair, every smart phone manufacturer does this.

i mean, Iphone 4's and HTC EVO's are made in the exact same building in Taiwan.

I've just had a look and I'm feeling no love for it.

I've used the emulator and dev tools so I have seen it in action as the emulator is about 99% the same as the actual UI. I don't find it any simpler than iPhone or Android.

But it's the ugliest. No I don't want anything "littered" with gloss or glowing things. But at least something that won't hurt my eyes. Heck, they could have made it look a little like Windows 7.

I think microsoft knew this was gonna be a hit or a miss so they pry went out on a limb when designing it, willing to take that chance.

It reminds me of the Zune when it came out. Compared to the competition...it was light years behind.

Personally, I'm not terribly interested in having MS software running on my phone as well. I've got enough of them on servers and workstations. I'd rather that somebody else like Google or Apple run the software in my phone.

It make me less annoyed by my HTC Touch Pro2 with WM 6.5 which works fine and is modifiable, root-able, and can even run Android if I so choose, but, can't be upgraded to Windows phone 7 (go figure, guess Microsoft thinks they can force an upgrade with their current offerings) Yea.....Ummmmm.......no.

Wouldn't mind trying one, but not impressed so far with that UI look. I read somewhere no tethering on it & the copy/paste doesn't work? I'll stick with Froyo for now and looking forward to the new Gingerbread release!

I have not been impressed on the whole with windows based phones. My good friend had one, and when I got my android, he switched to that OS, and traded about half his phone's functionality for a better UI.

I'm not sure if this post makes much sense in here but I didn't see anywhere else to put it. I'm looking for a windows phone and I'd like to know if anyone has used them, if they have any recommendations, or know of a well priced plan/package that's offered through a particular carrier.
