6 weeks in, my #windowsphone update

It is about 6 weeks and here is my update on my windows phone.

Two most common questions/gaps first: have not missed multitasking yet
because of most of the apps being able to tombstone while inactive,
and have missed copy/paste once when I wanted to tweet a link.

Having said that, I am really happy with the rate at which apps are
being added, and am hopeful that the bigger missing properties like
ESPN and Amazon will come soon with their version of the WP7 apps.

In the past ten days, I have walked through this phone with about 20
people who had never seen a Windows Phone before, some of whom had
heard about it, and some of whom are already heavy Blackberry users.
It was unanimous that the phone rocks. All of them were impressed with
the Focus’ screen, and how snappy the phone was. Not too many “got”
Metro but all of them appreciated the aggregation (hubs) idea and how
Facebook is deeply integrated into the phone.

Cherry on top was the Zune Pass, unlimited, on-demand streaming of music.

Here is a list of the apps I have on the phone as of today:
