  • I need this.

  • goodsammy

    MS has really come back into the mobile OS game with a bang! It has done what it is great at. Offer “utility” more than slick UI.

    Hi, just adding my name to the contest.

  • Gimme phone

  • spencerjordan

    I would enjoy said device of luxorious magnitude for which to purloin apps from a readily available marketplace.

  • If I won the Windows Phone 7, I would stream my favorite movies and shows using the Netflix app, something Android cannot do yet :p

  • sstran

    It looks like a nice phone, could always use a new phone. And you could do more with less…

  • Pair this with a Zune Pass. It will change the way you think about music.

  • Microsoft really stepped up their game here. I love the user interface and their ad campaign!

  • I'm very enamored with the UI. Wish it could be a hotspot though!

  • feffrey

    My odds of winning are around .146 %

  • Yay, a Windows 7 phone! My office switched me to a Mac for a long horrible week last month, so I've discovered this bizarre new affection for Windows.

  • With this phone, it sure would be nice to have fewer items in my purse!

  • Johnal

    This phone would be my new baby jesus.

  • sstran

    this new phone would be my new toy, new tool, new mp3 player new everything πŸ˜€

  • Austin Kirschenmann

    Microsoft seems to be listening to what people are looking for…

  • If I won the Windows Phone 7, I would actually stay connected with my Facebook friends thanks to the integration with the people hub.

  • echezeaux

    This could replace three family members!

  • echezeaux

    This could replace three family members!

  • porschecm2

    I love how people's comments are getting more and more mundane, including this very one…

  • Microsoft gives you 25G of storage on your SkyDrive. Sign me up!

  • blackhand

    Microsoft seems to have put some thought into this one…if I won, I'd look forward to how it intigrates office productivity as well as the social media aspect which is so in vogue right now.

  • this OS looks so fantastic.

  • conedude13

    if i had a windows phone 7, i could RULE THE WORLD!! πŸ˜›

  • tcoolspy

    I would love to have this phone :-). It looks great as does the windows phone 7 platform.

  • k8te

    What carrier will the phone be for?

  • Really liking your blog. My current smartphone is overdue for retirement so this will be a great new one.

  • I'll be straightforward. I want a WP7.

  • Windows phone, yes! It would be great to streamline all the devices in my bag/car into one.

  • I can ditch my laptop and carry files on this!

  • I'd love to win this phone. I've been thinking of getting a new one anyway, and this one would save me so much time. I could do more with less by managing all my social networks and my etsy store all from one place!

  • doing more with less is the trend now days, the one thing that i think that allows people to do more with less is a computer. it allows people to learn about something in an instant where as before people have to go to the library, it allows people to write without a pen or pencil, it allows people to watch tv, movies and just videos in general at a touch of a button, allows people to store memories of a lifetime in one simple device. but with technology advancing as it is a brand new phone that does exactly that would be handy :]

  • Windows phone 7 very cool. Btw, every blog I visit moving to disqus…I guess I should check it out.

  • If I won the Windows Phone 7, I would also buy an Xbox 360 to replace my unit that got the Red Ring of Death. There is going to be some crazy integration between Windows Phone and Xbox Live in the future!

  • marcelsmary

    ?????esrever ni tnemmoc a evael ot tsrif eht ma i kniht i
    (its backwards)
    i am going to be honest here, i just want the phone. i read this blog/site every day. i love this site. i would be ever so excited if i won.

  • feffrey

    So who here watched human target tonight? It was gosh darn good.

  • Johnal

    C'mon WP7!!!! WoOt!

  • sstran

    winning a phone through a contest would definitely be more for less πŸ™‚

  • MagicWuff

    I would absolutely love to have this!

  • 2300+ apps already available for Windows Phone 7

  • I love that grid look. I would be so happy if I won this phone…and my wife would be happy if I “got in and got out” back to her instead of getting sucked in hahaa…

  • I do more with less by dropping my cable and watching TV via Hulu or Netflix.

  • Anonymous

    i can’t wait for WM7!

  • Austin Kirschenmann

    Newegg is a great place to shop, but I'm not looking forward to buying a phone.

  • getinet

    Hulu+ on this thing?

  • conedude13

    i love doing more with what i have available on myself quickly and painlessly!! fingers crossed!!! πŸ˜›

  • Doing more with less sometimes means working on the go. Which is where my laptop and a good smartphone comes in handy. Go windows phone

  • k8te

    I also would like to know if Hulu is supported on Windows Phone 7 devices.

  • porschecm2

    How about Netflix? Is that supported on Phone 7?

  • Yogi

    I stay organized with Microsoft OneNote, which helps me do more with less time.

  • echezeaux

    It'll be amazing to ditch AT&T and get a carrier with coverage!

  • would potentially pay the bail out fee of my current contract to switch.

  • Andy

    I'm a t-mobile user already. I will want to try out Windows Phone 7 for sure!

  • feffrey

    Do the Aliens in Cowboys and Aliens use a win 7 phone?

  • sstran

    post it notes either digital ones or actual ones help me keep organized

  • Yogi

    By using Quick Steps in Microsoft Outlook, I do more and do it quicker.

  • I have tried all the color schemes but I think I like the default blue on black best.

  • Words cannot describe how much I want this miniature technological beast.

  • Austinkir

    I loooove metro! It is such a great original idea.

  • jaxon2580

    thank goodness i already have T-Mobile.

  • jaxon2580

  • Andy

    Happy Friday to all and good luck on winning this!

  • I would like to win this….please!

  • I'd really like to win!

  • Is this up to par with Android phones?

  • k8te

    I wonder how much those Windows Phone 7 certified SD cards will be.

  • This phone would look great on my wife!

  • I'm all about replacing my stone-age phone with a revolutionary one. And I'm sure with it, i'll be doing more in less time. Thanks for the giveaway.

  • Damn, this is a sharp-looking phone. It would look even better in my hand. Here's hoping I win!

  • Thanks for the chance to win a phone millions of times better than my current clunker!

  • Johnal

    I will write a haiku for you if I win! thanks! πŸ˜‰

  • I do a lot of group projects, and I owe it to my coworkers to be reachable. This phone would help me not carry my laptop everywhere in case of an email.

  • porschecm2

    Has anyone cracked the OS to run on other phones yet?

  • I've been wanting one of these since it first came out only a couple of weeks ago.

  • Oh my gosh, I would LOVE to have a Windows Phone 7! My phone barely makes calls, and doesn't do anything else πŸ˜›

  • It would be great to win this phone! To do more with less, my friends have been going to less movies/restaurants and moreto free local art and music fairs. It's fun and less money haha!

  • feffrey

    Oops I almost forgot to comment today, can't do that.

  • sstran

    a new phone would be great especially considering the economy is so bad and I am trying to save up for the holidays πŸ™‚

  • MaureenE

    I will have to check out this phone and read some reviews. I have found that 2010 is the year to do more with less.

  • Calendars are a huge help. And the Outlook Quickstep is a great shortcut tool that helps me quickly create some of my common tasks, appointments, and emails while on the go. The win phone 7 will be a great mobile tool to aid in this

  • voodooaria

    I could really use a new phone as my current cell phone still has a pull out antenna and the only game you can play on it is snake…

  • getinet

    just threw my iphone after dropping a call 4 times.

  • k8te

    I've been reading some reviews of Windows Phone 7 and it's looking good so far.

  • feffrey

    I see unicorns!

  • Johnal

    WP7, won't you be mine? Please?

  • marcelsmary

    another comment to (hopefully) add to my chance of winning.

    this phone is black. of all the colors in the spectrum, it is all of them.

  • jaxon2580

    9 more days!!!!!! pick me pick me pick me!

  • MatthewMiddle

    Would be nice to use and see what all the hub bub is about.

  • Yogi

    I’ll be able to get more done with less by consolidating my devices when I get a Windows Phone.

  • I do more with less by getting devices that have multiple functions, and try to get rid of ones that only do one thing. πŸ™‚

  • Austinkir

    Having a music player, a calendar, social platform, and a phone in one package is doing more with less.

  • getinet

    i love you long time

  • MaureenE

    Having a device that takes the place of several is pretty appealing.

  • I really could use this

  • k8te

    Will the phone be unlocked?

  • sgschm

    I do more for much less by hitting the garage sales and thrift stores for much of the basics, and yep, using coupons and shopping online steals and deals.

  • If the phone is the implied 'less' I'm sure I can figure out a 'more' to throw it's way. I luv WP7

  • Lately, It seems like I've been doing more with less time. Since I'm still in college, I'v been taking all the time I can get to domy readings and assignments, including typing away at my essays on my latop when I'm on the train!

  • feffrey

    hm the number of comments has jumped a lot in the past day, not looking good for me.

  • I do more with less by spending my time wisely with family, friends, and loved ones.

  • echezeaux

    please give me this wonderful gadget!

  • Johnal

    Thanks for offering such a great prize! =)

  • Yogi

    I get more with less by doing comparison shopping using Bing.

  • Windows Phone 7 + Zune Pass + Wireless Sync = WIN

  • echezeaux

    This looks slicker than a wet weiner dog!

  • echezeaux

    This looks slicker than a wet weiner dog!

  • Mmmm, consolidating devices with a smartphone, love it.

  • Mmmm, consolidating devices with a smartphone, love it.

  • k8te

    How's the video playback capabilities of these Windows Phone 7 phones? Does the OS make use of hardware video acceleration?

  • nchusker

    My phone is dying… I would love a free one !

  • Andy

    Holiday season is coming, I hope this will be my surprise gift of the season!

  • I always <3 HTC's hardware, this is a sweet match imo.

  • I really hope I win!

  • conedude13

    i couldn't get to the comments over the weekend!! i hope that doesn't hurt my chances!!

    TEXAS TOAST RULES!! πŸ˜›

  • I'm all about doing more with less by using free tools such as the Google calendar to organize my day, week, month, year…need I go on!!!

  • This will look so nice on my desk!

  • sgschm

    My more for less: Bake family goodies instead of buying storebought. Make extra and freeze for later. Do the same for meals: cook more, freeze extras.

  • techSage

    I do more with less by using tech that saves time rather than wasting it.

  • Austinkir

    Consolidating multiple devises into one is a great help. It's a bit of a hassle to have an mp3 player, a pmp and a phone.

  • getinet

    hello

  • MagicWuff

    Can't wait to see the next generation of my MP3 player! (Zune HD)

  • Since I'm in college I definitely can do more with the money I save from buying used books instead of new ones by searching online sites like eBay or the used book stores in town. It really helps cut costs and sometimes the books have notes in them! It's kinda funny, sometimes helpful, to read the notes people have left in the books!

  • I've slimmed down to one credit card I'm paying off the others.

  • I've wanted one of these from the day I got my Zune HD at launch

  • sstran

    I am loving aluminum foil as an insulation material these days, helps me shape cakes, and keep things warm πŸ™‚

  • porschecm2

    Hopefully the Phone 7 can help break Apple's near strangle-hold on high-end non-business smartphones.

  • That is one spiffy new gadget, indeed.

  • It's nice to see that Apple is now offering free phone location service in response to Microsoft. Competition is good!

  • It's nice to see that Apple is now offering free phone location service in response to Microsoft. Competition is good!

  • It's nice to see that Apple is now offering free phone location service in response to Microsoft. Competition is good!

  • echezeaux

    This is prettier than my ex wife, that's for sure!

  • What a perfect gift for the holidays…thanks OhGizmo! I wish people commented on your other entries as much as this one; comments are half the fun of a site like this.

  • conedude13

    OMG! ITS TACO TUESDAY!! and i would TOTALLY tweet that from this phone if i had it!! πŸ˜›

  • k8te

    I read that the browser for Windows Phone 7 is pretty good.

  • I have never owned any Windows OS based smartphone, and I would love to own one!

  • Oooh, shiny Windows 7 phone, sooo pretttyyyyyyy

  • If only I could do more, with SOMETHING!

  • I do more with less by using awesome phone apps. There are many useful, fun, and creative apps out there that help make life a little bit easier to manage.

  • I could do more with less by using my phone for everything, as opposed to a phone and a computer and having to wait until I got home to do anything internet-based. This would save me tons of time which I could then spend with my family.

  • If I won the Windows Phone 7, I would visit ohgizmo more often with a mobile web browser that actually works (WM6.5 not so much). πŸ™‚

  • Andy

    I will visit t-mobile store during this weekend. Eager to see how this phone stacks against Android.

  • sgschm

    Doing more with less means creating a tight budget and sticking to it, avoiding impulse buys, and saving for rainy days. Peace of mind generates productivity.

  • I could really go for a corndog right now.

  • make ME the winner! you know you want to!

  • gizmo_duck

    If it's the Dell Venue Pro, hopefully it's a unit without all the problems I've been reading about like not accepting any SIM card.

  • Johnal

    With this phone I'll spend less time staring at a screen, and more time staring at a big screen.

  • Yogi

    I get more done by using the Microsoft Outlook junk filters to see less spam.

  • I would surely get more done with fewer devices if I had one good one that consolidated the functionality of several!

  • I do more with less by baking from scratch and cooking meals instead of grabbing fast food or eating out. It not only saves money, but it's also healthier. I really need a new phone!

  • During Thanksgiving, we eat more with less time! Haha, how do we do this? We always have a potluck for every Thanksgiving dinner. And we're all luck that everyone brings delicious food! It would be awesome to win!

  • If I had a Windows Phone 7, I'd use the camera on my phone more because of the dedicated camera button that can be used even when the screen is off.

  • feffrey

    Yay it is not over 9000 yet!

  • Microsoft says we can expect 3000 apps in Marketplace by the end of the week.

  • I wonder how this thing stacks up to higher-end Android devices like the X, Galaxy S, or Nexus S. Gonna have to get my hands on it to be sure! πŸ˜€

  • Yogi

    I get my screen more organized with less hassle using Windows 7’s Snaps feature.

  • conedude13

    there was supposed to be pretzels today at work. someone didn't bring them in tho. i'm sad. winning this phone would TOTALLY make me happier tho!! πŸ˜›

  • I bring snacks with me everywhere, especially while travelling. This helps avoid the low-blood-sugar rush to an awful fast-food meal.

  • k8te

    Can Windows Phone 7 be used as a hotspot (infrastructure mode) like Android?

  • We do more with less by periodically holding garage sales to help us de-clutter. We then use the proceeds to buy the whole family dinner at a nice restaurant!

  • During the holidays, I tend to premake some things that go great in 3-4 meals. Like cornbread. It is great in stuffing, as a panini, etc.

  • today is a strange work day. work to be done, practically no one in the office, yet here I am trying to still win this phone! haha.

  • Doing more with less means keeping your cars as long as possible especially when they are paid off.

  • One example of me doing more with less is carpooling with friends to school (when I don't take the train). Being college students, we'll save all the money we can and it's so convenient that I have a group of friends that all live pretty close! It's fun to see each other in the mornings, ha and eat breakfast on the go. The phone looks awesome!

  • I believe this comment is 20x different than my last

  • I spend less money buy checking out books from my local library instead of buying them.

  • feffrey

    ouch i just cut my self

  • Johnal

    This Thanksgiving, I'm thankful for having a chance to win this phone!

  • Happy Thanksgiving! I am thankful for people who pour their hearts and souls into blogging! I am especially thankful for the phone giveaway as I am in desperate need of a new one!

  • sgschm

    Doing more for less means buying a gently used car that's been cared for and maintaining it carefully for another ten years.

  • sstran

    i love giving out coupons as presents. Like ill watch your kids for an hour or help you clean your house. they are cheap and effective. so everyone is happy

  • One app I find really interesting is called “Podcasts!” It allows you to stream podcasts rather than having to download them. It has a well-designed menu that is very consistent with the WP7 theme. Podcasts are organized by category.

    I appreciate not having to store podcasts on my phone. It leaves more room for apps. πŸ˜€

  • I work at a library, so I haven't bought a book (other than gifts) in years. Support your local library, and do more with less!

  • We do more with less by making a list before we go out shopping and sticking to it.

  • Damn, I am really hungry. Good thing there is a feast in my future

  • my dogs want this phone for me to find them dog parks

  • feffrey

    yay happy turkey slaughtering day!
    (I say that in jest cause I love killing and eating turkeys.)

  • This might be a little too simple, but I do more with less by always having my laptop with me. Nowadays, since I'm in college, it seems like everything is being moved online, from turning essays in to math homework. It definitely helps me do more when I have free time and I have less stuff to carry around!

  • I do more with less by using dropbox to sync and things like Team Viewer to remotely manage computers. Think it'll work for me? Ah screw it, I'd take it anyway πŸ˜€

  • k8te

    Hope the phone has a physical keyboard.

  • Doing more for less is all about doing dishes before, during, and after thanksgiving dinner. Saves a lot of time the next day.

    P.S. happy thanksgiving

  • sgschm

    More for less: Host a get together with your friends and have a clothes swap …exchange your don't-likes and never-worns for things you can use. Everybody wins!

  • This holiday season I try to do more with less by making things myself! Whether it is food, presents, clothes, or cards I do more nice things with less money.

  • echezeaux

    I want this more than pigs in a blanket!

  • We do more with less (and spread the love) by extensively utilizing Freecycle – both giving and getting.

  • You can curl up on the couch with your WP7 phone and post on Facebook how bloated you are from Thanksgiving.

  • Austinkir

    I do more with less by using what I'm good at for gifts.

  • Yogi

    I do more with less redundancy by syncing my files using Windows Live Mesh.

  • k8te

    Are there any sites where I can browse what's available in the Windows Marketplace?

  • Johnal

    Black Friday is kicking my arse. Could sure use a WP7.

  • feffrey

    yay time for some reheats.

  • doing more with less could mean budgeting and adhering to it. It allows us to save properly and spend wisely

  • If I could fly, I'd fly with the cardinals

  • echezeaux

    want.like.whoa.

  • Windows Phone 7 supports tap-and-hold in 30 different places. Try it.

  • k8te

    There's a hack that lets you load apps that aren't from the Windows Market now. I just need to find places to get these other apps. Maybe it's too soon for Microsoft to start rejecting a bunch of apps that I might find useful.

  • My husband will kill me for saying this, but he does more with less by owning only gray socks. Seriously. He bought 30 identical pairs of gray socks. Whenever one gets a hole in it, he still has umpteen zillion other matches for it, so he doesn't have to chuck the whole pair. And yes, he is that cheap. (Which is why I'd like to win a new phone and not buy one!)

    it is annoying to buy a stapler and accidentally buy the wrong staples for it.

    WP7 will save me…i just know it…

    My grandmother taught me to “save steps”. During chore time around the house, always have something with you to be returned or replaced as you move from area to area and room to room.

  • One example of me doing more with less is simply turning off and unplugging electronics and appliances. Sometimes people forget and it adds up to the costs. As time goes by, spending a few little seconds on turning appliances off can really make a difference and save more money, more money to spend on stuff I want! I only turn things on when I need to!

  • I am trying to do more with less by entering to win wonderful giveaways!

  • The less I do, the more I win.

  • i'd really love to win the phone

  • If I had a Windows Phone 7, I would sell my iPod touch thanks to the Zune integration! Who needs to lug around two devices when a Windows Phone has it all.

  • sstran

    m and ms are probably my favorite more with less candy. i use them to decorate cakes, i use them in counting games with kids, and they just taste good

  • Doing more with less sometimes means reusing grocery bags, or buying the recyclable types and using those. Saves the environment and saves the grocery stores money, which in turn saves you money.

    I've read up on where you can long press for more options in Windows Phone 7. Gives pretty nifty features. Too bad Microsoft doesn't say where these long press options are in their manual or website.

  • I must win this, FOR AMERICA!

  • We do more with less by taking family vacations during the off-season.

  • I need the Windows 7 phone so I can get to sweet online deals before they sell out. Grr argh.

  • Johnal

    It's almost deadline time…*crosses fingers*

  • One way we do more with less is with leftovers. Especially during Thanksgiving time. An example would be using ham for lunch sandwiches and using the leftover turkey for quesadillas or my favorite turkey and tortilla soup!

  • This phone would help keep me organized so that I can do more with less!

    I'm not sure if the “one comment per day” rule is a good thing. It seems to unnecessarily inflate the post counts, with mostly merit-less posts.

  • How to do more with less? Easy! I post a message on my social networks about the party I will host on my house, and all my friends know about it and know they’re invited to! That way I don’t have to call everyone anymore! πŸ˜€

  • i like to stay organized- it helps me do more with less time

  • I could do more with less if I won the Windows Phone 7. I wouldn't miss calls from my kids & family, I would have my x-mas & shopping list on it & could get more done easier. I've need a cell phone & would love to win the Windows Phone 7. Thanks!

    Doing more for less means delegating more responsibilities to the kids so my time can be used more productively.

  • sstran

    I really like spices and herbs. If you buy them in the ethnic food section, especially the hispanic themed aisle they can be only 99 cents a bag! They add flavor to everything including cheap cuts of meat and inexpensive dishes

  • We do more with less by finishing all our holiday shopping waaay before the season gets underway. That way, we aren't caught up in holiday mania or retail marketing when the gifts are being purchased, and we don't spend as much money.

  • MahTweets is coming to Windows Phone 7. It looks to be the next big thing in Twitter clients and it supports near-real time push notifications.

  • Hopefully getting one more comment in here to boost my chances of winning this awesome phone. Really appreciate the OhGizmo folks hustling for us readers! I always love supporting my favorite blogs, and it's so easy when they give back like this. Good luck everyone…OhGizmo helps me do more with less by having all the cool stuff in one spot!

    omg omg omg!! WHO WILL WIN!?!? hope it's me!! πŸ˜›

  • Austinkir

    I do more with less by using a credit card. Free money! Just kidding.

  • k8te

    Hopefully there will be a lot of cool games on Windows Phone 7.

  • I won!

    Is exactly what I'd say if I won this contest.

  • Doing more with less: I'm on a pantry clean-out kick. No grocery store for me until all those aging boxes of couscous and off-brand pinto beans are cooked and eaten! More pantry space and more room in the grocery budget.

  • here's my last shot at winning this phone. fingers crossed

  • Andy

    Today is the last day to enter the free Windows Phone 7. I wish everyone best of luck.

  • How much more can I do?

  • feffrey

    last comment, fingers crossed

  • I do more with less by combining my errands into one drive and trip so I save gas. An example would be going to the store, post office and barbershop in one trip, rather than going at different times of the week. This way, I can do more with the money I have because of the less money I have to spend on gas!

  • Roomba needs a friend! I suspect he'd get on well with a fancy Smartphone!

  • I need organization in my life! I need to do more with less! I really need this phone!

  • Doing more with less could be decorating the christmas tree as a family. More work done in less time, and lots of family time together.

  • Sharon S

    More for less mean having an emergency kit in my car when I travel, and also carrying our own snacks and drinks so that we don't have to make expensive stops.
