Let's see now. Skydrive? I already have Dropbox on Android. Multitasking? Yep, got that, too. IE9? Android has a gazillion different browsers to choose from. It also has more apps, more phones to choose from, Exchange connectivity, and an exploding user base.

So can someone tell me why WP7 is even worth looking at?

I'll admit that microsoft is playing catch-up here. However, I think WP7 is much more intuitive than android. If you're already married to android, then you probably aren't interested in wp7 yet. On the other hand, I'm coming from a iOS device and think I like wp7 for its ease of use and pre-installed apps.

I think the IE9 demo bodes well for the future of mobile browsing, and having that pre-installed will be a nice plus.

Granted, I'm only about 8 months into my 2yr contract with my iphone, so I won't be jumping ship tomorrow. However, it will be an interesting choice when I'm ready to upgrade. Isn't that what this is really about ... consumer choice?
