Windows Phone 7...

Anyone interested in it? I'm sick of my Droid, so I'm going with an HTC Surround once it's out (Nov. 8).

Both to be honest.

The Droid is just poor hardware. The headphone jack has broken 4 times in the past year (4 different phones), two of the four have ended up with messed up sliding (the slide out gets weird), and on all four the battery door has gotten warped.

And Android doesn't help. You can have your opinion, but I think Android is a lazy OS. When there's not one native app besides the phone and Gmail in use, there's an issue. No two apps work well together, and as nice as multi-tasking is, it's just too much running. I know about task killers, but I really feel like a phone shouldn't need it.

I'm looking forward to WP7 because it's Zune-centric, clean looking, and all native apps can multi-task, but you only get one 3rd party app running at once. People complain about that, but ****, look at the iPhone. People get by.

And you're lucky if you managed to feel blah from WinMo lol... WP7 looks very user-friendly.

EDIT - whoa, wall of text.
tl;dr: Don't like Android or Motorola, and am looking forward to WP7 because it's not Android, iOS, or WinMo.

HTC Surround AT&T


Quote:
The 7 Surround offers a 3.8-inch WVGA display, a 1GHz Snapdragon chip from yesteryear, 576MB of RAM, 5 megapixel camera with 720p video, and Dolby Mobile and SRS Surround Sound technologies. This unconventional handset will be exclusive with AT&T in the US and Telus in Canada. Pricing in the US will be $199.99 on contract.

HTC HD7 T-Mobile


Quote:
top us if you've heard these specs before: 4.3-inch WVGA (800 x 480) TFT screen, 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8250 system-on-chip, 576MB of RAM, 5 megapixel camera with dual-LED flash, and Microsoft's latest mobile OS on board. Yes, the HTC HD7 is almost a carbon copy of the much-loved HD2, albeit with a major upgrade to Windows Phone 7 software and an appreciated bump to 720/24p video recording. Beyond those enhancements, American buyers will be greeted with preinstalled Netflix, Slacker, and T-Mobile TV entertainment apps, along with 16GB of built-in storage.

Dell Venue T-Mobile


Quote:
Dell's AMOLED-equipped WP7 debut has just gone official with a cringe-worthy renaming to the Venue Pro for T-Mobile, who has in turn announced its intention to carry the 4.1-inch portrait QWERTY slider "in time for the holidays." Notably, you won't be able to purchase the Venue Pro directly from T-Mo stores, as Dell and its choice of handpicked retailers are set to handle the purchasing experience. Don't look for any AT&T hookups, either -- Dell has acknowledged T-Mobile as its "launch partner" for the device, giving team Magenta a second major exclusive, even if this one doesn't last much beyond the launch period. Needless to say, we'll seek to confirm the full spec sheet as soon as we can, though the officially known 1GHz Snapdragon chip and 5 megapixel imager

That's just a few

I'm also waiting for WP7. I was waiting for Droid2 Global but after reading a bunch of articles on WP7, it sounds promising.

I'm pretty sure I'm getting the HTC Surround, but if the LG's keyboard feels good, I'll probably go with it. I'm just hesitant about AT&T. Everyone I know with AT&T has just a little less coverage wherever we are.

I want to do this, but I hate my Storm oh so much... I can't wait to get a new phone. Bleh. My contract doesn't end for another 7 months, so we'll see, I guess.

That'll give you time to wait out the bugs it may have or even add in copy/paste and things they left out.
