The phone is here as well as the jury verdict. It is a good device.
I just got the new phone this week, and here are the 10 things I like about it:
Overall, this is a very good device that IMHO is a good alternative to Android and iPhone. I wish MS had a better business model to generate revenue from this business.
I'm also a really big fan of my Focus. And everyone I show it too is really impressed. The general reaction is, wow, thats much better than the iPhone! I tend to agree.
I think all the UX decisions made here were pretty excellent. And the phone has (apart from some blips in the marketplace) really really solid performance compared to most Android phones.
Lovin my Samsung Focus. Long time Android user and I have to honest and say MS hit the sweet spot this time. After using the Nexus One, Xperia X10, Galaxy S Captivate then the Samsung Focus...I think it will be a long time before I switch back to android. Everything with the Focus is just so fast and smooth, its a awesome experience. As of now, I like it more than Android. As for Iphone..that was killed by Android a long time ago.
