HTC WP7 phone leaks again, HP to stay out of the WP7 game - read the full textHTC are very happy with the market results of their touch-driven candybars with 3.7-inch screens so far. So much so that they are going to stick with it for their first Windows Phone 7-powered device too. The phone in question made yet another public appearance today and was even kind enough to...

How very strange that they would choose CDMA as a launch vehicle. Being used by such a tiny minority of people it hardly seems worthwhile.
Launch it on GSM and almost the entire world can enjoy this immeciately.

Complete disaster you mean!
If you had to use office (word, excel) very day, you know that you have to hit more keys in officde2007 than in 2003 to get the same result, because a lot of action has been removed from the right moouse click and the grouping of commands,functions are based on theory, not on practice use.
Hope Office2010 will be more flexible to progamm the right mouse functions

why 3.7 and not 4.3? HTC, please consider the 4.3" screens for your GSM phones in win7 and android.

I can't wait for WP7. It gives us another choice for mobiles. It will probably be great for work-related applications... hopefully fun, too. I don't know why people are so hot for Android, either. I have concerns about Google's lack of concern for privacy issues.

The UI looks impressive as in windows media center. Nice job microsoft you're always doing a full and complete revamping as what u did in office 2007 from office 2003, vista from xp and now to win phone 7.

H.P failed to port windows 7 on H.P Slate which was announced at CEE this year, so H.P bought Web O.S

You will surely see H.P slate running web o.s, and since it is a mobile o.s, why not but it on our other handheld devices, said H.P

What you should think is, when H.P failed to port windows 7 on slate, which is quiet obvious since it requires heavy hardware, why didn't h.p go for windows mobile 7 on slate?! Wouldn't that be great?

Nokia had made a big blunder with Symbian when I bought the N95, everything was laggy, using too much resources and plenty of friends I know who still use it sometimes get system errors.

The new Apple 4.0 OS for iPhone 3GS is better than Nokia, but I find some apps are running slower (like Trapster) even when I close all apps down and leave it only running.

If its as good as MS have said here then I'm getting it!

The OS is stupid?
Please wait when you try it,and then say if it is stupid or not.
It's not even released and you are saying that it is stupid.

I don't know. In comparison with Android, iOS4 and even Bada, Windows Phone7 looks boring and outdated... Those single-color tiles and the cut-up text doesn't do anything for me! It looks more like a skin rather than an OS...
