Windows Phone 7 also brings together the things you use most on your phone in six Hubs: People, Pictures, Office, Games, Music + Video, and Marketplace. Grouping them in Hubs like this lets you get to what you need, quicker, because you don't have to jump from apps to the web to contact lists.

SharePoint Workspace Mobile makes it easier to collaborate with your coworkers when you're out and about.

Marketplace: Find Something New Everyday
Personalizing your phone just got quicker, more convenient with the Marketplace Hub, where you can discover and download apps, games, music, videos, and more.

(POTENTIAL W7Phone buyer...this is a great phone...but, read complete review and read the end for an important issue associated with hooking up to your Outlook account at work...)

Okay - so, I've been jonesing for a new phone for work. Have Blackberry Tour(because old company is a Blackberry company). Come to new company where they're "more lenient" on the technology you can have. So - started trying phones (I love Verizon's 30 day satisfaction guarantee). First one: iPhone - sexy in an Anna Kournikova way (no one can debate that Apple has top-notch industrial design) - but, ultimately, an iPhone isn't for a business guy. Cool apps (and alot of them)...but, seriously - most companies use Outlook Exchange and MS Office...and there's the problem: Apple doesn't like to play in the same sandbox. Stable platform, tons of apps, pretty to look at...but won't win Wimbledon - because the integration between business programs (Office, Outlook, etc) isn't there. Scheduling a multiple-person-invite calendar event? Holy... Droid: depending on the review - possibly stable platform...but, seriously - the app integration is all over the place - depends on the platform (verizon, sprint, t-Mobile, etc), the manufacturer, and the app itself. Tons of apps...but, it, too, isn't MS. Blackberry? The only reason it's still alive is because of the Blackberry Enterprise Server which allows monster Enterprise companies to remote-zap the blackberry if you leave the company with Blackberry in hand, and sensitive e-mails/contact information in said Blackberry...but, they are so behind on apps and touchscreen integration it's scary. But, if you want e-mail and calendar and that's it...It's the phone for you. If you want more, and have friend iPhone envy or droid envy...just wait, my friend...

The phone's hardware is good. Since Microsoft dictates fairly high minimum specs for all Windows Phones, you won't find a whole lot of difference between the current batch out there.

That said, there are a few standouts for certain features. The Samsung Focus has the best screen (Super AMOLED), but its build quality isn't great. The HD7 has a massive 4.3" screen, but it's bulky as a result. The HTC 7 Pro has a keyboard, etc.

As far as the Trophy, there isn't anything "special" about it. What makes it a great phone is the combination of Windows Phone 7 and Verizon.

The screen is a nice 3.7" LCD (*not* SLCD), and while the colors are rich and the viewing angles are pretty good, it feels a bit washed out at times - especially off axis.

The body of the Trophy is semi-rubberized, and feels both compact and sturdy. The build quality feels very high. I've already dropped the phone directly onto pavement from about 5 feet in the air. There is a tiny little indent (like if you made it with the tip of a pen) on the rubber back, but otherwise it survived unscathed.

The camera is OK. The auto-stabalization isn't great, resulting in somewhat blurry photos unless you're careful. But the bright side is - pun intended - the flash is very good.

Battery life seems fairly good. Critically, I can get through a full day of normal use (~20 minutes of talking, 30 minutes of web surfing, 10 minutes of app usage, etc) with about 33% charge left. With low usage, it can go a full 48 hours without a charge. In airplane mode, you'll get 10+ days.

The call quality is fantastic. Crystal clear. Reception, thanks to Big Red, is awesome. I briefly had a Samsung Focus on AT&T back in November.

I've been a long time Motorola guy (they are a local company here in Chicago) who was disappointed with his droid. I had no desire for an iPhone, so I thought I'd give this a shot. First, physically, it just feels right. The weight is right, the size is right. It just feels good in your hand. The rubberized back feels good and the camera button and volume rocker are strong enough that they won't be accidentally be pressed. I have not had any issues with reception based on how I hold the phone. Call quality has been good, though admittedly, I almost ways use a Bluetooth headset. The only issue I could find with the physical device is the screen is not the best. It is an lcd, but it should have been a super lcd.

In terms of software, I am very happy with WP7. WP7 is fast and responsive. The tiles allow me to easily find and launch apps without getting lost in a sea of icons. The lock screen is great, with the date and time in big, easy to read lettering. It also has additional information, like your next scheduled appointment and if you have new messages, email, text or voicemail. The best part of message notification system on the start screen is how different types of email have different icons. That way you know if the message is from an account form yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail or exchange. One thing the start screen is missing is temperature from a weather app. The email experience is the best I've seen on a smartphone, much better than stock android or my Galaxy tab, which provide excellent Gmail experiences, but poor experiences for everything else. Office is nice, especially OneNote, which allows the creation of notes through any combination of text, voice and pics and also syncs into the cloud (the internet) at o m.
