When first Pocket-PC's was released at about 98, i have had iPaq 9300 from Compaq, i thought i have it all in it, but not really, it crashed so much, lot of promises but nothing to achieve, all games and apps was demo, and to bay, they cost more than PC version, to much frustration with it, and i was happy i sold it out, now nothing can make my mind up to bay a win-mobile, even if i get for free...lol.
I burnt my finger, and i em not willing to burn it again with devices like that.

Totally true: Windows 7 is lighter, more stable, and it gives you more overall performance. 64 bits is tuned up and it's reliable.
Let's hope Windows Phone 7 to follow it's big brother and very welcome Windows 7.

I think it'll crash just like all winmo phones...Windows 7 as a computer OS is very unstable...putting it on a phone...I wont buy one.

Whoa up!

It's all very well getting excited about MS bringing out their own phone, however the OS is nothing without decent hardware.

You need decent hardware to get decent call quality & after all the prime consideration is about calls not whether it can take quality photos or do HD video!
