"Who needs a tablet with a phone like this"4.5 starson by imanym
Pros: Smooth interface, excellent gaming, very nice build quality, xbox live gaming interface, accepts my older Touch Pro2 battery.
Cons: Whats with the You Tube video quality, battery lseemed to be a bit weak (purchased the bigger battery and solved that problem right away)
Summary: I had the older windows mobile 6.5 with a touch pro 2 and upgraded to this phone. Wow was this a huge step for Microsoft. I recently purchased the HP Slate and got rid of it because it just did not fit into my schedule. Now, if the slate had this user interface it would have been my favorites. The Windows phone 7 UI is just amazing and the 1ghz snapdragon processor is quick. This is the first device that I can not complain about not being able to upgrade the memory. There seems to be more than enough memory available. I have had this device for a week so far and I am just amazed with its performance. Although, the battery could have been a bit better out of the gate it is not all that bad for regualr use. I believe I get at least a day and the following morning out of the battery when used as a phone and some minor feaures. However, if you use the device heavily, which I tend to do now that it is 10 times more fun to use than the previous version, it will last about your average work hours. I do wish the screen was a tad bit bigger, as I think I can do much more with this device than I could with my old Touch Pro2. Also, its integrated Sky drive and also the new office 365 should serve as a means to do work on the go withou opening my laptop is going to prove to be extremely useful. Also as long as I have been a verizon carrier, they have never been the one to market ms phones at all. A matter of fact, whenever I purchase a windows phone from verizon, they rarely have the windows phone out on display. They are usally in a forest of all other phones. Also, what is with you tube video quality. I go better video quality from my much slower touch pro2 than this device and I know its not the Trophy because, the video quality from NetFlix is awesome, so whats the deal. Last and not least the 7.5 upgrade is going to be awesome can't wait.
I definitley recommend this phone, and hope that it triggers some serious competition, now MS lets get cracken on the tablet os :)
