    Anyone here using a Windows Phone 7 powered phone? I am on Sprint right now using a Palm Pre but sadly the Pre is no longer being made and I have no idea if the Pre 3 will even be avaliable on Sprint. The girlfriend has an Evo 4g at the moment so I have been considering the Evo Shift or a WP7 powered phone when they release it next week. I am eligable for a full upgrade in April and was looking to get some input from anyone who currently uses a WP7 phone or has had a chance to play with one.

    This guy at work went from a Iphone 3GS to a Dell Venue Pro says he loves it, but you'd have to go to T-Mobile. I'd wait on WP7 for some updated phones. Not a huge market yet on them. I don't think WP7 will last in Iphone/Android era

    I think I am going to wait for the next generation of Windows Phones. I got bent over being an early adopter when I stood in line to get my Palm Pre. I think I am going to pick up an Evo Shift. WP will only fail if Microsoft lets hit. No one thought Microsoft would break into the gaming world the way they did either.

    I have the LG Optimus widows phone. I love it.

    I even let a few android guys play with it and they really like it too.

    It doesnt have the full potential an android phone or iPhone but I only used it for a couple apps and texting anyways.

    The operating system isnt buggy, i havent had any weird glitches yet. It has all the apps my iphone did and The live tiles are actually pretty cool.

    I also liked that mine had a big flip out key board but not all do.

    I think I am going to swing by the corp. Sprint store after work to check out the HTC Arrive. My girlfriends mom just got an Evo Shift the other day so I will be checking her phone out this weekend as well

    The girlfriend and I are on the same contract and she just picked up an Evo 4 months ago. So I am stuck for another two years anyway. However we have been discussing jumping ship after this round. Virgin is getting some great phones so I just may make the switch.
