More phones, more fun

There were rumors on the Internets that if you recently bought a Samsung Focus from AT&T, that you could go back and get their buy-one-get-one deal. Seeing as how Diana has had two hand-me-down iPhones now, I figured I'd check it out. And what do you know, I brought her home her very own, all shiny and stuff. So now we're both Windows Phone users.

Now that I've had a couple of weeks with it, I'm generally pleased with it, but there are a lot of little polish issues that I hope they resolve in the often rumored January update (I honestly don't know if that's real or not). The comparison to iPhone, after having one three and a half years, is impossible not to make. I feel like the move is kind of lateral at the moment, with the one really obvious plus being that I can write apps for this one pretty easily.

I still want to write an end-to-end review soon, including the developer experience. It's generally positive, and certainly I want to see my employer do well here. Late to the party or not, I really feel like the direction is right, even if it's not perfect today. I think it competes exceptionally well with iOS and Android, and I can't wait to see more models for AT&T and the other carriers.
