    MS would be extremely dumb not to put Smart DJ in Mango; it was already idiotic for them to leave it out of the initial release.

    Unless you have a very vast and varied music collection, Smart DJ without Zune Pass gets old fast, because it basically becomes just a genre playlist. Where it really shines is when you tie it in with the Pass because then it will get songs from the Marketplace that are not in your collection, allowing you to discover new music in a cool new way. I tried Zune Pass free for a month back when Zune HD was released and discovered a number of new songs that I would've never known had it not been for Smart DJ.

    When Mango is released and this God forsaken wireless company finally releases a Windows Phone, I will probably start paying for Zune Pass as it will become truly awesome with on-the-go Smart DJ, all for less than $15/month (and 10 free tracks!).
    Yeah I've been a Zune Pass subscriber pretty much since the beginning of the service and love it. I've only had a Zune 30 device (which doesn't have SmartDJ), so using the Trophy will be a nice step up for me.

    I have over $1M in poker winnings and have played around 650 games of hearts on my Zune HD. :D

    MS stole the Zune team to put WP7 together, so there are very few apps, but I think WP7 was worth it.

    Ok now that we have a date and someone with insider info (thanks wireless vet) what is the 1st thing you are going to do with your shiny new wp7 phone on verizon's network.

    I for one am just looking forward to a nonbuggy phone that I can actually text on. I've been going back and forth between a imagio and a storm. They both are way messed up and I am just trying to make it to the trophy. So with the storm freezing and the imagio's screen being way off no matter how many times I try and align it I'm just looking forward to texting.
    If you're on an imagio, you should be able to use letter recognizer or block recognizer without having to worry *too* much about the alignment.

    I for one will miss resistive touchscreens. :( Still holding out on my Omnia 2 until that Trophy comes out. Then I will put my 3DS in a gold box and guard it with my life until the combo-platter screens start coming out!

    yeah sometimes I would do that but it often didn't work or wasn't fast enough to type out text at work without getting caught

    Ok just got it ordered so hopefully in a few days I'll be able to tell everyone exactlly what I'm doing when I open it and pull it out and get to do all the things I've thought about doing.

    I was very worried about giving up my resistive touch screen and even purchased a spare Tilt2, figuring it might be a couple years before they came out with capacitive/resistive combo screens (have already seen them tested). Then I tried out my Surround at the store and was like "wow". I occasionally miss not having the accuracy of a stylus, but not enough for it to matter.
