How do I know? This week we received two Android devices to review, and next to Microsoft's shiny new OS they look boring. More important, when I talked to five people of varying ages who had seen what Windows Phone 7 could do, all said they would consider buying one-and none of them currently own smart phones."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1287105257.usr14226.jpg" style="border: #d2d2bb 1px solid;" /></p><p>Mark Spoonauer of Laptopmag.com has an editorial on Windows Phone 7 that's pretty positive on Microsoft's new OS. What I find interesting is that Google's Android has been singled out as the competition (what? is the iPhone irrelevant already?), and the value proposition will be a superior UI for Microsoft and price for Google. Are you guys thinking the same way? How many of you have changed your minds about Windows Phone 7?</p>
