    You are looking for global roaming right? What else don't you like about the Pro 7? I did research but I would like more perspective on the phone.
    That is the only thing I am waiting for. Otherwise I love it. Sure C&P and Multitasking will be nice, and I know they are coming, they are not a deal breaker for me. Global roaming however is. And we know CDMA support is coming, but no manufacturers are making CDMA/GSM phones. I blame this on the likes of HTC, Samsung, LG, etc... not Microsoft.

    I believe that Microsoft and the manufacturers both share the blame on this one. Microsoft needs to push out as many phones on as many carriers as they can. They have a very vested interest in this and should be working hard to get it done. Of course I guess this all the ramblings of a frustrated Pre owner. I am getting the same treatment from HP and Sprint with that "in the coming months" BS.

    Yeah, I hear you. I really was confused though that MS chose to ignore CDMA,l especially because Sprint has always been the strongest Windows Mobile community out of all the carriers. I would have thought they would want to get that base up and running first.

    I am not quite sure how device development happens though. Who has more influence on the features of a device, let's say putting global roaming in a CDMA phone. Is this something the carriers like Sprint and VZW push the OEM's to do?

    Can someone explain to me how Microsoft is responsible for phones not being on CDMA networks? I'm honestly curious.. it seems like it's really the manufacturers that simply haven't made any CDMA WP7 phones. I can't see how the WP7 software is somehow not compatible with CDMA network unless I'm missing something? Halp me LOL

    I would suppose the carriers have the say since they know how many globe trotting clients they have etc. I mean I am sure Microsoft has a good idea of who wants what, but Sprint has the actual customer data to back it up.

    ces was very dissapointing I just don't understand why they didn't at least anounce new devices on sprint and version and actual dates for everything... I guess MWC is where we will see some sprint love I really need to get rid of this pre and the HTC pro 7 just isn't the device for me I need more storage... But anyways I really hope MWC is a different story and M$ steals the show with 4g devices and badass hardware and software, iam the only one that noticed sprint didn't get any phones? Wtf is up with that? Maybe it's becuz they didn't actually persent yet but still version and at&t got a **** ton of andriods..

    I am not sure if you are being sarcastic or not but some of us are just cell phone users. I have no insight in to the process of who does what when a phone is in development. Is it wrong for me to be disappointed at Microsoft and Sprint? Like I said, most of the frustration comes from the lack of phones out there that I woul dlike to own. Love WebOS, hate my Pre. Like the EVO hardware, hate the Android OS. WP7 looks like something I would love, but I can't seem to get my hands on one. This is my curse. :-( lol

    Windows Phone 7 in current form does not support CDMA networks. The next update in either January or February will add support for it. HTC already has two CDMA devices ready to go, just waiting for the software support.

    They are:

    HTC 7 Pro for Sprint
    HTC Trophy for VZW

    The second the WP7 update is released these phones will be for sale on Sprint and VZW.
