I've had all three... You will really love WP platform, I know I did. Instead of being the best at ONE thing, it is very good at MANY things.
WP for me was the ALL IN ONE package, and I have not enjoyed a mobile OS as much since WebOS.

Go Microsoft. Phonearena please give more news regarding Nokia and windowsphone, because they deserve much more attention.
As for Steve Ballmer :

Companies have to stop thinking they can use Apple's model and succeed. This can be seen in Palm trying to follow Apple's business model in manufacturing phones and the OS while not lending it to other manufacturers. Google did it differently and because of it, there are more Android phones out there than iOS devices. Plus, any time Apple comes up with a new gadget, every other company comes up with something like it. Just because Apple has success with something doesn't mean that every company will.
Right now, I think Microsoft needs to get their new products in front of as many eyes as possible. Don't restrict your announcements to your own events because you run the risk of not having a large audience.
Think Different...than Apple.

Yeah they said they were going the "Apple Route", this proves it.

I actually think this is a bit of a mistake. Microsoft can easily stand on it's own, but why? This is a good show with a ton of coverage. Why give it up? It can't be a huge money investment.

I agree. In my line of work we actually won the award for most innovative product a year or two ago and just by saying that I have closed a few sales.

equipped pair of iron gauntlets are cursed with perpetual motion spell... remix, even after vanquishing his foe, now discovers he is unable to stop swinging...
sorry, had to throw in the D&D reference just for fun...

Notice... the iFans cannot stand it when Google or Android OEM's act like Apple, but when Microsoft and WP7 OEM's do... that is apparently totally cool and fine. Who's picking winners and losers now? Hipocrisy, I say!
