  1. LG has revealed its thoughts on the Windows Phone 7 launch in October 2010, saying it could have been better. While Microsoft will definitely not be too happy with the statements, it's not all bad news for the software giant.

    I'm still thinking about picking up the LG quantum. My blackberry pearl is showing it's age. I've had it s since 2006. Surprised the battery still works.

    Have you seen the new pearl? It's around half as big and it's impossible to type on.

    Have you tried typing on it? Didn't think so.

    I own it... What was that comment for? Obviously if I state it's difficult to type on I obviously own it or have used it extensively.

    Your comment was indeed uncalled for, Emil. I know there are people who say things like that based on hearsay, but to just assume Princeton doesn't have one and throw out a crude comment like that is...well...kind of childish. As part of the techspot staff, we would expect a little more from you than that. I don't mean to be so straightforward, but it's the truth.

    But anyway, for me, the jury is still out (once a week I waltz into a store and play with one), but I haven't heard that many great things about it. Though as with most phones, it's all personal preference. I still haven't made up my mind if I like it or not, but it doesn't matter since I don't actually own one. From most of the people i've talked to, they just didn't like the interface. I think we are just too used to the iPhone/Android interface (homescreen with app shortcuts and then app menu). I myself am a little scetchy on the interface. But as with anything new and different, it takes time to get used to.

    Agreed. That comment is not befitting a Techspot staff member. You're held to a higher standard Emil.

    I got a Samsung Focus in Dec., and for me, the UI was one of the main reasons I got the phone. It's beautiful and arranged in a manner that makes sense when you don't try to view your phone as just a mobile desktop or laptop. I wanted something different than a computer-like experience with most of the features OF a computer. I couldn't be happier (well, no, I could use copy & paste) with WP7. My phone has become more useful to me than my old iPhone 3G.

    Don't worry. You guys will be getting copy,paste and other features in the upcoming patch. I was going to get a windows mobile 7 phone but all my carrier has is the LG optimus quadrant. I want the HD7.

    Oh, absolutely. I'm not worried one bit about WP7, nor do I buy into all of the doom and gloom stories. What I'd like to see are some Tegra 2 WP7 phones.

    I'm pissed. I bought the galaxy S because bell didn't have the HD7. Now they're getting the HD7 next week. Someone kill me please.
