Microsoft needs to break this cycle...

Updates are coming out way too late, especially for such a promising system with a lot of blaring lacks. Microsoft needs to get off their butts if they want to try and make any kind of an impact against the other major operating systems.

Memory

This phone offers 512MB of ROM and about the same for RAM.

What's interesting about the 16GB of available memory is that only 8GB's are built into the phone. The other 8GB's are in a removable microSD card.

The problem here is that the phone views the microSD card as built-in memory. What that means for you is the "expandable" memory is only to be removed if you want to format the card and lose everything. The only way to transfer media files from phone to computer is with a data cable (the phonescoop review mentions how painful syncing can be, especially with video). It definitely feels like a design flaw, especially when I can get a Samsung Captivate with 16GB and get an expandable memory card with 32GB. Just like the Aria, HTC comes...

I want to try one so so so bad.

It's a good thing I work for T-Mobile... hopefully I'll be able to mess around with these things to no end!

Pretty excited about the new OS!

A little less excited about it not syncing with my soon-to-be new Macbook Air. (which I ordered today!)

Visual Voicemail?

The article mentioned a specific icon for voicemail on the call list, but didn't specify what happens when clicked. Does it direct call your voicemail or pull up a visual voicemail application?

Camera Concerns!

With all the new Windows 7 phones, the camera can be supposedly accessed by just clicking the camera key... no unlock required. I've seen similar functions in flip phones that not only waste the battery, but fill your memory with pocket-pictures.

Data Plans

With this phone constantly updating and AT&T not having unlimited internet, I wonder how they are going to handle this phone. I think it will be better on TMO or Sprint.

I can't take Windows Phone 7 Seriously.....Yet

No multitasking, and no copy and paste? What year is this again? Didn't we already have to go through that kind of crap with the Iphone since 2007? And here it is, the end of 2010, and you do this?

Windows Phone 7 on T-Mobile HD2

Does anyone know if 7 will be available for HD2? I am thinking about putting Android on it, but want to wait to see what 7 brings to the HD2.
Thanks.

HTC 7 Pro = Yuck!!

OK so I have Sprint and want to try a Win 7 Phone, and from reports the HTC 7 Pro goes to Sprint. Not only do I have to wait till sometime next year, but it does not look that appealing to me. Now I'm leaning toward jumping ship to att for the Samsung Focus. Crying or Very sad

The Way I see it

Windows is trying. For that I tip my hat ... problem is I'm not wearing a hat. This entire idea of another market to compete with Android and Apple ... nobody needs it. Maybe it'll be a contender in the future, but considering their choice to not include "cut and paste" (though it will arrive shortly) seems like a red flag at the business they're running.

Before I can totally bash this, however, I will need to play around with the different phones, see if I like them or if I'm going to stick with Android.

Anyways, that's my two cents.

Samsung Focus w/QSD8250??

This appears to be a fantastic device and I would purchase it in a heartbeat, if it weren't for one thing; a QSD8250 Snapdragon processor? WTH? Not that a 1ghz processor is anything to scoff at, but come on, a first gen. Snapdragon that was released in late 2008! This would also mean that the GPU would be the Adreno 200, which if I understand correctly, has only a fraction of be processing power of the SGX535 found in the iPhone 3GS for example. The Galaxy S Captivate running Samsung's Hummingbird has the SGX540 GPU which out performs even the iPhone 4. The fact that Samsung would use a relatively antiquated processor/gpu in a device with so much potential, running such a highly anticipated spanking new OS, is just mind boggling and for me ...

love iphone

Far more phones in the market I would like to choos iPhone, I love my iPhone, I think no one can exceed it, and many are after Apple, design, time...As so many ones have got the iPhones, and totally sucked in it(at least Im sucked in its movies and videos watching on the go with the help of iFunia Video Converter, and Facetime with my friends), the others come into the market one by one.
