I am doing the social media review program for the Windows Phone 7. I will be writing a few posts here over the next two weeks and they will be tagged with #telstrawp7.
There was a lot of discussion on twitter about the #telstradesire review and how people were selling their souls to the corporate machine for a free phone. Please feel free to think that if you want, and please unfollow for two weeks if you don’t want to see the tweets and posts. But please come back by December 11, after this is over, as that’s my birthday :).
I start this review from a position of negativity. I have not heard good things about the WP7, and I don’t particularly like the boxy look of the front screen and the colour range available on the home screen is not great. I’m very interested in seeing if I will love this phone as much as I do the Android HTC Desire. I’m not looking for it to be an iPhone killer, just a comparison with Android, because I don’t think WP7 (or even Android) can compete with the iPhone, they are different markets.
It will also be a good comparison with trying out the Telstra network compared to Vodafone after the last few months of shocking data connections and speeds on Vodafone.
So I hope you will enjoy my posts over the next two weeks. See them at http://jodiem.amplify.com/category/telstrawp7/
