I can't help but feel that the devices running Windows Phone 7 look crooked when they are displaying their start screens with that black bar on the right side. They end up looking side heavy, but I'm still looking forward to what Microsoft will bring to the table.

No cut and paste, no multi-tasking of third-party apps, 2+ years late to the party.

Will not compete.

WinMo7 will be about as successful as the Zune was against the iPod.

Wasn't too impressed with Windows Mobile 6.x. And their Windows Phone 7 came out too late, behind Android. Good luck MS.

Unfortunately, I think you're right.... With both Apple and Google in the fray, I think Microsoft are going to get shut out.

Considering Windows mobiles have had cut and paste since 2002 I can't believe Win Mob 7 doesn't have it, in fact the leaked HTC vid show's either cut/ paste or copy/ paste on the 3D notepad app

Let's just wait and see shall we?
Android was late to the party as well, with Nokia, RIM and even Apple being the prime rib of the smartphone world.
2 years later Android has impressed by delivering.
It would be foolhardy to count Microsoft out, they may be slow but when they get moving they are a juggernaut.

5 Years ago, I would have agreed with you.

But after Vista, Kin, Bing, Zune, Courier, and their slowness replacing IE6, I don't think Microsoft understand anything outside of their OS / Office core products.

I would be happy to be proved wrong as good competition will ultimately benefit all of us..

if WP7 delivers the X-Live integration promised i can see it garnishing alot of followers from console gamers. i personally am hoping for the integration to come to zunes as i'd like to keep with palm phones, but if hp doesn't release anythign soon and i get tired of the pre it'll be between a droid or wp7 if its better for me wp7 will win if its a droid then so be it ... i welcome wp7 though and hope it does well

EXACTLY! Micro$oft; the "me too" company, putting their poor spin on everyone else's ideas. But you PC monkeys will continue your blind support, so who knows?

You really are clueless.

You Apple monkeys spend twice as much on your hardware and software, and get back half as much as the rest of us in spec.

treyking is one of those guys that thinks the iphone was the first touch screen smart phone and mp3 player. And apple invented the wheel!!! they did really!
Apple was actully the me to company in both those cases. they just put a very nice spin UI on them. and kudo's to them for that. the others had the potential to do it on there hardware for ages and weren't brave enough to go there. that doesn't mean apple invented the smart phone though.
