The only thing stopping me from purchasing this phone is the fact that I have no details on the zune account. Is it like an android account? Can someone help me out? lol

All you need is a Windows Live account (Hotmail, Xbox, Live etc), after that Zune works pretty much like iTunes and such. If you don't have an account, you can just register a new one :)

This would be amazing on a prepaid network.

Wow at last a person can buy a cheap smart phone that wont be a waste of your good old hard earned money. Microsoft did a great job of designing a smart phone OS that can well run on a low spec device. they should get an award for their great Work and Nokia deserves great credit for designing and making very affordable Windows 7 series smart phones that People can afford to buy. I wonder if it will be sold in the USA. I hope so because this would be a smart phone a parent could afford to buy and give their children or try out a windows smart phones for themselves to see if they like it . If they are sold in the states they will be sold at 25$ or zero $ on a 2 year contract. but hell why do that when you can buy the smart phone for less 300$

Microsoft certainly learned from the whole Kin fiasco. And it helps to have Nokia as a partner. I'm really impressed how the WP experience was translated onto lower end hardware. I'll certainly be considering this since I'm looking at the pre-paid/no-contract market.

Hope it'll be available for T-Mobile and AT&T prepaid plans... too cheap for a contract IMHO, and then I could pick one up on the cheap without a commitment and use it as a backup or app development

in specs area it is written that it runs on Mango. i am pretty pretty sure that this and ZTE Orbit will come with Tango out of box.
