You seem to be a big fan of the term fanboy. It seems like the pot calling the kettle black. Anyway an interesting story is that my brother was teaching an iPhone programming course and one of the students asked if he could write for Windows Mobile instead of iPhone and my brother replied, "No. The name of the course is iPhone development." Supposedly, no student liked Objective-C; I'm not a big fan either, but at least it's better than C++.
Active people, ordinary people, youngsters, grannies will soon relies that there’s one smart phone that worth buying, namely Windows Phone7.
Windows Phone7 combined with HTC Technology is the bundle of joy, the end of suffering, the end of desperation.
With windows phone7 in your hand; you can (for the first time in history) keep your notebook at home and fly far as far as china while keeping your files, your family pictures, your videos, your emails and your toys right in front of you.
The best thing about WP7 is you don’t have to take permission from Microsoft if you want to reset it or if you want to change the background image, once you bought it; it’s yours. If you are an IPhone user; you know exactly what I mean. And for those who don’t know the story let me explain:
Apple Iphone sold to you but still considered property of Apple Co-Finder Steve Jop, meaning you cannot install or uninstall any applications on your IPhone (not even a little calculator) unless approved by Apple and bought from Apple. Then of course you need (a credit card).
If you are in a Honey moon and (God Forbid) your IPhone Jammed; you are screwed, in such case you will have to purchase Apple IMac (a Computer-like gadget) and you will need an Internet access to run some diagnoses on the IPhone, you will have to download 500Megabyte firmware and an ITune (Apple Spyware) but this is just the beginning, you will have to cancel all your meetings, your pride’s requirements and to disconnect yourself from society for 3days and 3nights then if you are a computer junky like me you may end up with a half working iphone. I have watched people (on UTube) hacking there iphone with a hake sow, some hammering it with snitch hummer, some drove over it as an expression of frustration. The End

I'm for WP7 100% and totally dislike Apple but most of what you said in your comment is wrong. Windows phone 7 will be locked down like the iPhone and the only way to install applications will be through Microsoft's marketplace. I disagree with you saying "once you bought it; it’s yours," because when compared to WM6.5, WP7's customizability is extremely low.
I apologize if I misled anybody with my post her, I do realize that apps will be purchased through Microsoft market place but again most of the (needed applications) are integrated in WP7, apps like Office, social networking ..Etc meanings you can use fully functional phone out of the box, without even have internet connection, unlocking or jail breaking; you don’t even have to have a PC which means more freedom, more uptime and less headache
For customization; I am sure there will be some way around it, although I am happy with it as is.
I just wish WP7 Allow us to plug it in and use it like a mass storage device so we can drag and drop different sort if files and then open them through their corresponding apps.
Most people have a good feeling about this device and I do wish MS a good luck, I travel a lot and surely it feels great to fly for the first time without my Laptop.

You're the WP7 equivalent of a raging Apple fanboy. In fact, you're worse. You're trying to sound technical without any technical know-how to back up your ridiculous claims.
An Apple iPhone is fully functional out of the box. It has social networking and all the everyday things that the layman will be able to use, and use well. That's why it's so POPULAR. You can't customize WP7 anymore than you can the iPhone, and you're locked down into the Microsoft Marketplace ecosystem just like the App store. WP7 will need its equivalent form of jailbreaking due to this lockdown.
The iPhone sucks, and I'm all for seeing Android and/or webOS succeed, but the ridiculous BS that you spew here disgusts me. What a f*cking idiot.
There’s absolutely no need to use bad language, please don’t get me wrong her but Windows Phone7 designed for smart, active, and dynamic people.
I understand you frustration when you are not allowd to use Your Iphone with your left hand, but hay look at the bright side about it; you can still use it as an MP3 player. I mean who needs to make or receive phone calls?
Hi ther me am ckjordan me is a smert pirsen an me dus no lots abowt wp7. Me alsow nos that ifone is not good compard tew wp7. Mayb wen i pas my hi schule eqivlency test or mayb a 6 graed level typing level test I will b abl to gets me a windo fone. I kant wate. It wil b awsum.
An update for WP7 is coming soon, hopefully bridging the gap with the iPhone with the addition of multitasking and copy paste.
Right now the platform has serious bugs like the Marketplace application crashing all the time, Windows style (need to reboot to get it back on) and app updates don't work for apps in trial.
Too bad MSFT is only pushing rare bulk updated and not providing maintenance releases.
More comparison with the iPhone and WP7 shortcomings (and critical bugs...):

Iphone could have the best hardware in the world which it doesn't, but the OS is dated and looks antiquated compared to WP7 and Android. Apple is going to be on the decline starting late 2011 early 2012. There's just too many better choices nowadays and non fanboys want to try something different.
Steve Jobs has aids according to wikileaks. I always thought he looked like a queer with his turtlneck uniform. I can't beleive he showed up at the whitehouse in jeans ( no urine stains this time) and that stupid turtlneck sweater. Show some respect you idiot.
