As it is, I agree that WinMo is ugly and not too friendly, but stuff like TouchFlo, Samsung Keyboard, Opera and the suites created by SPB, Kinoma, Resco fixed it to the point that iPhone looks more like a toy to me and I'm still waiting to see the best from Android (nice interface out of the box and... oh yeah, nothing else the WinMo doesn't do). So that's what was lacking on the WinMo, great thing they're fixing.
I'm used to hearing gratuitous ranting towards anything Microsoft does, but this one's ironic: while for the first time all the press all over the world is raving about the Windows Mobile 7 promise, it's the faithful users of Windows Mobile from a Windows Mobile forum that rant! I don't get it. If Windows Mobile's so stupid and useless, why keep saying you're switching to other platform here? Just go and switch already.
No problem in switching. It's the gratuitous ranting that's stupid. Even more so coming from advanced users who most times run modified versions of WinMo that run much better than the average smartphone and certainly much better than Androids and iPhones everywhere. Give me a break...
Edit: when I say the press is all raving about the Windows Phone, don't take my word for it:

I don't understand all the comments about iPhone and Android being 6 months ahead by the time this comes out. I can't really see either platform making an unforeseen quantum leap by Xmas. Apple may possibly add multi tasking and better hardware. Hardly earth shattering.

...The text rendering uses a technique called 'sub pixel rendering' for excellent readability even when zoomed far out.
You mentioned smoke and mirrors. Why didn't they just use the term ClearType? - that's what they've been calling subpixel rendering/smoothing for the last decade..
Thanks for the Desire ROM btw

I saw a lot of vid's for win mo 7. None of them impressed me. In fact, i find win mo 7 a bit UGLY. I am disappointed. A while back i discovered custom rom's for my Omnia i900 (Ock's ROMs are the best!!) and now i am spoiled like hell... :-) Maybe someday i will buy me a new Android-phone. That's where the WoW factor is these day's.

Google or Apple simply have proven to most customers that you do not have to have crappy Windows Mobile devices. In 3 years, Apple and Google have turned things around.
Microsoft are now trying to catch up! And look ..... they use Pinch and Zoom features! And to unlock the phone you slide your finger!
WOW!!!!! I mean..... WOW! They must be amazing people to come up with that idea !! But hang on ... someone already did .... years back
Integration with XBOX is fine - IF YOU have one!! And want one!!
Nah! Will stick with the iPhone - Does exactly what I want (including making calls!!!) and alot more!

Microsoft offers a great approach to phone software, distinguished by more smarter design of its phone.
Games are one of the features of which is delivers the first and only official Xbox LIVE experience on a phone.
Waiting for this phone..
