It is really going to depend on what features you want such as a physical keyboard.

Re: Best Windows 7 phone

Can't blame you for wanting to switch from BB! As I see it, all the WP7 devices are pretty good deals for what they cost relative to other new smartphones. So it comes down to what the demonlord said: Features you want

Here's a place where you can look at all WP7 devices available in USA:

Re: Best Windows 7 phone

The other major consideration is your choices. What phones does your carrier offer and which phones do your carrier's competition offer and are you willing to switch carriers.
Good luck bro.

Re: Best Windows 7 phone

Welcome to PPCGeeks! We're glad to see you coming over to the Windows platform, but like the others have said, it's going to be down to the fact of what you like in a cellular device. Outstanding screen? Physical Keyboard? Great Sound? Screen Size? Carrier Preference? All of these will factor in.

Re: Best Windows 7 phone

i too am interested in this...im debating between the hd7 and 7 pro...i think i will need a physical keyboard but if other specs outweigh a physical keyboard i dont mind parting with one...screen size is a factor, i dont want something thats nice to watch videos from but nothing huge like the evo (yes i know the hd7 but like the keyboard issue i dont mind going big if i am able to get use it it)

Re: Best Windows 7 phone

I'm rocking a Samsung Focus. The Samoled screen is fantastic.

I thought no keyboard would be an issue on my hd7 and it really wasn't. Swype was nice to have and made the transition easier.
For the hd7, no swype, but the keyboard is much better than the stock one on the hd2 and esp. in landscape for banging out texts, it works well enough. It isn't a hardware KB by any stretch but I don't think I could go back to a fat phone. Word correction works very well on the wp7 as well.
