    My first annoyance was the fact that there was no copy/paste. I'm sure that will be added very soon, so I wouldn't worry about that.

    WP7 is very much WYSIWYG. There are really no options to change how anything works or looks. Many 'Settings' menus have only a couple options. Example: There is no option to change font size. It's especially annoying in the browser.

    The homescreen isn't customizable. Having those big tiles is cool at first, but there is a ton of wasted space. I'd much rather have 3 or 4 tiles per row instead of 2. Each email account needs it's own tile. Since I use 3 email accounts, that takes up a lot of the screen. As you add more tiles, it takes much more scrolling to find them. It'd be nice to have adjustable tile size.

    You can't see exactly how much battery you have left. All you get is a little battery icon.

    Wifi and signal strength indicators are hidden most of the time.

    I'm sure I'll think I'll some more things that annoyed me... lol

    Thank you for that hands on detail. I'll find out how much of a trade off it is compared to the improvement in speed and great looking "Metro" UI they employ. You find any cool apps?

    At least the "quarter baked" one is a ton more fluid and lag free than the half baked one.

    funny we use WP7 AT&T phones at my job, and I really like the OS 2nd to Webos. If it is indeed the htc pro 7 ill prob pick it up in hopes the Pre 3 is still coming this summer, and give me a phone to use for a while till then.

    I didn't do too much digging through the Marketplace. I can say that it's a pain to navigate though lol.

    I did find one app that I really liked. Board Express. It's a WP7 Tapatalk app. Worked fine until I tried to sign in (which caused some kind of infinite loop). I really liked the interface of it... Felt fresh.

    One thing I did like is that paid apps let you download a fully functional demo version. I forget how long you're able to use it, but it's great to be able to try out an app before you buy it.

    That's true. WP7 is extremely fluid and smooth. I'd still rather use webos for now though...

    Its a tough call...i want to use Wp7 for a bit to make a final judgement, but i would miss the customization (from patching) you can do with WebOS...but i use many of the MS ecosystem that would be awesome to have built into the phone (zune and Xbox).

    I'm taking full advantage of Sprint's 30 day policy to make this same evaluation. Maybe the grass aint any greener on the other side but I am going to find out soon.

    In other words, WP7 has the same issues as everything else put out by Microsoft.

    It says to check back on the 24th, via engadget. Could it be the Pre announcement?

    To the common man, it's a tease.

    To a Palm Pre/Pixi user, it's a hot poker jabbed in the right eye.
