    Windows Mobile has always been crappy to me. Give me Blackberry or Android any day.

    I presume you guys have seen Windows Phone 7 in action?

    Just love the look of the interface, but I do wonder if it's too little too late.

    I've been a Windows Mobile user for years now.. and i love it. I'm curious as hell about 7.

    Plus there's official XBL integration with 7. ("OMG iPhone yadda yadda!!!1" Yea, that's why i said 'Official.')

    Just sayin'. [​IMG]

    Well, I've been WM user for years too but I'm pretty disappointed with WP7.
    They deleted everything I liked: Desktop-likeness, multitasking, ability to install homebrew, and replaceable shell :

    Exactly, and from what I've seen of it, it isn't polished enough for me to convince me.

    Meh, I have to admit, I really like the Interface. But that's it.

    I still like Android more, and hey, you don't know how Gingerbreads Interface will look like, right? Maybe it will kick Windows Phone 7 A** [​IMG].
