While Android phones are starting to enter carriers' lineups, most of the new phones launched at the recent CTIA wireless telecommunications trade show ran Windows Mobile 6.5.

Yikes what a saturated, frighteningly competitive market.  I'll bet a big part of the mobile/wireless market churn is due to the volatility of these devices.  Sure some are more durable than others but the lifespan will never match protected hardware that lives indoors with climate control 

Oh yeah, it's been a while but doesn't Win Mobile totally suck?  Managing an exchange-based corporate environment with Win Mob was a scream.

Am I the only one who doesn't get excited about handsets anymore? I think after iPhone it's kinda like "ok, cool, I wonder why I don't care". Funny question is that what needs to happen that I change away from iPhone Cheesy It simply everything I want right now, weird feeling.

WinMo does suck, and suck out loud at that. Android will rock faces compared to it. It should just die a peaceful, you immediate death.

7 is getting good press.

Again, i think MS could DESTROY the other players, and at least knock back apple, IF and ONLY IF, they make it lightweight, with a boatload of hooks and APIs, create interface standards, and have a good/solid IDE.
They can do all those things, as long as they throw all the suits in the shark tank.

Nope.  Other than general IT intrigue, I don't even like them.  Annoying re-channeling of your brain from moment to moment IMO.  I'm an LG Net-10 for basic calls and Skype for everything else guy these days.  I've never been happier with my cellphone life - no bills, no contracts, no evil Grin

It's shockingly low-tech I know.  But I spend so much time on high-powered technology that during the few hours I'm away from it, all I really want is a cellphone.  $2.99 a month unlimited US/Canada on Skype and about $30 bucks a month for my cellphone life-tether Smiley

Leave it to the corporations to keep bad business/technologies afloat through massive purchasing agreements.  The iPhone has done amazingly well considering its AT&T lock-in and comparably slow corporate adoption.  Blackberry sucked for so many years and dominated the market largely due to the support of businesses.  Their devices are ok now (better than WinMob IMO) but still very breakable compared to iPhones.
