Re: Is there any way to use WM programs on the WP7

↑Ditto
Despite the features which arent currently present, I find the Arrive to be a substantial upgrade over the TP2. I'm actually glad it isnt a 4G phone either; saves me some moolah

Re: Is there any way to use WM programs on the WP7

Thanks all for your advice. It's been useful in my research to whether I convert to Droid. I too have been a Windows mobile user for years & converted to the PDA/Phone with the first Windows Treo (boy has the market changed since then).

Has WP7 gone away with the stylus? If so, that's going to be one thing I'll really have to get used to. I truly rely on that and one reason I hadn't converted.

Re: Is there any way to use WM programs on the WP7

Yeah, it's totally touch, although I have seen a few stylus' for sale that supposedly are compatible with the touch screen. I haven't truied them yet but may i the future. I've got large fingers so I always have to stay toward the fold out keyboard for my phones since I cannot type worth a darn on the screen keyboards.

Darn my fat fingers.

u won't regret converting to wp7 especially since the mango beta is now out in the wild, almost all the functionality from WM has been restored and drastically improved

I agree, def don't need a stylus. I have tried a boxwave capacitive "pen" stylus a buddy has. Works well if you have to have one.
