    I thought today would be the day at CTIA. The big event with samsung, LG, and HTC all showing off new devices. Nothing came about though, no phones, no pictures, no leaks, no rumors. A lot of Android phones came out (of course) and Verizon has a big party planned for another upcoming droid phone oct 18th. Kinda dissapointed we have not heard anything from the WPCentral folks either. Android Central has people there covering it! I guess the only thing to look forward too is Nokia World?

    Im talking in the short term. Yes in the future they will be having more phones but for a lot of people looking to get a WP7 right now there are very few options and no upcoming rumors of phones to a complany like Verizon. I was just hoping for some good news today!

    I agree with buckey
    we need to see more advertising and more phones coming out
    nothing from sprint or verizon has been heard, and I went to the sprint store again and I don't know why I put myself through it but I asked, when are we going to see more windows phone, he told me mango is good but the arrive is over priced at 199.00 and they don't refresh their line as much as android.
    I just walked away in discussed..

    I'm thinking that nokia will will have more phones out in 2012 that samsung, htc, dell, lg and asus. and lets hope people will buy them, this will get momentum up for the carriers .

    Think about it Samsung one phone in us one over seas, dell one phone, LG one phone in us one over seas..
    How many Dam androids do they make ? at least one per month.
    sorry for ranting but this is a great OS and phone its just that no one is giving it a chance.

    I feel like its a similiar situation to webOS, as I am still a Palm Pre owner, but looking into WP7 as my possible next device, but Sprints lack of availability isn't helping me make the switch anytime soon it seems.

    I'm sure Nokia is going to rehash some of their current hardware but in all honesty, that's what us Nokia users want anyhow. I wouldn't mind an N8 with Windows Phone on it or N9

    True that! I'd be willing to drop $250 on contract for a Mango powered N9 on T-Mo or AT&T (I'm not a fan of CDMA).

    A lot of people dont really know what Nokia is about so they dismiss them. Like some here though, I've used Nokia's in the past and they are really in a class by themselves. Anyone remember the 8210? Classic handset. Nokia knows how to design and also present phones. Check out these images from zdnet and tell me something like this running WP7 isnt special. Hands-on with the Nokia N9 MeeGo device | ZDNet. Then you think this is just the start and Nokia will be taking the gloves off in 2012, and IMO they are truly the only OEM that matters for WP7.

    I bet no US carrier gets any new device in 2011. US carriers are pathetic.

    Buckeyeballer that's hard to believe. My battery went out the other day and the guy at Verizon went to the back and got one for me. If they have batteries they should have phones. They must have wanted you to get an android.

    Go in to all the verizon stores and ask about windows phones. Fill out comment cards asking for windows phones also. If all windows phone users on verizon and other carriers start doing so, they will start to get the idea.

    Nokia Nokia Nokia, I can't wait to see them fall flat on their butts. The influx of cell phones have really slowed down AT&T data speeds. I hope they fix this problem, or I'm moving to sprint. I hate to do this, because AT&T seems to be the only carrier dedicated to WP7.

    I watch Hulu+ and I only see Droid commercials. No iPhone, no WP7. Weird. I read that MSFT spends $926 million on marketing in 2010.

    I only see droid adds anywhere. And MS cant figure out how droid has become #2 in such a short time? Also, Symbian was by far the world leader a few years ago but they have taken a dive as well. Apple does not need to advertise, they have plenty of pundits in every corner of the globe. Android is catching up to them in that aspect. The most fluid systems like RIM and WP7 and webOS are not advertising and their shares are dropping fast. Less than 5 years ago if you had a smartphone you had a BB. There was basically no other significant choices. Now, BB is almost insignificant. Amazing how fast the market shifts in technology fields.

    If I wasnt a little geeky I would not even know what WP7 UI looked like. It is so much better looking than any other mobile OS in my mind and they just need to get it in front of the population.

    Yeah, Moto has a nice new commercial for their new Droid Razr line up, and it's pretty much non stop Android ads all day. But MS is going to get started Sunday.

    Nokia is pumping in 20 m pounds and Samsung 8 million pounds into upcoming WP adds also MS is starting on an expansive ad campaign touting the convergence/interoperability of all their products in their "ecosystem" including windows 8 etc.

    This is a great idea. Also have in mind that since Microsofts vision on advertising is 'we don't care, its the carriers and OEMs problem to advertise if they want to sell phones' it's great to show the carriers that there is some demand.
