I'd gladly buy a WP7 device to replace my ZuneHD, but unfortunately none of the phones out there or the unreleased ones I've been hearing about come close to the many of the hardware specs of the ZuneHD.
Why can't they make a WP7 that has:
- at least 32 GB
- dual processor to ensure some future proofing
- big high resolution screen
Once I see a phone like that, then I'll consider buying a WP7.
Also, Microsoft is missing out on the teen and tween market. My pre-teen niece eventually bought herself an iPodTouch even though she was a Zune user for many years, b/c she wanted to be able to launch apps. She has a phone but she is not old enough to have a phone WITH an expensive data plan. So the iPod Touch fit her needs.
The number of apps available for the ZuneHD is pitiful. In order for Microsoft to keep my niece as a customer, there needed to be a Zune that could tap into the apps that are available to WP7 devices.
Hey, Danny! Aren't you going to be working for HTC now. Maybe you can convince them to create a WP7 device that is worthy for us Zune users AND a non-phone PMP device to tap into the teen/tween market.
