[citation][nom]soldier37[/nom]With only snippet previews of the phones you have to search for online, the screens are too small anyway. Also I dont want anything Crapbox(360) on any phone of mine. Give me a 4.5 inch screen droid x,evo,iphone 4 killer please![/citation]

I'm surprised there arn't any 4.3 inch phones leaked yet, like you are. I think 3.7 to 4 inches like the nexus, incredible and galaxy S is about the perfect size though, so I don't care too much. 3.5 feels too cramped, while 4.3 feels too large to me for daily use.

I hope this phone will be a success to compete with iPhone and Android. We only have hope for WP7 and WebOS to success so that we have more choice in the future.

So far, WP7 display looks good and new, and not so apps centric. The lack of basic functionality like Copy/Paste/SD Card Support/Multitasking might hold me for a while, but these features will come in the future, so I am willing to wait.

There seems to be a October 11 Launch date, and a November 8 Sales date, when you can actually buy one of these devices, in the U.S.A.
I am waiting for a none phone version of one of these devices. When will those be launching ?

Will be waiting till June cause of ATT problems out here. I am hoping Microsoft has made another gaming worthy platform to match the Xbox, Xbox 360, and the best gaming experience ever, Windows.

News to me. I thought that T-Mobile was also going to launch a non-CDMA Win Phone 7 in November. Don't think ATT has a lock.

Not interested at all unless the phones are outrageously cheap (read: free). This OS will be 18 months outdated the instant it is released. We all chastised Apple for a lack of basic features but they were delivered with 3.0 way back in January... of 2009. Now they are on 4.0 and Android is on 2.2.

Why would anyone purchase one of these phones given the other options from Apple and Android?

Wait, who am I kidding, there are plenty of MS trolls on this site alone who will buy one of these phones.

Even if there's no first party tethering, doesn't necessarily mean there won't be tethering at some point. :)

Who would purchase an iPhone when it didn't even have basic features like MMS? Tons of people. Same deal with Android, initial models were weak, the OS had problems and lacked tons of features, poor app availability, etc.

There will always be early adopters, and as they improve things (as Apple and Android did) they will be able to draw in more people. I probably wouldn't have bought an Android-based phone a year ago. But they're pretty solid now. So if you aren't condemning iPhone and Android, is it fair to condemn WP7 for the same teething issues?

I say bring on more competition - new BB OS, new WebOS devices, and WP7.
