    many emails you have in gmail or hotmail without opening your email app and checking two inboxes? You know whose phone can do that from the home screen? Mine. Sounds like you need a WP."

    Yep, just had this confab with wifey when she asked me if I could set up gmail AND hotmail notifications on her iPhone home screen.

    I have two friends who just switched from iphone to android. Neither are techies. I can't figure it out. One of them simply said because android is everywhere. =[. My wife still uses a messaging phone. I'll update her one of these days.

    While watching the TIGERS/Rangers game at the bar, the wife and I were having races, her iPhone vs. my Focus. Mostly on finding the name of the song playing on the jukebox. I won every time. Yea WP7!!!

    Although...once her Soundhound did find it...she had the lyrics and other info about the song right there, I had to go to the market place to find artist info and there wasn't a quick connect to other apps so I could instantly open that song in my "Lyrics" app. So, I won on speed, she won on information.

    she could download the hotmail app and have that separate from her gmail account in the mail app to have the separate icons and badges. She won't be able to have them together in the universal inbox however.

    ios has a unified inbox with a notification right on the home screen. You can check them the same way that you do on WP7. One inbox, one notification for emails from all accounts.

    It sure is! I just wish that in addition to the typical buttons on the lock screen that other apps like slacker radio or last.fm would also put their rating buttons on the lock screen too. Maybe a way to switch stations from there too. That would benefit me enormously.

    Yes, I've seen the direct rip they did with the Zune feature..I was like "Could you at least change the font??"
    LOL, still good to see them all make each other do more and more.

    I like this, especially that Sense 3.0 when you can unlock the phone and go instantly to certain places, like the phone.

    Seems ios 5 is really just a total rip off of other smartphone platforms, but the users and tech press will act as if apple invented everything themselves. Probably try and patent all the copied stuff too. Really cant stand that company, and their mindless followers.

    i cracked, not by choice at fiorst though. i was forced to switch carriers because of a very poor signal in my area. i thought sprint would be better so i gave them a shot . didnt like the htc wp7 they had so i went with a nexus s 4g. signal was worse than it was with tmobile. so i had to crack and head back to big red, verizon.(got an iphone 4) i always have a signal with them but i pay for it. to me it is worth it, which was completely validated while i was in gatlinburg for the weekend. always had a strong signal. while in gatlinburg i had a head to head battle with my brother who is die hard microsoft, despises apple. he has the htc hd7, (my old phone) and i have an iphone 4. both excellent phones, but i must say i beat him on almost every aspect. camera quality, internet speed, app opening, app quality via fps, bing audio vs soundhound, gps, the list went on... given some were carrier based, but overall the iphone wins. specs mean nothing to me, i am basing this off of user experience. iphone 4s sold over 1 million phones in 24 hours, microsoft has a lot of catching up to do... i hope they can swim.


    let the bashing begin, im a hypocrite, i know
