I LOVE the Windows 7 Phone UI!
Having said that, I still prefer the hackability of Android. It's why I chose it over the iPhone (that and an open ecosystem).
As an experiment, I visited a few iPhone blogs to see what their commentors were saying about the news... lol, their fanboyism is so clouded. They say the most ignorant things!
Business users will be thrilled to have the full functioning office device that will also act as a mp3 player and media device (neither the Android or iPhone are a real alternative for heavy business users in terms of function or being supported by major IT departments).
You are right to be wary. There is much bullcrap. Be wary of me too, because I may be wrong. Make up your own mind after you evaluate all the evidence and the logic. - Mark Rippetoe
The more I see demo's of WM7 the more I like it. Hopefully in about 2 years, VZW will be carrying a few versions of each of the best Android and WM7 phones.
Scientists have proven that living actually causes death.
If you don't like the interface you can always install SPB Mobile Shell which is similar to the Android interface , but way better looking and customizable . As for the people saying that WM is not as hackable or customisable as Android , I gues you never owned a WM device , I could do , hack and customise a hundred times more stuff on my WM phone than on my Droid . It seems that many Apple fanboys have become now Droid fanboys trashing everything else .
