    Which goes to show you that marketing does matter. Nexus One was in every way superior in software and with similar hardware to the new WIndows Phones.

    I played with this in the store today and I think only hardcore WinMo folks and bloggers would buy this phone it feels like its competing against the Iphone 3GS or G1. I felt handicapped by not being able to multitask or receive notification. I dont think the interface is that great either. With my D1 I can always ROM and theme but Phone 7 I can only change the colors....

    Well, to be fair, the Nexus wasn't sold in stores. People want to play with a phone in-store before buying.

    The Nexus One was not carrier subsidized, so it was also at least $300 more than the WinMo 7 phones that are now being sold.

    Apparently, the Win7 phones are not selling very well and are now free.

    Exactly. What kind of comparison is that?

    I really like my Vibrant. But if there is one phone that could make me switch in would be Windows Phone7. I have a Zune and really like the software. Gave away my Ipod after I got it. That said, I have not looked at the Windows phone yet to give it a fair evaluation. If it is as intuitive and smooth as my Zune HD it is might be very good.

    Haven't kept up with the news, but did it outsell the original Droid? Seems like that would be a more relevant comparison.

    Win7 fail. I think the 7 ui is the worst looking thing to hit smart phones in a long time. Hell apple looks better android looks and functions better so I highly doubt it is a competitor. I have converted alot of people to android and to my pleasure they all despise the winmo7 phones. 7 vs nexus is all about marketing not the phone itself.

    A subsidized phone sold in stores... vs an unsubsidized phone not available in stores. Worst... comparison...ever. Should've compared it to the G1 since they were both first gen devices.

    The Nexus was never ment to be a Blockbuster phone! It was ment to tell companies (HTC, Moto, Samsung, and LG) to stop making Android phones that are underpowered. The Nexus One is the standard. If the Nexus one was never made, WP7's Standard of 1Ghz would never have been made. And how many different phones were there on Day 1 for Windows. Please the amount of money spent on Marketing from Windows offset those sales. And Google, HTC, and TMo got all the money from the Nexus. Microsoft, HTC, Samsung, LG, and Dell, plus At&t and TMO, are all splitting that profits. 1 phone split 3 ways or 6 phones split 15 different ways. And no money spent on Marketing besides YouTube videos for the Nexus 1.
