    Got me a HTC HD7, I looked at the Omnia 7 and imo the SuperAMOLED screen wasn't worth the trade off of half the storage and smaller screen and a worse looking handset imo.
    How is it?

    The sad part is that the CDMA carriers, that are gonna get these phones, isn"t being released yet, well, at least for the U.S. market.

    Can't wait to get one :D:
    CDMA is for homosexuals.
    You should feel bad for using CDMA.

    because when the iPhone launched, having apps at launch wasn't the standard, the app revolution didn't really even start until iPhone OS 2.0.

    still; looking forward to seeing how successful this is and if it'll be worth Microsoft's money (and mine). I still have how repetitive the UI is, and how every single app for WP7 i've seen looks exactly the same
    What's wrong with consistency?

    Argh. It entirely depends on how much it will pick up in terms of apps. Please, devs, develop!

    UI wise..as in, every single app has the Metro UI (which is okay, sometimes..) but I haven't seen a single app without it. White text on a black bg (and, surprise! sometimes a red bg!), cutoff text, etc..it's gonna get boring really quickly.
    I'm actually sort of surprised you're saying this. Again, consistency in an interface is a good thing. Adhering to good useability principles and not breaking consistency is more important than an interface getting 'boring'.

    also,

    I wish the Windows community would make their UIs consistent like the Mac community.

    I think it's a good thing to prioritize functionality and originality over tradition.

    Oh hell yes, the HD7 has a SD card slot and you can change the memory, it just requires a couple screws out:



    Linky

    I'm gonna get a 32GB card and do this to mine.

    My contract is up for renewal on Sunday thank god. Getting an Omnia 7, the HD7 is nice but would much rather have the S-AMOLED after temporarily having one then going back to not having one, I miss it too much. Spent the last few hours sorting out my Zune library, neatening it up getting ready to sync it!

    Been looking through apps, practically everything I use is there so I am very happy.

    You should post a video of you using it and perhaps showing off how Facepunch behaves on it. I'd watch. :D

    damn the UI does look nice. Shame these are so ungodly expensive to me, I would love to replace my aging, crashing 3g with one of these, the HD7 does look very nice. But I can't afford anything like that.

    Edited:

    I partially retract that statement. 380 for the HD7 on pay & Go is not bad at all. Still can't afford it mind you

    YAY! Placed my upgrade order today. There is practically no stock around for the Omnia 7 at the moment, they all had to be sent back to Samsung as the barcodes on the boxes were incorrect and couldn't be input into the system :\.

    But there should be new stock arriving this week, and it will get sent out to me! Woo! Would anyone be interested in a mini review?

    I would!

    I wish Microsoft would work on a full blown Zune client for Mac, I despise Itunes even if it is- a good bit better than the version I used a few years ago. I really don't want to trade my Zune HD for an Ipod touch, such a downgrade as I love music and don't care much for apps. Spotify app only does 160kbps, terrible in my audiophile opinion.

    How are you new WP7 owners finding the Zune software? a charm I'm guessing?

    Yep, although I've been using it for ages, I much prefer it to boring old iTunes.

    I'm thinking of returning my HD7 and getting a Omnia 7 instead. I've got the reset bug and the hard buttons on the HD7 are so bloody annoying. I've still got 5 days to return it and get a full refund, I might see if I can take a look at a Omnia 7 IRL and maybe swap.

    Getting AMOLED in exchange for losing 0.3" is totally worth it.

    I also found out the Omnia has built in NAND memory rather than just sticking a SD card in like HTC andd apparenty it loads apps and games around 3X faster! Loosing 8GB but gaining a faster better looking and better screened device is worth the trade off me thinks.

    Too bad there's no support for sockets in third party applications, that keyboard looks like it would be perfect for SSH or IRC.

    Milky, you're one of those people who make me hate life because I'm just not as lucky.

    But maybe you're just hard working. And your parents did not buy you that.

    Did they?

    After I returned my HD7 I walked in the 3 store opposite on the off chance and they had 1 left

    The guy in the store said the demand has been crazy, they get people going in all the time asking if they have any.
    As I was signing my new contract some Chinese dude came in as asked if they had any Omnia 7's left after I bought the last one, and I was all like :smug:
