Windows Fascinating, this. As a Windows Phone 7 user, I can attest that it is every bit as good as iOS and Android - heck, in my experience, it is more polished, more consistent, smoother, and faster than either of those two. Yet, despite raving reviews and glowing user comments all over the web, Windows Phone 7 simply isn't selling. Former Windows Phone 7 general manager Charlie Kindel believes it's because neither carriers nor device makers like the control Microsoft exerts over the platform.

I dont know if this holds true for the win7 phones, but im scared to buy one since the CE area.

When Microsoft made the CE devices they did the oposite of the desktop version no backward compability at all.

If you bought a 5.0 device you where screwed within a year when they released newer versions of CE you could not run apps for newer versions and they wanted you to scrap you old phone and buy a new.

with ios and android i know the phone will be uasable for 3years
