    I think it looks like absolute sh#@.

    Even compared to the iPhone, Android with all its home screen flavors, and the Palm WebOS.

    As I've stated in other threads, I don't think the device is going to take off. As for the interface, I'll be fair and say that I would have to try it out before passing judgement.

    I would definitely have to try it out in real life before I make an opinion. I think it looks kind of neat (it is different) but functionality is a different matter.

    I'll have to try the full WinMo7 OS out in actuality before I make any final calls. I must admit that I like the whole Xbox Live integration portion.

    I like the look of it, but I reckon it'd get a little boring after a while.

    Can't wait to try the OS out, can't see myself giving up Android for it though...

    I like the simplicity behind it, but there is where I could see problems. If all you get is blocks and whatnot then there probably won't be a lot of customization. I'd have to try it to be sure though.

    I'd have to pick one up and play with it, but I can't bring myself to go to the ATT store. I'd rather have a spike driven through my head.

    From what I've seen it actually looks kind of confusing. At least I think it would be, at first. Everything kinda looks the same.

    I looks like something grandparents would enjoy in a smartphone. everything is rightthere in front of you, with no real need to modify anything.

    That said, I've actually played with WM& phones and abosolutely hated the experience. granted the phones I played with were the first generation of them that were shown about 6 months ago, so I'll reserve final judgement Until I see the new batch. As others have said, this strikes me as too little too late. I can't imagine too many people looking to sign up for an even more restrictive environment than apple's from a company with as checkered a product history as microsoft. I can't even see gamers taking up WP7 in any real numbers, because the games they love to play (mainly the deep, elaborate, full immersion first person shooters), are not available for the game connection on the phone. add the lack of local syncing with outlook (who's responsible for that decision), annd as pretty as they might be, this spells MAJOR FAIL to me. android, Apple and RIM have nothing to worry about from WP7.

    As a looong time Zune user i have to say that the interface of the Zune HD, (which is very similar to what I have seen of the Phone 7 interface) Is outstanding. Simple and intuitive. Very easy to navigate and quick to pick up. Probably the best interface microsoft has. Unfortunately, unless they get mac support it won't even get a look from me. I sold my beloved Zune HD because of the no-mac support thing that MS has. And Bootcamp and/or parallels is not a viable option for syncing phone data let alone your music library.

    I look forward to getting one. But, almost two years till my X is eol. If WM7 phones haven't turned out to be a flop, by then. I will definitely be getting one.
