    Windows Phone 7 is missing too many essential features to even consider it.

    You can’t install a custom ringtone. There is no “missing calls” list (just a long list of all calls unsorted). The calendar can’t be switched to weekly view. It can’t use a front facing camera, and apps can’t record video.

    Don’t go near Windows Phone 7 until Microsoft has fixed it and restored the missing essential features (which I think will take Microsoft at least a year to fix).
