[citation][nom]thekurrgan[/nom]I think this may be too little too late, just as the Blackberry Torch. Its going to be tough playing catchup. The only upshot, is that Microsoft has a huge developer base, and as such will rapidly gain the applications that are available on Android / iPhone already. That and they do have deep pockets to get their product out there, so we'll see if the consumers are in line.. Also, MS has never shown any partiality to any carrier, therefore its unlikely they'll have a exclusivity agreement and create a valdeez situation like Apple did with AT&T.[/citation]
Very true. The company I work is a M$ partner and has several contracts with Microsoft to develop for Phone 7. The tech is nice, but we'll see how it goes with execution. I hope that M$ doesn't screw this up. The phone has a lot of potential and the platform is VERY easy to develop for, being XNA and Silverlight.
