Microsoft Windows Phone 7

Here lately I've been bombarded with all kinds of wp7 propaganda so today I thought I would see what I could find out about it.  So far it's not going to be able to work on CDMA carriers until early next year plenty of time for people to consider and buy other smartphones.  Some apps took as long as a three minute load time how annoying can that be.  The only thing worth waiting that long to load on a smartphone is msfconsole for iPhone.  Now as far as I know there weren't any issues with the old windows mobile phones to bsod let's keep our fingers crossed on this one.  Instead of calling a friend back and explain that you went through a service dead zone your phone gave you IRQL_NOT_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL hopefully this won't happen.  It still doesn't have copy and paste but will be along in an update down the road.  This seems to be a pattern with all manufacturers to leave out something everyone else has then release it in an update whether it be updated hardware (iPhone)or software update we never can have everything that is available.  The large amounts of HTC phones that will be running the wp7 will give it a shot in the arm and help it stay competitive.  Just not looking forward to yet another smartphone app marketplace but that is a topic for another day.
