Default WP7 Anyone?

Please Login to Remove!

Not me! But Sprint just released the HTC Arrive, the first CDMA phone running WP7. Boy Genius Report has a hands-on review, and while they say it's the best WP7 phone of them all so far it definitely has some flaws. Here's the review: HTC Arrive review | BGR

I have the Samsung Focus, which is the AT&T WP7 offering.
WP7 is totally different, altogether (Airplane reference).

Best WP7 phone is a lefthanded compliment. Not sure what niche this smartphone is trying to fill. A bit late to the game with BBs, iPhones and Androids running around. On the one hand it works with XBox Live and on the other they tout the wonderful integration with SharePoint 2010.

Battery life on the Focus is average - as good as a 9700/9780, but the one I have is not CDMA, which is notorious for eating batteries. Interesting how Verizon is avoiding WP7 like the plague...

It is one of my backup phones. In their commercials Microsoft promised that it would give me my life back. It didn't. They lied.

Not only did they lie to you, but I hear that every time somebody activates a WP7 phone Steve Ballmer kills a baby kitten.
