The other 99.99% of people will *LOVE* what Windows phone offers, and that's the market Microsoft is aiming for.
Yeah, that's pretty much what I thought after watching that 20 minute video by the Seven design team guy. I started out thinking the whole thing looked terrible in the trade show videos, but I get what they're trying to do now, and the overall experience is really very well-though-out. Still, I'm not sure if it will be for me. We'll see how it goes, because we really don't have enough information yet to make an informed decision, but I'm thinking it's likely that I'll have to shift over to Android when my Imagio hits its end of life. I'll feel a bit of a loss if I do, though. It's been a very long road since that Velo1 and it would be the first time in many, many years that I wouldn't have a WindowsCE-based device in my pocket.
