You're a lucky dude. I'm jealous. I'm going to swing by a Verizon store this weekend to check it out. Good to hear you're enjoying it.

Looked at Droid, iPhone4, and wp7. Came down to WP7. No regrets, however, my step son has an iPhone and my son is getting one for Xmas. After messing with his I would not complain about having an iPhone. But, I prefer my Wp7 phone.

I find it almost amazing someone would chose a WP7 over something else. It's not a terrible phone, but I don't really find anything great about it.

I'm not saying you made a bad choice or anything like that. It's your call and you seem happy. I am curious how you ended at that decision. I don't know who the WP7 customer is. Our company hasn't sold one in months. I'm honestly curious what features sold you as it might help me sell them in the future.

Looks like "Ice Cream Sandwich" is copying iOS even more.

More user friendly. Ability to put apps in folders. Voice text. Ability to take screenshots. In a nutshell.

Apparently a perk for android was it being more complexed if you read the entire thread. The new features were what I read about the nexus in the USA today app.

Sorry but those aren't new. I can do them on my phone. Android is already user friendly but the points made in the thread were about taking advantage of the other, more complex features if you choose

I guess the article was wrong, my bad. What is an example of some of the more complex features?

I haven't seen an example. I just heard that android was complexed & for rocket scientists & iPhone was for technically challenged simpletons. Just looking for an example of the complexity.
