I love my iphone 4 just as I have loved all the other iphones, but because I also have an obsession for new gadgets, I will definitely own a WP7 device (in addition to my iphone) to check it out. As long as Apple keeps putting out quality phones I'll always have one.
My absolute loyalty to only one phone is like saying I'm gonna wear the same pair of underwear for the rest of my life...It just ain't gonna happen!

I do like how Microsoft is trying not to just follow Apple and the app store but making something new. Thats the only thing that will be able to compete. If a droid and blackberry can run the same apps as the iphone, then what really makes one phone better than the other.You don't like the iPad because you don't have one!

I love the ad. It's sad but true. I'm on my phone all the time getting iPhone neck craning over my phone. My friends are just as bad. But I watched the keynote today and I'm starting to look for reasons to not want a WP7 to add to my phone collect. The OS has some very well thought out and put together features. MS is on the right track with their latest OS. A few updates and it will be a solid easy smartphone experience. iOS is still the best put together OS out IMO. Android is just a cluster F*** of abortions from manufactures of phones. But anyways watch the keynote if you have a hour to waste the punch line is *** but once they get into the features there's somethings that apple should adopted.

People oh People. 'Tis was I who predicted that the Spirit Jailbreak would come out. Now people embrace the power of Windows 7 in your hands. Take the phone and PRAISE IT. PRAAAISE IT!

The only reason the wp7 is nice is because they have separate designs like android. iPhone on the otherhand only has one design 2 colors when it comes to the specific model. Did you guys see the new HTC HD 7

I personally can't wait for this platform to go public and stir the competition pot. It's not much comp with just two up-to-date mobile operating systems (Android and iOS) and two other seemingly neglected platforms (RIM and Symbian). Honestly the iPhone OS is getting a little tired IMO and Android is way to under monitored and fragmented with carrier skins and updates. Hopefully WP7 will shine some of that old Microsoft light on the new mobile game.This message was K1NG approved.

More competition = consumers benefit anyway. Imagine if Apple dominated the smartphone market. Pure disaster.

The goal for Microsoft’s latest smartphone is an ambitious one: to deliver a phone that truly integrates the things people really want to do, puts those things right in front of them, and either lets them get finished quickly or immerses them in the experience they were seeking
Also I love displaying text really small so that I can fit more information on my phone screen, I'm not really passionate about people from 100 feet away being able to read and see whatever the heck I'm doing on my phone...
Apple has nice products, for a spicy price even but their worth it, if you want to have a cool phone that does everything you ask it to do in a second, clear and nice display, stilish bodywork and crazy good applications and you're willing to pay Apple the price for it it's ok. If not, maybe you can search for a cheeper alternative (Android, WP7, Nokia) and have almost the same but for less money.
If this competiotion is going to go somewhere nice for the users it's the fact that as much as the vendors develop and grow their smartphones to achieve or overcome iPhones, Apple will keep strugling to offer better iPhones with more functions and maybe build some cheeper variants so that ALL can enjoy this brand.
I really encourage my friends (in Europe) to buy Android and WP7 phones sollely for this purpose, especially if one comes to me mind made about an Android, I won't even try to change his decission.

From my experience with windows mobile (a few years back admittedly) "it's time for a phone to save us from out phones" will mean dropped calls needing a full power down and reboot, by which time I'm doing something else and forget to call back.
I've not kept up with windows mobile for a long time, but once bitten twice shy.

If this is anything like WP6 then it will fail. Five updates to that OS and it was still crashing randomly, right out of the box!!!!! M$, the kings of mediocrity. How can anyone say this is great until it is in the hands of the consumer? I remembered the same hype with OS6 and it ended up dragging windows phone down further. Really when will M$ innovate instead of imitate? I will save my judgement on WP7 until I can see it in my hand!!
