    That's funny. I was also one of those people seating around Microsoft looking down on my phone however not to check messages, tweeter or facebook but because I had never had WP7 before.

    @Ian2: As cool as the ads are, I never got the marketing message.

    I got my WP7 phone on Monday and I have to say that I have spent a lot of time since then staring at it like Gollum and his ring. Might be the novelty; it's my first smartphone.

    I get the marketing message and you have to understand that developers have a different relationship to technology than most, especially if they plan to develop for this piece of technology! Wink  Besides, when you just got a new gadget your usage isn't going to be typical, heh.

    @Dr Herbie:Grrr.... I have to wait until the 8th. The precious calls to us. I've got non-binding orders in at two AT&T stores and a couple of authorized resellers. Whoever can produce a phone first gets all my business for the next couple of years. We wants it.
