Re: Sad but true
WP7's UI is pretty nice and certainly different. It's a helluva gamble but I wouldn't count it out.
Android sat and rotted for its first year on the market, and despite high device sales, it's a pretty tepid ecosystem and it's viewed as an also-ran by most developers. Don't believe me? Look how many Android apps are garbage compared to their iOS equivalents. (Twitter, Pandora, Rdio, Foursquare, Yelp, Skype, among others...) What's going to make or break a platform is developer support, and quite frankly WP7 is the only one challenging iOS in terms of quality now that WebOS has up and died.
Yes, there are 150,000 apps in the Android market, but the number of apps that aren't total garbage are pretty close to WP7's. Maybe less. Cross platform apps such as Rdio tend to go iOS->WP7->Android . (Their Android client is damn near unusable.)
Only an iSheep would defend M$ just to justify their hatred of Android. Unbelievable. webOS I could understand but WP7??? That's low even for you Blue.
