If you played with cooked ROMs (at least on the better devices, sadly Treos are not in that group) there was nothing wrong with WM... actually in many ways a good cooked WM ROM offered a LOT of business uses that you simply can get on any Android ROM (email features, document editing, advanced calendar functions VOICE DIALING... on and on).
That said until Google makes an MP3 player AND has an music app/market in line with what M$ and Apple offer WM 7 phones (least the ones with Zune app/software) offer a real marketing thread to Android. Should one come to VZW I would likely switch, or at least have both devices. More and more people like the idea of having only one device and Zune has a decent market share and it's steadily growing.
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
MS missed out on a huge market share in the mobile phone industry and it's going to take alot more than a pretty OS to bring consumers back. Google has already got a decent stake in the marketshare just by appealing to people who are anti Apple for anything.
Android isn't as open-source as they tout it either. There's alot more you can do with a WinMo SDK kit than you can with ANY Android SDK.
There's really nothing wrong with WinMo. I mean as long as you are a rigid conformist and always have a paper clip around to poke the reset button, they are great.[/QUOTE]
especially after comming from a WinOS Treo
Android certainly has huge positives, but Google needs to get a few basics corrected while they work on their wiz-bangs
Google has a huge opportunity to take over the mobile phone market. they need to start my listening to user's complaints and work to make a business oriented device, or at least make their current offering more business reliable.
