    And at the end of the day, it's all about choice. What works for one, might not work for someone else.
    I love my HTC Trophy, and if I were do it all over again. I would choose Windows over IOS, and that's not mine is better than yours attitude. It's what works for me. :)

    Yes, but no phone stays "out of the box". The apps make the difference.

    Now if we are just talking out of the box experience then i'd say the debate is more between android and WP7. But really just different feature sets and I like them both. My needs for the "out of the box" experience do align more closely with WP7. For a built in integrated experience that even extends to 3rd party i'd pick android. For sheer app variety and selection then I would pick ios. They all have something I like.
    You still have to be able to make the distinction, blanket statements on functionality do not really work. And some people are not going to go looking for apps or even want to and will stay with that OOB experience and WP7 has a lead here. There is a lot of value in the OOB experience of WP7 that is not present in ios or android and that can be a deciding factor for some people and shouldnt be swept aside under the typical "how many apps does the platform have" argument.

    All the apps on ios will not make up for the functionality coming with Xbox/WP7 integration, for some that is enough to proclaim WP7 the best OS in the universe. An early example: http://forums.windowscentral.com/mar...mes/181978.htm. So just because ios has a certain amount of apps doesnt discount WP7's added functionality when it comes to apps that bring unique functionality to WP7 itself. Statements that WP7 is no match for ios in functionality based on apps are not valid, IMO.

    The new iOS 5 lock screen is interesting. It almost looks like they took some cues from WP7.

    Ok, im taking charge here and putting this baby to bed once and for all. Here is the DEFINITIVE answer on this whole thing:
    WP, IOS and Android don't suck, YOU PEOPLE DO! ;-)
    Hah! How about them apples, or Mangos, etc.

    that's a joke people lest yee think otherwise.

    How about this:
    WP, the OS
    Apple, apps
    Android, um, wait, I know there's something, yeah, sheer volume of handsets. You also get really good at taking your battery out.

    Now can we stop lamenting/debating this and go back to talking about religion and politics?

    Although I would be partial to daring someone to tell me why DC Comics doesn't have better characters than Marvel.

    Snookie sucks too btw...

    That says Nov 25th 2010 on the screen, I doubt that is the new lock screen for iOS5.

    Uh, how many DC comic movies have been made? Yeah, if DC was better they would have more movies. They have what Superman, and Batman? What other movies from DC.

    That's one of the lockscreens you can install if you jailbreak. I know, because I used to have it on my iPhone :)

    Batman (4, the Shumacher trash doesnt count, although he did recently apologize for Batman Forever. he also said WB kept him from making a Nolan-esque Dark Knight movie, right.)
    Batman the Animated Series: Mask of the Phantasm was awesome and got a theatrical release
    Green Lantern, decent. Not great, but nowhere near as horrible as it was said to be

    Hands down the biggest DC cinematic contributions are what is coming out of the DCAU. Absolutely killer animated features, and I think they are almost at 10 with more on the way.

    The new Batman Year One movie looks awesome. Yeah, now what????? :-p

    not as neat as slightly pressing down the camera button to focus if auto focus doesn't kick in.

    Funny you should mention that, I was taking a picture today and I got that little information bubble about this mid photo. Hadn't seen it before, thought it was a pretty cool idea.

    Show het how easy it is to connect with her friends without having to use 1000 apps. Shell like that. Much easier than iPhone. Plus, its just cool to not have a phone "because everyone else has one."

    If you've got one let her play with it and show her what it can do. That's probably the best way. Facebook and twitter integration, local scout, bing vision, multitasking, show all that cool stuff off!

    lol only if I could show her one, i've been wanting to get one but has been holding out for searay (probably next year...), but in light of the event => phone gift if you make two apps that MS deem worthy, i started making them and hoping they would like my apps and give me searay :P (i think it was a news from a few weeks ago)

    this is what i don't understand about girls, they plug their ear and look at the other way whenever i bring her into a cell store that actually had a wp7 running, i played with it and likes it, and the girls (including my sis) i bring in just goes into day dreaming mode while i show them the stuff =..=

    now pray for my app to be a success so i can smudge the gift in their faces lol :P

    Sad how often this battle comes up. Its like mac vs PC, coke vs pepsi, xbox vs PS3. They all targeted specific groups and tailored their designs to that target group. All will grab some from groups just outside their target market as well. You can tell the difference between the target group and the almost target group. The target group dismisses any shortcoming while the almost group complains about them. Apples target was very concerned with appearance and style. Everything else was secondary. Well, after grabbing their target group they probably started hearing all the shortcomings of their os in comparisons. So they knew what to improve to grab their almost group.
    Windows has done the same thing. Pretty obvious that their OS are completely different in their target audience. iOS is more about apps and wp7 is much more about what the phone allows you to do and how efficiently you can do it. To do the same thing on the iphone that the people hub does, I would have to have a bunch of apps, and have an iphone4 at least to be able to jump between them. Any one want to run a comparison? Get a FB update from a friend, then email or SMS a comment about that update to another friend. When that friend responds then post that comment to your FB friends wall.

    You cant please anyone all the time, but you can please someone sometimes.
    Pretty much. This forum is starting to turn into a place where people feel the need to get some reasurrance of why they chose the phone they have and that's something I wanted to get away from on the other forum I post on. Be happy with what you got and STOP COMPARING. My God I get so tired of hearing the ENDLESS bickering and whining and bragging. So WHAT? Be happy with what you got or put an end to your misery by purchasing something that works for you
