It's a pretty good choice, but keep in mind, in general WM requires a fair amount of modifications to get things right. For example, touch screen response on my Tilt (or even the newer Fuze) is still nowhere near what you get out of the box w/ an iPhone. It's a trade off I suppose, since the WM devices are more customizable with the selection of alternate ROMs. YMMV.
