As an owner of an iPhone 4 (running the iOS 5 beta) and Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, I can say they are both excellent devices with thier own strong points... so let's leave these statements to people who actually own devices...
Why would i spend money on either of those crappy devices? Since when does one have to own something to talk about it? Do i need to smoke crack cocaine to say it is bad? Yes, i saw the Zune in a store and played with it. It was a complete joke....feeble attempt to clone the iPod. I also read tons of reviews. You know, those things that help one decide what things are good and bad? And not reviews from the Windows fanboy sites either.
Heck just take a look at that horrid UI on Windows Phone...text scrolling off the screen to the right...those fugly "tiles". Totally unusable and horribly ugly. Whoever designed the Metro look should have been fired a long time ago. It failed on the Zune and now they are putting it everywhere. I guess it makes sense if you work at Microsoft.
Lots of new posters defending Microsoft anymore. Guess the marketing droids are astroturfing in full force these days.
