Windows Phone 7 Comparison Chart

Windows Phone 7 Comparison Chart

Microsoft Windows Phone 7 devices are officially on sale in the United States and elsewhere.  Samsung, LG, HTC, and even Dell have jumped in and created phones for all of the major carriers, but with all of the choices available it brings up an important question.  That is, if you’re going to get a Windows Phone 7, which one should I get?

Overall there aren’t a lot of differences between the Windows phone 7 devices.  What I have noticed is they seem close to par with the iPhone 4 and latest Android phones, but they still lack copy/paste, flash, and multitasking.  True, you might already have a Windows Phone 6.5 device that can be upgraded and in that case it might be best to stick with you got.  However, if you are new to or interested in Windows Phone 7 than below is a comparative chart that focuses in on the new phones and could be rather useful.
