Hmm I wonder i will the Nokia/Windows 7 OS cheap smart phone be sold in the good Old USA. I frankly hoped Nokia would have upgraded their T-mobile 710 to have a front facing Camera so it would be Skipe capable. There is a need for such a cheaper Windows phone 7 in the USA. I am not sure Americans would buy the Tango class Windows 7 series smart phone because they want a fuller richer smart phone experience like window 7. 5 mango gives them.. the tango class smart phones I hope will not be as bad as cheap Android phones have been reported to be because this could hurt Microsoft's bid to be a biggger player in the smart phones world

Yeah, it would be nice if Microsoft brought a cheaper option to the US market, especially for the prepaid market. Android has a real strong hold on the prepaid market and while there are some pretty good mid-range phones it seems to me that the low-range phones are the ones that sell the most. I'd like to have the option of choosing a WP or Android phone on prepaid.

remember that wp doesn't have skype yet, just tango.

OEMs are throwing Android phones out left and right coming MWC. Most of them appear to be "hero" devices. WP, so far nothing spectacular. So what's the trouble? I assume we're all gonna have to wait till 4th quarter for our hero phones because of "Apollo".

This might actually work out for Nokia but i think Nokia took the wrong move. Nokia should have gone for ANDROID.

When the do release a windows phone (when not if) and Boost Mobile picks one up, I would so ditch T-Mobile
