I love Microsoft's Xbox 360 & Xbox Live! If they can make a beast phone that can integrate all the best features from Xbox Live, it might strongly make me look into a Windows phone. I played with my brothers HTC Trophy & I like what I was seeing. The Windows Phone 7 OS is intuitive, fresh & very responsive. I am telling you if I can chat on Xbox Live with my friends all over the world & even voice chat with them that would seriously make me think twice about Android. I am waiting for like a quad-core Windows Phone that can play the Xbox Live games in HD like in Xbox Live. Imagine playing Limbo, Dishwasher, Shadow Complex, the HD remake of Beyond Good & Evil, the HD remake of Resident Evil 4, & the HD remake of the original Halo. Those games are way better than anything on Apple's AppStore. Plus Windows has a lot of apps in its store, all the best apps on both the AppStore & the Android Market are coming to Windows Phone 7. The phone won’t hinder me in the business side of things, I can do everything on my brother’s HTC Trophy. So productivity won’t be an issue with me. I am just waiting for that bad-a$s Windows Phone with all those feature I want, & maybe I will give Windows Phone a try. Windows has come a long way from those old Windows phones before Windows Phone 7!

I too am waiting for that bad @ss WP7 phone and then I will buy, but I am definitely already sold on WP7. All the reasons you gave for considering WP7 are icing on the cake for me, but boy will it taste good!

I have to agree on waiting for nice Verizon 4G LTE WP7 with all the bells and whistles and a 4.3 inch screen

I'm wondering if the HTC Eternity's 4.7" screen will be too big for me?

I can't beleive that I am 8 months past my upgrade eligibility and still holding out for a dual core WP7 device... Stay strong brother!

guess you have to wait a lot longer WP7 software don't support dual core. Mango just supported font facing camera. So the new hardware up grade will have that and not dual core

I think I have decided to grab W7 now. Thia OS offers all those things I am excited by and want. If that master device comes out next year from Nokia or HTC, guess I just spend a little extra money. Microsoft has really learned their lessons from Windows Mobile, haven't they?

My upgrade is next month, but I don't want the Arrive. Think I'm going to hold out on something that has at least a 4" screen without a a keyboard. LOVE WP7 though!!!! Some badass phones need to hit CDMA! Stop letting GSM have all of the fun!!!

WP7 has tons of potential.. Let's hope they live up to it!

Thats what I want! I would even skip over a Nokia or HTC made Windows Phone for that! I love the operating system, and the Trophy is pretty legit as well. However a Windows flavored GSII would be too sick! My upgrade is up in a month though... So I'll probably go with a Trophy and use my brothers upgrade for a later iteration of WP (either way all WP will move on to Mango!)
