I tried to have an open mind and bought the iphone, used it for 2 months and dumped it as soon as the HD2 came out. I also have an Android (HTC Hero) too as I need 2 phones sometimes. The thing that really turns me of about the iphone is that lack of multitasking as many have pointed out. How many times do you have someone call you and ask if you are free on a particular day and you cannot bring up the calendar to see? For people like us who use the phone for everything WM is still the only device that can do that.
Wow, you had an iphone for two months and didnt realise that you can
open the calendar, or any other app for that matter while in a call?
Im an ex winmo user and honestly dont miss the multitasking at all.
In wm the only apps i kept open were activesync and mail, i'd actually spend a lot of time closing processes to keep the phone usable.
The core services of the iphone do run in the background (mail, phone, ipod) and ive never felt the need to have any others running in the background.
Im a sys admin for a large multimedia company and the iphone does everything i need quickly and without hassle.
My wm phones have served me well and also done everything i need (often without having to pay for an extra app) but i just ran out of patience with it.
To be honest, winmo7 is going to have to be pretty special even to tempt me back.
