So far, my only problem with W7 is a serious lack of CDMA devices, as I am fairly sure we will dump AT&T and go with Verizon or Sprint. I really, really want more than one choice on those carriers. So far, the vast majority of these Mango rumors are for GSM devices. What is a dude to do?

Hey snowgator if you can hold out for the Nokia WP7 with Mango you will be pleasantly surprised. I am starting to get excited about WP7. If the Nokia comes to Sprint I am definitely going to check it out. Windows & Nokia want to make a big splash. I see them going to all the major carriers. Nokia & Windows will bounce back. Just have some patience. I know it's hard!

I just want to give you som words of wisdom...
I too was very exited about WP7 when it came out, so i bought the Omnia 7.
Hardware wise it was a fantastic phone. Software wise i thought it was really good too... the first 3 weeks.
You see, at first i thought WP7 looked really cool and had an exiting UI. But the problem was, that the UI, especially the live tiles, and the lack of features made the phone very boring after 3 weeks of use. There was nothing i could do with it exept, well do the basic things. Thats why i got rid of my Omnia 7 (in fact i threw it in the garbage bin, since im not bound by any contract here in Sweden) and bought the Samsung Wave. With the Wave i got lots of more feautures than i did on my WP7. Also there is alot of more possibilites to personalise bada.
WP7, yes it looks exiting at first look, then it becomes boring and you wish youd bought another phone.

LMAO what exactly are these "features"... I know WP7 is playing catch up, but you people are making it seem like the gap is huge, when in fact it is not.
Please be specific, what features? Aside from spotty video chatting and multitasking, there are not that many "features" that WP7 lacks (again there may be few more, but these are the specific features that I miss as I play with both WP7 and Android)
FYI Android is getting it's butt kicked as far as my preference goes. WP7 has really nailed a great user experience (and Ive been using for more than a month)
I'm feeling the same way. When will the LTE Verizon models come? I'm excited about WP7 and just want some new hardware.

Yeah, I have no idea what the deal is with this either. There are 4 carriers in the US, 2 CDMA, 2 GSM. They would make more money if they expanded it a little. Pretty frustrating. I'm giving it until this Fall. Sprint has the low prices, and unlimited data that is extremely useful with WP7. At least the GSII is coming (which will be my choice if Mango doesn't provide a new device).
Samsung GT-i8350 is blessed with its Bluetooth certification; refresh of the Omnia 7
