    I think those articles are pretty good. They seem fairly non-biased.

    Thank you so much for listing them all out. I have the hardest time finding the next article. They really need to work on that.

    Some of those articles are like "pointless" imo. Seems pretty hard to cover things of substance over a span of 30 days

    I think if they'd show a list of topics by the end of the thirty days, then it could be useful to people that have specific want or needs in phones, as these articles are pretty thorough. Right now, though, they are just difficult to find and maneuver through.

    This was definitely useful for me and I agree with Judge_Daniel that it's irritating that the blog writer doesn't have a smooth implementation to move from day to day. He has gone back and has links for the next day partway through, but not for all days.

    It's always nice to hear things like this. Thanks for sharing.

    Personally, I have enjoyed these articles. I still don't own a WP7 (although I usually take over my sister's when I go visit her), so reading about someone else's first impressions is pretty interesting. Sure, I already knew about 95% of the stuff he is talking about, but it is nice to hear how he is perceiving the Windows Phone experience.

    As a tip for new readers coming across this list. I'd suggest starting with the latest day posted, then moving backwards. I kept having to refer to this list to get to the next day.

    They are nice articles. Good to see a news reporter actually use the devices as they were meant and discuss them. They don't always have the time to do that, hope he has a lot of readers!

    I like to read the comments. A day or two ago in the comments Tony Bradley said he was seriously considering getting a Titan or Focus S when they come out.
