Hopefully I'll be picking up an HTC Surround also today!

And, yes, there's a sync thingy for Macs. It integrates with iTunes, although I can't test it until I get a WP7 device.


So are you going from iPhone to WP7 on OS X? You'd be in the same boat as me...let me know your impressions.

No. I have an iPad.

I'm gonna try syncing on my Macbook and then if that doesn't let me buy apps, then I'll sync on my Win7 desktop.

I have my music synced between my macbook and Win7 desktop anyways with Windows Live Mesh.

EDIT: my current phone is an HTC Pure running WinMo 6.5 Pro

I can't decide between the Focus or the Surround. Anyone get the Focus?

So far I like it. The XBL integration is really good.

I have the Focus and I love it.

However, I would wait until they fix the issue with microSD. The Focus comes with 8gb of storage but has a microSD slot where you can throw in as much as 32gb of microSD. if you are going to do a lot of gaming you will want the extra space.

If you have a specific question, let me know but I have had it since launch and really have had no issue except for the microSD which is a Samsung problem

I have the following games:

Unite
Chess4all
Need for Speed Undercover (better than the iPhone version I played)
de Blob
Flight Control
imolio

I know a lot of downloads of Harvest of happened but not sure I am willing to pay $8 for game on my phone. I have a very long daily commute and there are mostly to pass the time if I am not doing work.

How can WinPhone7 be exclusive to one or two carriers here in the US? I'm not sure that is a great strategy considering the marketshare that the iPhone and Blackberry already have. Even more mind boggling is that they went with AT&T as their horse, so they are going head to head with Apple & BB right at the point of sale. Any word on them expanding to Verizon or other carriers anytime soon?

Hail to Pitt!

All the major carriers in Europe already have them. Its CDMA that is always problematic in the USA

Thanks for the info! Glad to hear WP7 will be coming to Verizon. Will probably pick one up then, but I'm not a huge fan of touch screens so hopefully there will be some decent options that at least have a keypad for txt/email/etc. I am partial to my blackberry, but I guess if one of the touch screen phones is similar to the Droid my wife has I'd be ok with that.

Anyone here have one of the phones with the keypad? Any impressions?

I wonder if new XBL games will come each Wednesday. Assassin's Creed went up today.

6.99...seems high but that's what is used to be on the iPhone.

Are there any other Windows Phone 7 developers here, or just end users?

Verizon is already confirmed for early 2011 with the "Trophy" WP7 phone. The Reason it didn't launch on Verizon at launch is due to the lovley Kin debacle Microsoft had with Verizon. Though it seems that's been resolved. (Maybe why the Kin is on sale again at Verizon?)

Took my Surround back. That is the hottest phone I've ever owned. I would barely be doing anything with it and it would be blazing hot. Also didn't care about not being able to download ringtones. I'll wait a bit before I decide to give it another try.

Posting this from my HTC HD7. I forgot sometimes that this site does have other threads besides deals. So I decided to see if there was any talk of WP7 and here I am. :)

Absolutely love the phone. What I've been expecting and more since I've been following it since first announced.

I would go with the focus, the screen is so freaking nice. Plus I have never noticed it get hot at all ever. Even after a half hour of playing games via Xbox LIVE on it.

Actually it was out 2 days ago along with Assassin's Creed. Maybe it is only on Wednesdays.

LMAO! Sounds like Micro$hit succeeded at their campaign to have at least one person put down their phone and "get back to life".

Guess what. The phone getting hot would be due to the phone's designer, not Microsoft. And man, that was a stupid post, dude. You should pat yourself on the back if that's what you were going for.
