@cbae: +1

I already have a ton of installed apps on my WP7 that I really don't use and will probably remove -- why would I need thousands more pieces of software that I don't need? Having trawled through both the WP7 marketplace and the iPhone/pad marketplace, there aren't many apps what I feel I want or need in either, so both markets serve my needs and I could go with either phone -- I went WP7 because I'm a .NET developer and I wanted a new .NET platform to play with.
