Samsung GT-i8700 running Windows Phone 7 leaks out


  • Greg

    I’m super-skeptical of Windows Phone 7 right now. On the other hand, I’m not a fan of Apple and recent articles about Android make it look a bit less warm-and-fuzzy than I used to think about 4 months ago.

    Or, I’ll keep waffling and stick to my candybar phone that has served me for years.

    Assuming it’s a good phone, I’d pay the same for it as I would for any other current-generation smartphone: $500 contract-free. Not likely to happen. 😉

      Hi Greg,

      I was wondering if you could please point me to the articles about Android that are making you less warm-and-fuzzy.

    Beautiful, but I’m still not convinced about WP7. Seems like something you need to try first. Still not sold on the “less is more” type of thinking.

    I love the look of WP7… But I’m skeptical that it’ll be out next month. It’ll be interesting if it comes out in the same timeframe as the Rogers Captivate though… If there’s a device with similar tech specs to the Captivate, I may very well be convinced to switch. Especially since developing for WP7 is so easy, in comparison to BB and Android – we could be seeing a lot more WP7 apps in the near future.

    $700 is enough, isn’t it?

    It’s damn beautiful

    Wow, Gizmodo is getting really good at finding unreleased phones!

    Not interested one bit. I don’t want a phone that crashes.

    I think the boxed UI look will get old pretty fast. I like changing themes as my interests change, and I don’t see yet how WP7 can be customized efficiently for the information I want to see. Maybe it will surprise me.

    At the end of the day, it’s still Windows.

      It’s still Microsoft. But there isn’t a Windows bone in that phone that I can see.

    Made the jump to android after seeing the direction WM7. IMHO it will be a great device for people who like social sites and are committed to MS products like the Zune and especially xbox (that’s not me). I think this will really force blackberry to up their game for the NA market.

    I don’t see the appeal for the big blocks (or small blocks on iPhone either.
