Very Happy

More choices the better!!! Plus I'm so sick of android on everything. We need choices not iOS on the iPhone or Android on "Everything Else."

PS I can't wait for Nokia and windows to get rolling.

You've still got WM7, which is making a very good case for mobile platform quality. Too bad it's Microsoft and their track record for just about everything is borderline abysmal.

I love WebOS, but unless it's a major manufacturer (and likely NOT Samsung) , it's going to end up like the old PalmOS.

I think you mean Windows Phone 7 and while the quality may be there, the UI is hideous and boring. Even iOS looks more interesting.

I am so infuriated with Nokia for going with Microsoft. I wish they would have bought Palm instead and used webOS. The Europeans would have adapted to it quickly and soon after Nokia could have made splash onto the US market.

Android is improving. Ice Cream...

I can't see myself using a Windows 7 device as I am too attached to Android, however I disagree that it's hideous. The live tiles and the sAMOLED screens on the new devices are beautiful. The colors are also entirely customizable. I think WP7 does exactly what it intends to do- simplify the experience of using a smartphone, and it does it well.

The 7.5 Mango update adds a lot of cool features, and the platform can't be touched in terms of the functionality it has BUILT in. (search options, social networking integration, Xbox Live, etc.)

The one reason I'll likely never use a WP7 as my personal device is the lack of app support. Maybe if that changes they could be a real contender for serious users.
