I write apps. Microsoft made it hard to write publish apps and even though I have Windows Mobile apps, WP7 failed me in many ways (such as access to SPP in the apps!)
I went with the droid and am now porting the apps.
Ballmer went from developers to consumers and lost me along the way.
Not sure where to really post this since I'm asking about two phones. If I go to the WP7 forum, I'm more than likely going to get their point of view; same for Android. Sooo...here I be.
Okay, if you didn't get the gist from the title, here goes:
Sad day. Apparently those in the know say there won't be a Palm, er, HP webOS phone on Sprint in the near future. My contract is up very soon. I love my Pre and the whole webOS system. Sprint rocks hard, so I'm not leaving. Obviously I need an upgrade to something else since webOS is out of the equation. Sigh. I figure if I go Android, the "pure" experience al-a the Nexus would be the way to go, I think. Then again, it'd be poetic to latch on to the first CDMA WP7 phone as I did with the first Pre. Of course other Sprint available phones could be options also, but I think, think, these two could be awesome phones. Blackberry rocks but my GF is going to be doing the new Bold Touch route when and/or if that comes to Sprint so I'm looking to expand our view of OSs.
So here I am in round one of my next phone fight: WP7 Arrive vs. Android Nexus-S! Please feel to help out and discuss everything from the OS to capabilities and everything inbetween. Help! And, thanks!
Oh, and on the very immediate surface, here's my first, um, point(s): My Pre is great but the accessories, like the protective case, make it such an overall crappy experience becasue they always break, always. I figure the Arrive would have that same problem since it's a slide-out also. The Nexus-S on the other hand is solid, thus, I assume, it'd be easier to protect for overall better satisfaction. The Arrive is also newer than the Nexus-S. I'm done now.
Please talk, discuss, and above all, keep it clean. Let's have a good fight.
