I dont know if you know these thigs, but if iPhone pisses you off, then you wont like winpho7. It's microsoft's worse iPhone.
Some higlights:
- BIG requirements, but NO multitasking. ALSO Microsoft wont be shipping graphic drivers, so HTC's crappy drivers will continue.
- No folder structure. Means you wont be able to look at your folders and wont be able to use Phone as USB. Also no cab instalation, Every app will be installed through microsoft marketplace.
- No customization or ROM cooking will be supported. You wont be able to trun default interface off. You wont be able to flash (probably) other ROMs.

So basicly its super locked up phone with good looking app and games and fast core. Sounds like iPhone with stronger hardware which will be probably eaten up by hungry windows (as its in desktop version = vista, 7)

I'm sure the clever folk at XDA will be able to frig with WP7 somehow.
But if not, it's going to be awful unless FpseCE can make things a little cheerier. Seems like microsoft abandon the customer base they have to try and win over the iSheep users.

The thing I like about WinMo, is it's a PC and a phone. And I remember from one of the vids i've seen about WP7, that's exactly what they're trying to change. Just making it a phone, that's so restrictive. Ho hum...
