The first Windows Phone 7 is coming to Rogers in the form of a Samsung Focus smartphone. Think of it as the Samsung Galaxy S Android smartphone but infused with Windows Phone 7’s goodness along with some minor hardware changes.
I like the fact that it has a 4″ touchscreen and 512MB of RAM with Samsung’s 1GHz processor. That’s a lot to drool for and hours spent day dreaming about.
That being said, I am up for a device upgrade on Rogers and the arrival of the Samsung Focus on Rogers is imminent. Should I upgrade to the first Windows Phone 7 to land in Canada or pick another Android smartphone? Of course both platforms have their pros and cons and I can’t hide the fact that Windows Phone 7 has more cons than pros compared to Android. But still, there is something attractive about Windows Phone 7 that acts as a serious gravitational pull towards it.
It’s going to be a hard decision.
