    So I had the Evo when it launched, traded it for the shift and Android is still meh to me. I tried my hardest to see what everyone else saw with it but it was very boring to me. I rooted it, and stuff but ti still had its problems and was just plain boring. So I figured heh, why not and got the Arrive for sprint. As soon as I turned it on wow! I love the layout, all of the animations. The silky smooth transitions from anywhere is truly amazing. People complain about the browser, meh. How many settings do you really need. The only thing about the browser is when you zoom out it takes a little while to focus back but not a big deal. I like all the hubs and how the backgrounds change makes it fresh and new every time. The keyboard is amazing I barely even use the hardware one.

    I'm in the same boat, this is probably more exciting than the first time I used iOS or Android.

    glad you're enjoying your experience. wp7 is fresh and i definitely love the screen on my focus. quite a few apps that are on multiple platforms seem to look a lot nice on wp7. all wp7 needs is the mango update and we'll be set.

    the IE browser is probly the best mobile browser I've used. it displays all the sites I goto correctly and it does not redirect to the mobile version like the Android and iOS default browsers do .

    People tend to like Android because it's hacker friendly, a complete OS, and it's very powerful. I didn't like it because it was sorta unorganized. It reminds me of WM 6.X, but much smoother.

    Safari Mobile > IE mobile as of right now. The browser on Android was pretty crappy. All in all, I think WP7 is the second best OS behind iOS. But hopefully that'll change by the end of the year, and WP7 will be on top.

    how en chingos is safari mobile better than IE Mobile? maybe the version if IE in 6.5 and 6.1 but not this one. and it certainly won't be once we get IE9 which is currently being billed as the best desktop browser.

    I've used both Safari Mobile and IE on WP7, and agree that Safari Mobile is definitely better and faster. It's not much of a contest, IMO. The next version of IE should be more competitive.

    It's faster, more stable and displays pretty much all pages correctly. Can't really compare something that has yet to be released to something that's being used currently. Flash is a minus with the iPHone, but the same can be said with WP7 IE. As of today, Safari handly beats WP7 IE.

    IE Mobile 7 is "ok," but not the best. The Mozilla-based browser in my Nokia N900 is almost as fast as IE Mobile 7 and that's w/ an N900 running at 600MHz. It also scored very high on the Acid3 test, whereas IE Mobile 7 fails miserably.

    :) no, and I'd place roughly a million on it never, ever, ever becoming available as it's Apple's own browser and I can't see them developing apps for a competing platform.

    I seem to remember reading that either the current state of the SDK, or some Marketplace rule, prevented third party browsers from existing on WP7, but I cannot remember where it was

    still haven't said exactly how it was better. when I used it on my nephews iPod touch I kept getting redirected to mobile sites and there isn't a way to fix it like on wp7 IE which has yet to redirect me. I haven't encountered a site that wouldn't display properly either despite the low acid3 test score which hardly means anything.

    Nope, and no immediate plans for it to be either, all you'll find in the Marketplace are browser extensions, whereby someone has put their own skin over a WebBrowser control, the control is still utilising the phone's Internet Explorer & rendering engine
