    I have got a Samsung focus as soon as WP7 came out and so far I am very happy with my device except for few glitches that makes me restart my device every now and then when I scroll too fast in the Marketplace. Apart from that, I am very happy with my device and WP7 in general and hope all these glitches are fixed very soon.

    The two big things I really need for my phone are-

    1. Support for MicroSD cards: This is really crucial as my phone is fast filling up with my lots of apps, games, one notes, pictures, videos from bitbop, etc, etc.,

    2. Samsung cases: I see some really cool cases for iPhone and other Android devices. I want to see vendors jump on WP7 devices as well and come up with some good variety for us to choose from.

    Here are some cool cases that I want to see for my Samsung Focus-

    I would like to see a good car mount with car power adapter for the Samsung Focus so that we can use it for turn-by-turn GPS. We just got a free turn-by-turn app in the marketplace, so this makes total sense to me.

    I am sick and tired of Apple controlling people's minds. Why exactly does my phone have to be thin? Because the iPhone ads claim that it is the thinnest phone in the world? Does anybody see the number of auxiliary power solutions for the iPhone? Why should all of these solutions be necessary? Apparently, Apple's design philosophy is that users should not have to think about things like multi-tasking and it should just be intuitive. Wouldn't it be nice if I didn't have to think of charging my phone during the day? Now I shall jump off my soap box.

    I loved the extended battery on my Treo 650 2400 mAh (if I am not mistaken) with its bulky cover which made it easy to hold and lifted the speakerphone away from the flat surface it was placed on so it could be heard loud and clear and also allowed the ringer to come through loud and clear!

    Guess what I am asking for.... a bit fat extended battery for my LG Quantum. Big backside included! To paraphrase Freddie Mercury - Fat Bottomed Phones you make the rockin' world go round!!!

    I am a huge sucker for docks/cradles. I would love to see one for Windows Phones. Maybe even with an extra slot for charging that secondary battery sans phone?

    I second an IR option for the phones that can homebrew Logitech Harmony apps. That would be crazy fun but at the same time not something I HAVE to have. Thus far it would appear everything I personally would need does indeed exist :) Software on the other hand...that's another thread.

    I've used a Seidio clip in the past and really liked it. And now that phones do so much more I'd love to see the Seidio clip do much more.

    Two main things really:
    1. I'd like to see the case be a battery based charging system. It's OK if it's a little think and the weigh of it is on my belt. Not too thick, but enough battery to juice it up for a long weekend.
    2. And for when it's not on my belt, I'd lvoe to see the thing have a nice simple kickstand for landscape viewing on a plane with headphones, or in my hotel room (the ones you sometimes get with no cable and no on-demand; perfect for some NetFlix action or a downloaded Zune movie.

    Keep up the strong design and keep it low-key fashionable,

    This case is exactly what I'm looking for. The over priced cases in the AT&T store are just ridiculous (the price is ridiculous, not the cases).

    I would like a car mount for my Windows Phone for when I use my GPS. In addition, an extended battery through the micro usb would be nice.

    The prospect of simply placing my phone on a surface or in a specific area and having it automatically start charging wirelessly would be awesome. With all of the wireless technologies we have going, the biggest hassle is to have to plug my phone in to charge it.

    Having the receiver built into the phone itself would be best, but if it could somehow be integrated into a case, i.e. the Seidio case, then I would love that just much. A simple charging pad on my nightstand or one that I can plug into the car would make it easy to charge on the road at at home. This would work great in a car GPS mount too. Why isn't something like this more popular? Oh, and you've gotta make it affordable. I'm not going to pay through the nose for this, no matter how cool it is.

    I am disappointed that WP7 phones do not have an accessory port.

    I had several HP/Compaq iPaqs and the best feature on those PDAs was the accessory port and the one of the best features of the iPhone is also the accessory port.

    Now, it may be that Apple has a lock on these patents, but then I see the Motorola Atrix and again, I see the value of the accessory port.

    This is one aspect that I believe which is missing and makes it difficult to have docking stations or additoinal adapters for the phone. I am sure something could probably be done via USB or bluetooth but both suck battery while the Apple port allows access and charging all in one.

    I have a rubber skin right now and a screen protector and I am very happy. Because I had the iPaq for so long and because it was designed to fit many devices in the way it would designed to hold the ipaq, I have an awesome way to use my phone in my car. The only thing missing is a decent GPS application. I still use my TomTom until my phone is good enough to replace it.

    I believe that WP7 is exciting but frustrating in how long updates are taking and i believe a lot of use will be frustrated when WP8 devices show up.

    Would love to see a car dock with charging and aux built in.
    so i can charge my focus and use my car speakers for music and speaker phone.

    all the universal docks out there now, press on the camera button, and that's annoying.

    Inductive charging backs for me. Being able to sync my Focus wirelessly is great; still having to plug in for power really drags the experience down. Ideally, the OS would recognize when the phone is charging inductively so that it would turn on WiFi and look for the home network, making the home charge and sync experience as easy as dropping the phone on a charging mat. In the mean time, it would be pretty trivial to have the charging back have a slim plug for the microUSB port. Obviously this would be beyond the scope of many manufacturers, but I'd quickly jump on this, especially if there was an option for a higher capacity back. Seidio makes a higher capacity battery; I wonder if they'd be up to the task.

    looking at all the one post poster, I would say this little contest is working for you. I think each commenter in this post should be entered into the give box once for each post they have that is not in this thread.

    I like slipcases, rather than actual fitted cases that you keep on. I had one for my G1 android that would have fit my WP7 but lost it one drunken night and never got around to getting a new one :(

    I honestly think an extended battery with a stretchy silicone case would be great! I have an extended for my HD7, but now because of the extra size, no case will fit, which leaves my phone exposed. The extra battery life is great, but having a combo of the extra battery power and a nice cover to protect the phone would be ideal!

    I'd really like to see a tripod mounting system for various Windows Phone 7 devices.

    I can see an X-shaped adjustable bracket with a tripod screw hole at the bottom. The bracket could be adjusted to fit various phone models wheather they are in a carrying case or not, and the X-Shape of the bracket is designed so it does not occlude the lens. Alternatively, existing cases could be modified to include a tripod mount.

    Either way, this would be fantastic.

    I'd like to see a hardcase that has a cover for the screen that you can flip open when using it. That way I don't have to worry about smashing my screen, but can just flip the cover out of the way when needed. And this is probably far off, but if they could incorporate a keyboard into that cover (and have it fold landscape direction like my old enV II) that accesses the phone through the USB port, THAT would be awesome. I'm getting used to the touch screen on my Focus, but miss the hard keys at times. I probably shoulda got the Quantum like my wife did, but I got greedy on screen size, lol.

    I'll have to say that I'd like to see different colored back plates for the Focus. The least appealing part is the back itself. It's very easy to remove and replace, but I've never seen any back plates in the market.

    I agree with other posters that a charging cradle would be great. This one thing I miss most about previous phones I've had is a charging cradle that also charges a 2nd battery. This was not only a convenient way to charge the phone, but having a fully charged backup battery saved me may times.
    The location of the USB port on top of the phone does mean that this would be inconvenient, but it would be worth even having to plug in an extra cable.

    Docking station, speaker set in a slimline but, with good bass case. A nice looking office/bedroom charger for the HTC Trophy.

    What would of been nice if MS actually made all WP7 models have the connectors in the same place on each of the phones, then all that speaker docs and alarmclock things could be made for WP7 like the iphone.

    I plan on getting the HTC Trophy when Verizon wireless releases it, I would love a good case to protect it.
