I watched the demo. Didn't like a single thing about it. Looks like they are trying to cater too hard to the social networking junkies out there. I guess they outnumber us now.

Hate he UI. Expect to make the jump to Android next.

I hope one of the manufacturers (preferably Asus or Sony Ericsson) come up with a physical numeric keypad. Like the Asus P750 format: Numeric keypad with T9. For one-hand operation.

Nevermind the qwerty keypad. It's usability is just the same as software keypad. Two-hands operation. So that's covered.

Windows Mobile is old and buggy. But what kept me locked on to it is it's variety of choices. Some people like touchscreen-everything. Some likes qwerty. Some likes numeric keypad. And WinMo got all of it covered.

I hope Windows Phone 7 carries on this tradition.

 

I never gave iPhone the slightest thought because of it's purely touchscreen-everything concept.

i had kind of lost hope with winmo 6.5 being kind of a let down. i ordered my frist droid yesterday, thanks to letstalk.com, they are actually giving me 80 bucks and sprint lets us trade in every year so some good win 7 phones should be out by the time im ready to switch....pretty sweet it is.

Wow, all I have to say is "Want, want, want!!!" I was an iPod Touch devoted fan for years, until I got the Zune HD, and I was converted since. The new Windows 7 phone has the exact same interface as the Zune HD, and I'm really looking forward to have it as a phone. And the design is really simplistic and clean. I hate it when phone manufactures try too hard when designing the exterior...take the Motorola Droid for instance....it ends up looking ugly.

did anyone else catch the typo "spring" instead of "sprint"?

From everything I've seen it looks like a smooth, well-thought out approach to a phone UI.  So unlike anything I expect from Mirosoft.  Although lately, they've been doing quite well (see Zune, Windows 7).  It will be interesting to see this late this year and what kind of phones it will appear on.  I think I found my next phone, or rather, my next phone UI.

Sucks I have to wait.

It's nice to see MS getting a decent foot forward in the smartphone market. The OS looks pretty slick from what I've seen.
