Sounds great, I got in on this when the promotion was running in the US. I've got to say, the wp7 is a pretty great phone.

This definitely is a good deal. My only beef is, do they not think the phone has enough appeal to sell itself on its own merit? You don't see Apple giving away free Apps with an iPhone purchase. Similarly, you don't see Sony giving away free PS3 games to get you to buy their Xperia Play phone. It's a cool deal, but I feel it's just a way for MS to buy itself market share instead of building a device that's intrinsically appealing enough to the market to sell on its own.

Good deal though, for those who are in the market for it.

Personally, I'm thinking about buying the Samsung Galaxy S instead of any of these phones I just mentioned. Though, my next choice would be the Xperia Play, since I'm sure it will have some sort of PS3 and PSN connectivity. Of course, I'll have an NGP for that in about a year anyway. :)

@aviator189 Yeah, that's true, man. Like I said, it's definitely a good deal for those in the market for one. If you want a Windows Phone 7, now's the time to do it. ;)

The thing is, the smartphone market is really competitive now and the major players are android and iphone. No matter how good a newcomer might be after the two leaders in smartphones (android and iphone), it would be difficult for any other device to gain marketshare without some major incentives. In this case, the temporary incentive is a free 360 game with the purchase of a wp 7.

Damn, wish I had known, would have gotten my wife an HD7... I got mine when it launched...

WP7 is an awful phone os. Can't even get their updates right...

SuicideShaun2612d ago

Hey at least they fix their updates, when I had an iphone 3g and the 4 came out, the update they rolled to every phone ruined my phone. So slow, I felt like I was on dial up again. Horrible.
