    For me, it's the Samsung Focus. Best AT&T phone and November 8th release date sealed it for me.

    3 hours of talk time kinda makes me nervous on the Focus. What are these mfgrs thinking when they spec the battery for their smartphones?

    Wish there was some kind of a release date for the Dell Venue Pro. Assuming the Dell product is coming months later....... I will probably jump in with the Samsung Focus as soon as it is available.

    Not sure of the date, but it's not going to be available at retail. I'm guessing you'll have to buy from DELL or order from T-Mobile direct. I like HTC's phones in general, but I'm not a big horizontal QWERTY fan. It looks like the HTC HD7 is the best of the HTC phones.

    As I'm on AT&T, I'll probably get the Samsung Focus. The other 2 AT&T WP7 phones slide out, which adds to the bulkiness. Plus, the Focus seems to be the only one with a front facing camera. It's also the thinnest WP7 phone.

    I like having Office on my smartphone and HTC HD7 is what I'm going to buy. Do I like it a lot? No. Still uses Snapdragon 1, just like the HD2 and therefore can't get HSPA+ from T-Mobile and I suspect that stoopid antenna is still in the bottom of the phone, like the HD2 which means dropped calls, but overall, an improvement. Perhaps I should wait for a new processor and get better speed, but I like what's I heard overall.

    I don't think WP7 really needs anything more than a 1GHz CPU. It seems much more lightweight compared to iOS and Android.

    I wish the HTC HD7 did not have the slide out QWERTY. I really like the look of this phone, although I'm not sure how I feed about the new breed of larger phones in the vein of the Droid X, etc.

    besweeet,

    It's not WP7 that I'm worried about, it's T-Mobile. You need the 2GHz CPU to handle HSPA+ there.

    Not a lot of buzz around Mozart, not sure why. I also like a non-QWERTY, non-monster phone. Browsed Best Buy last night and was checking out the Droid X. Too big for my taste.

    it's either the Samsung Omnia 7, LG Optimus 7 or HTC Trophy. Which ever comes first to our shores.

    I just read yesterday that the specifications were updated. Now shows over 6 hours of talk time for the Focus.

    I am most likely getting the Focus. Just wish it had DLNA on it like the LG phones. But that is probably something they could add later.

    I'm leaning towards the Samsung Focus, but I need to put my hands on it. The HTC Surround is my other option. The larger screen and better screen on the Samsung is making me lean that direction. I'll have to have a look and see how much difference that really makes to me.

    The whole surround sound speaker thing freaks me out a little. Too much emphasis on a feature that's not real important to me.

    Same for me..but those 2 are the best looking of the 3 AT&T phones. I will NOT be changing carriers, so those are my choices.
