Do any of those have keyboards?
And create some buzz on meego!( meego.com/ )

Intel AND AMD are working together on something, so it has to be great. And since Nokia just sucks at marketing, I’m hoping to see a kickass phone meego phone not made by Nokia.

JC on December 22, 2010 11:48 PM

Great way to start of this site.
Wonder if you will do popular app reviews as well.

Mr. Popo on December 22, 2010 11:51 PM

hello!

Mr. Popo on December 22, 2010 11:52 PM

Oh, first!

asddude on December 22, 2010 11:53 PM

so uuh does that mean i just won?

Ice8lue on December 22, 2010 11:54 PM

Man, that would be an amazing gift for christmas. I’ve never touched a Windows Phone 7 device before and i can’t wait to do so =)

Merry Christmas to the ABi team and all the members!

AJ on December 22, 2010 11:55 PM

Would love to get my hands on one of these!

Mr. Popo on December 23, 2010 12:02 AM

argh, those comments werent there before… so when do you pick winners?

Grahm Skee on December 23, 2010 12:12 AM

jan 15th! post often

sonorguy on December 23, 2010 12:04 AM

Do all of these feature the snapdragon?

Grahm Skee on December 23, 2010 12:38 AM

The Nexus S is using a Samsung Hummingbird, HTC HD7 is a Snapdragon, Not sure what the Dell is, but it is a 1ghz processor.

sYlt on December 23, 2010 12:07 AM

Well, me wants! I would choose the Dell Venue Pro. GL to everyone I guess.

Ice8lue on December 23, 2010 12:13 AM

My would love to have a HD7…was dreaming of a HD2 long before ;)

melloncollie128 on December 23, 2010 12:34 AM

What I’d really like to know is which is the better platform all around. I’m leaning towards Android but WP7 is still in its infancy. What does everyone else think?

It’s odd that not but one year ago, iOS was dominating. Glad that’s no longer the case.

Sylvan on December 23, 2010 12:36 AM

Well that’s very generous of you guys,
anythingbutsanta.com

BL93 on December 23, 2010 12:57 AM

Would love to try out win7 mobile OS (HD7 looks really nice). Gingerbread would be awesome too

nedjinski on December 23, 2010 1:11 AM

I can’t wait to see the reviews of these phones – The Win7 entry looks to be especially good.

Samat on December 23, 2010 1:11 AM

Is there an RSS feed for AnythingButiPhone? All links I find point to AnythingButiPod’s feeds.

urich on December 23, 2010 1:11 AM

WOW i realy had to make sure i read correctly
that it isn’t April

Luuk on December 23, 2010 1:13 AM

It would have been nice if you could win an iPhone. If you want to start of this site, why not start with some heated discussions about possible hypocrisy ;).

Brian on December 23, 2010 1:15 AM

Very cool – I’ve been paying attention to the Venue Pro, which used to be called the Dell Lightning.

fsplayer on December 23, 2010 1:39 AM

WOW!!!! I sooooooo hope I win!! =)

Thomas on December 23, 2010 1:40 AM

Would be cool to win, gl to everyone.

Juan J Calcano on December 23, 2010 1:53 AM

This is great, count me in, I would love a smartphone.

Vilai Yaansana on December 23, 2010 1:54 AM

So christmas is coming up.. what you gonna get me? :)

Jeff on December 23, 2010 2:06 AM

That Nexus S looks fantastic, but they are all really solid phones.

Fausto on December 23, 2010 2:19 AM

Are the phones unlock?

emfa on December 23, 2010 2:35 AM

Great site, I was wondering about the creation of anythingbutiphone years ago!

emfa on December 23, 2010 2:37 AM

Great timing now that diversity is out there: Android, Windows phone 7, etc :)

Joseph on December 23, 2010 2:39 AM

This is almost to good to be true!

Mark on December 23, 2010 2:39 AM

Please pick me pick me!!! I’d love a Nexus S.

Sambalduky58 on December 23, 2010 2:40 AM

I want to win!

Tommy on December 23, 2010 2:41 AM

From my perspective, it appears that the Windows 7 phone is gorgeous… But! I demo’d one at my local Future Shop and must say, it’s a bit buggy and slow (almost like a prototype). An update must and shall be released!

aaronandre on December 23, 2010 2:45 AM

GL

Jerry S. on December 23, 2010 3:22 AM

PLZ! DELL VENUE PRO! Or Nokia E7 :P

But the states blows with Nokia phones, only smart dudes go with Euro type, and not the generic crap!

RockHa on December 23, 2010 3:27 AM

Any of those look fantastic. WP7 would def. be an upgrade.

Arisae on December 23, 2010 3:31 AM

Awesome, Great contest too. Dell Venue Pro reminds me so much of the Zune HD; it’s sexy.

Enoch on December 23, 2010 3:33 AM

Nexus S Gingerbread goodness…here I come!!!

Joe Geronimo on December 23, 2010 3:35 AM

i’d kill for a wp7 phone… so who’s throat is it? i want a phone bad enough to almost work for it.

Naimul Khan on December 23, 2010 3:44 AM

I want the Nexus S!

AA on December 23, 2010 3:49 AM

Pretty cool stuff. Which to pick if I win though??

electron on December 23, 2010 3:52 AM

wow, nice! would be awesome to win!
thanks enzo!

AM on December 23, 2010 3:53 AM

I have heard rumours for a Nokia W7 phone, sounds awesome

shirai on December 23, 2010 3:55 AM

Awesome!! This is great because I heard people saying they want Samsung P3 b/c it sort of doubles as a phone (not quite but still). And what I really think people want is one that can do both (as long as they’re not audiophiles). I’m interested in capacities of all portable devices (tech geek?) to be extended for all things, e.g. handheld consoles, mobiles, tablets, pmp/mp4s, to be used for all things (gaming/phone/music). The closest thing seems to be Apple, but their closed system like Microsoft just don’t offer all the features I want like open source and microSD slots. Basically sort of looking for a holy-grail device that can do it all – but I do have separate game, mp3, and phone atm because as yet I can’t find them doing it well enough to replace one another. E.g. my phone can’t replace my DS’ ability to emulate, and my mp3 can’t replace phonecalls/sms/internet browsing. Honestly such a device would undoubtedly have poor battery life and be at best mediocre at all its functions. Perhaps its better for now to stick with separate devices that perform and excel at specialised functions. Still I look at the iPad – something that can replace a laptop, phone, mp3, and some games. What might be best is two devices – a phone/mp3 (for compact size) and tablet for work/videos. Anyway it’s good that you’re extending your tech-site to not just media players, because nowadays things are much more of a cross-over anyway, and I think the capacity of smartphones are closest to that of desktops (like android linux) in order to have the functionality to emulate, play media, and of course, phone functions. So if I was looking for a device to do it all, I’d have to start with a phone device, and add on the other functions and do them well. The great thing with OS’ like Android and AppleOS is that they allow developer applications, and so at least if they do a bad job of something, an app can be developed and used, like for media playback. I have a tendency to talk a lot.

Lionstone on December 23, 2010 4:05 AM

I’m definitely looking forward to joining the WP7 universe. I’ve even gone and downloaded the developer tools. :)

Charles on December 23, 2010 4:06 AM

omg, i sooo want one of these. contracts expiring soon on verizon, so it doesn’t matter that these CAN’T run on verizon, sadly though.

agent on December 23, 2010 4:07 AM

The Dell Venue Pro looks amazing. I hope it comes to Canada at some point!

SprayMyPerfume on December 23, 2010 4:08 AM

I’ll join! This is a chance to show how I love phones! Thank you so much AbiPhones. :)

Ralph on December 23, 2010 4:09 AM

awesome! happy holidays everyone

Charles on December 23, 2010 4:10 AM

and………..i’m embarrassed to admit i still have the samsung delve (yea, i’m an alltel legacy under verizon). so this would MAJORLY help me get up to speed :)

Justin on December 23, 2010 4:11 AM

This is a really good idea! These phones look awesome!

JxK on December 23, 2010 4:27 AM

Nice idea to generate more interest in the site. I applaud the idea. That said, I’d be lying if I also wasn’t interested in the phones.

Jeff on December 23, 2010 4:34 AM

What carrier would these be for?

I actually just this past Monday bought an iPhone. As a guilty as charged apple hater I have to admit it’s pretty awesome. I’m not gonna lie, I was sold by the screen.

Still stinks as a music player, I’ll keep my Cowon D2 for that.

Tyler on December 23, 2010 4:47 AM

That Nexus S looks beautiful. Definitely want.

Rusty on December 23, 2010 4:50 AM

I’ve been looking for an excuse to get a smartphone for ages-winning one seems like a perfectly acceptable excuse…

Jim on December 23, 2010 4:57 AM

@superppl

It looks like only the Venue Pro has a keyboard.

anthony on December 23, 2010 5:00 AM

I hope I win.

William Lee on December 23, 2010 5:00 AM

me please!!

Rusty Wright on December 23, 2010 5:06 AM

Apple is the lair of The Beast. Steve Jobs is the guy with the horns, goat legs, and pitchfork.

Eric on December 23, 2010 5:07 AM

Android vs Windows 7. I would not be able to decide which won to get. I love my Zune but Android is cool though.

Albert on December 23, 2010 5:09 AM

Got the Nexus S and absolutely love it. I recommended it to everyone

Frederick on December 23, 2010 5:19 AM

The nexus S look really cool, i’m not 100% in love with google way of thinking, But they make nice product,AND apple are even worst. Wp7 are also great, since i have a Hotmail,msn xbox live gold account, i could be nice to had a phone that sync all that. i’m happy for Microsoft, Windows 7 is a really good OS, and their phone seem a really good start.

lestatar on December 23, 2010 5:27 AM

CONGRATULATIONS ENZO and ABi…

Matt on December 23, 2010 5:28 AM

Those all look like amazing pieces of technology. Especially the Galaxy S (*drool*)

It’s pretty mind blowing to see how far these phones have come in the past few years.

ryan on December 23, 2010 5:34 AM

Interesting, even more interesting to win a Nexus S. Convergence is now.

Joe on December 23, 2010 5:40 AM

Anythingbutiphone.com was the best find of the night!

Dean on December 23, 2010 5:43 AM

Nexus S with Gingerbeard of course!

Android is getting better and with further updates the Nexus S will be more awesome.

SKW on December 23, 2010 5:43 AM

if only there is an at&t version of dell venue pro….

Scott on December 23, 2010 5:45 AM

Great, a site to counter all the iphone propaganda.

Mikhael on December 23, 2010 6:09 AM

YEAHHHHHH :)

woozle wuzzle on December 23, 2010 6:15 AM

Oh man, what a giveaway. Interested on how the Windows 7 platform would perform against Android, especially with 2.3 gingerbread on the Nexus S which is very fast. In the end though, they’re all wonderful phones which i’ll bet anyone would be happy to win.

Shinbum on December 23, 2010 6:19 AM

Wow, great way to open the new ABI forum!
I am very excited to see the competitors against Apple.

Sebastian Granstrand on December 23, 2010 6:32 AM

Well, this first comment will be rather superfluous, but I have one valid comment:
Is the phones unlocked? That seems like it could be a big deal for some people.

JK on December 23, 2010 6:35 AM

Great way to start off the website! If I do happen to win, it’ll be a difficult choice between the Nexus S or Dell Venue Pro. Currently I have the LG Optimus 7 and I seriously love the Windows Phone 7 OS but the Nexus S just has so much going for it. We shall see. This site will definitely take off and you can bet it’s a bookmark for me ;)

Cheers!

Greasy Taco Aficionado on December 23, 2010 6:57 AM

Hello anythingbutistuff people. Great to see you launch a new site. I’m sure this will be a big success for you as I was blown away by the content and community over at anythingbutipod.com.

Those are three great phones. As much as I like WP7, I’d probably choose the NexusS. But these phone manufacturers are going to have to learn 16GB not enough for a $500+ smartphone.

Greasy Taco Aficionado on December 23, 2010 7:01 AM

Great time to launch this site too. 2011 is going to be truly insane with WP7, Android, Nokia (with Meego), and ofcourse iOS, in an all out war for the smartphone market. And hopefully we’ll see something great from Palm WebOS and RIM’s QNX.

Spacelord on December 23, 2010 7:02 AM

This is the start of something great. I’m looking at android or WP7 for my next phone. Wp7 would be cool because I already have Zune software on the PC. I still have my trusty brown Zune. The updates MS did for that lovable brown brick were huge. If they support their phones like they do their players, Wp7 could become THE standard for smartphones.

Spencer P on December 23, 2010 7:18 AM

I love Anything but iPod and go there pretty much every day haha. I’ve got the Cowon s9 (Which is being sent in to be repaired…. Again) and am hoping to get a J3 soon to replace it. Anyways, great to see this site launching; it’s needed. Good luck, everyone!

copeys on December 23, 2010 7:19 AM

Wow, congrats guys on the new website!!!

Must say, looking forward to drooling over the phones you guys are going to be showing off here!! ;)

Joheu on December 23, 2010 7:19 AM

Nice. I am firmly AnythingButApple, so this just adds another Apple-free zone for me!

Maxisone on December 23, 2010 7:53 AM

Congrats on the new site.

Hopefully we get to see more more reviews.. more often

Juozas on December 23, 2010 8:05 AM

This is great. I look forward to quality reviews as you do on anythingbutipod.

Jdub on December 23, 2010 8:23 AM

I wouldn’t use one of these iPhonies if my life depended on it! anythingbutiphone.com?? I smell iPhone envy!!!!!!

Matthew B. on December 23, 2010 8:36 AM

This is great. I love windows phone and android phones. Even though I’m here on iPod touch, as my only android/windows 6.5 phone is xperia x1, I would love to change that.

Great idea, if this website will be half as successful as anythingbutipod it’s perfect!!

KT on December 23, 2010 8:40 AM

omgggg nexus s

tirim4 on December 23, 2010 8:59 AM

Man I had totally missed out on this site! Great advertising!

Ice8lue on December 23, 2010 9:22 AM

As the phones are shipped wherever you want to, i think they are unlocked. My choice still would be the HD7, i love that theater-like screen =D

Jearv on December 23, 2010 9:22 AM

Wow, this is so great! I would really love to get my hands on a Venue Pro!

me myself on December 23, 2010 9:57 AM

GREAT way to promote these new terminals.
GREATER even if you read the contest is open to anyone who can receive mail. It’s not usual contests break frontiers.
Glad to have an opportunity

philwc on December 23, 2010 10:12 AM

I’ve still not decided if I like the look of WP7. There’s still just so much you can do with Android…

Chris on December 23, 2010 10:26 AM

This is a very good way to promote your site. Abi is slowly dying as more people are getting interested in mobile phones, and mp3 players are getting kind of dated. Here’s hoping you can test the audio quality of these new phones :)

Gruffler on December 23, 2010 10:28 AM

I think the main difference between them is the software. In my opinion Android is the best because its open source and the android market grows very fast. Also the nexus s got new technology with nfc. But soon dual core phones will come out and these aren’t that good anymore.

The One on December 23, 2010 10:44 AM

Dell looks awesome.

Evan on December 23, 2010 11:05 AM

Cool! I am commenting here to enter the contest! :)

me on December 23, 2010 11:09 AM

@Superppl
None of these feature a slideout keyboard,
but if you’re looking for a slideout keybaord on a WP7 phone, 7 Pro features one.

Hegwah on December 23, 2010 11:09 AM

Android will win the war.

MatmaN on December 23, 2010 11:10 AM

I’m really looking forward to change my phone. Symbian got so “old” during last two years. I was aiming for Android device, but than heard of Windows Mobile 7… is it any good?

JB on December 23, 2010 11:40 AM

Pick me! Pick me!

The sad part? I don’t even care about the phone functionality. I want a shiny new PDA, and can’t get one without a cellphone attached.

SerialSucider on December 23, 2010 12:10 PM

Man, that would be an amazing gift for christmas. I’ve never touched a Windows Phone 7 device before and i can’t wait to do so =)
Merry Christmas to the ABi team and all the members!

Tim on December 23, 2010 12:33 PM

Any of these is an upgrade from my little old hero… and I still have a year of that left on contract :( a free unlocked phone would definatly solve this! :)

slitz on December 23, 2010 12:34 PM

2 slate phones and one hybrid? I don’t think anyone could go wrong with that.

Tried out Windows Phone 7 before in a store, very fluid menus and fancy games (check out Rocket Riot).

Android? Has some funky stuff right now, though the market is full of fart apps. At least Angry Birds is free on it! Greatest time wasting game I’ve played on the phone, I’ve played the original N900 version!

I can develop and publish 5 free applications thanks to Dreamspark (https://www.dreamspark.com/default.aspx), but I have no phone to test them out with.
I’d love a 7 Pro, but a Venue Pro is fine too.

Terry on December 23, 2010 12:36 PM

Nexus S isn’t available in my country yet. This would be a great chance for everyone like me to get one!

ykcu7 on December 23, 2010 12:40 PM

HD7! I miss hw keyboard on my HD2!

me on December 23, 2010 1:12 PM

@Superppl
I misread venue for venue pro…
It does feature a slideout keyboard.

Frank Sacriste on December 23, 2010 1:13 PM

Open to all countries is a nice thing!

less on December 23, 2010 1:17 PM

are these phones unlocked?

Grahm Skee on December 23, 2010 2:10 PM

The nexus S is unlocked. The others you would have to unlock yourself. Also pay attention to the frequency bands and make sure they work in your country.

less on December 23, 2010 1:19 PM

i would love to try that dell. l’ve never played with wp7 device.

happyblinker on December 23, 2010 1:25 PM

I hope this gets as many updates as abi.

ray smith on December 23, 2010 2:17 PM

which of these has the best(cheapest)data plan?

Ice8lue on December 23, 2010 2:28 PM

Checked, the HD7 will work over here =D *crosses fingers*

Lukas M on December 23, 2010 2:34 PM

Good luck in starting up this website.
Nice contest. Could use an upgrade to my Nokia monochromatic antique mobile.

Steve Yagozinski on December 23, 2010 2:43 PM

Nice way to get the site going! I would love to win the Nexus S….

I sure couldn’t afford to get one myself :)

Leen on December 23, 2010 3:04 PM

I would love to have one of these too. Thank you, people!

David V on December 23, 2010 3:31 PM

Congratulations on the new website!!

Will on December 23, 2010 3:49 PM

Good luck to all who entered!

Harold Campbell on December 23, 2010 4:03 PM

This is a comment. There are many like it, but this one is mine. Also, Nexus S please.

JK on December 23, 2010 4:03 PM

After some thought, I’m leaning towards the Dell Venue Pro now. It’s just a sheer pleasure using Windows Phone 7. I’m looking forward to your reviews on the LG Optimus 2X :)

Cheers!

kyle schottmiller on December 23, 2010 4:25 PM

Thank you for the entry. I would love one of these phones.

Brian S on December 23, 2010 4:36 PM

This new site looks good.

Jonathan Nation on December 23, 2010 4:45 PM

I am glad you are expanding from just the MP3 player market to the phone market too.

I hope this is a sign that things are going well for you.

Jentse Hoekstra on December 23, 2010 4:48 PM

Wow! I just found out that there is an anythingbutiphone website; awesome! Anythingbutipod certainly helped me the past few years to learn about the truly great mp3 players and saved me from Apple ignorance!
I would really like to win one of these phones, running Android on my HTC HD2 is just not optimal solution… I would love WP7!!!

Governor on December 23, 2010 4:48 PM

All these phones look great. I’m loving the looks of the new windows phones.

Nick on December 23, 2010 4:57 PM

Damn yo i had my LG phone, you know one of those flip up phones from 2005 lol yea i need a new phone and this would help greatly!!!!!! :D

Woldstad on December 23, 2010 5:01 PM

Loved the Nexus One, but I felt oddly empty when using the Nexus S, just like I was dating the evil twin sister of my ex-girlfriend. Not a fun feeling. Especially when you begin to glance around every time you use the S, just to make sure that the One isn’t watching. So I think I’ll just stick with a whole different family. I like windows phone 7, but the HD7 is too big to fit in my pocket, so I’ll just stick with the Dell Streak. Thanks in advance!

Thierry Giguere on December 23, 2010 5:20 PM

Brilliant way of starting a new site! So we got 2 android phones and another with windows. Android is completely open, more apps, while windows is more closed for stability and speed. That is going to be great competition for the market…

Sam Verem on December 23, 2010 5:23 PM

ello! Nexus S please

Terry on December 23, 2010 5:23 PM

been waiting for a phone site from you guys.

Sendy Friedlander on December 23, 2010 5:25 PM

I’m leaning towards the Nexus S. 2X faster GPU than the others, since W7 only supports (for now) the old 65nm Snapdragons.

Woldstad on December 23, 2010 5:31 PM

Looking around the site, I figured out it has been up for months! How did I not know this? It must be Steve Jobs evil doing…

Ariel Herrera on December 23, 2010 5:47 PM

oooh i want to win :))

Ace on December 23, 2010 5:55 PM

I want one

Robert Mutton on December 23, 2010 6:13 PM

I really like the Venue Pro, but the Nexus S really intrigues me. I currently am rocking a HD7, very nice phone :)

patrik on December 23, 2010 6:13 PM

wow! awesome “competition”. i could definitely use a new phone :D

anyway, good luck with this “new” abi (should we come up with a new short name? :))

Rj on December 23, 2010 6:19 PM

wicked contest. Dell VP FTW!!!

ChrisB on December 23, 2010 6:44 PM

great idea! hope i win!!

Matt Kremer on December 23, 2010 6:47 PM

True about Android being more open, with more apps, but the WP7 phones have the Zune software. Though, the Nexus S sounds really nice, what with being unlocked and all.

Yay! Another anything but apple website! I needed a new techie site for my bookmark bar.

Nick Battaglia on December 23, 2010 6:49 PM

I would love a new smart phone!

Melanie G. on December 23, 2010 7:04 PM

Nexus S please!

Ketul on December 23, 2010 7:39 PM

All of this phones are awesome but in my opinion its hard to beat Nexus S..I love Gingerbread :P

Brian Becerra on December 23, 2010 7:42 PM

I think I’d prefer the Nexus S

Jordan on December 23, 2010 8:11 PM

Well this is a great way to launch a site! I’m going to be in the market soon for a new phone (well hopefully this raffle makes that decision easier for me), and as a Linux user I heavily lean toward the Android operating system. However I’m also very much looking forward to the MeeGo OS in early 2010.

Enoch on December 23, 2010 8:13 PM

Windows phone is truly beautiful looking!

salixman on December 23, 2010 8:38 PM

superppl: Not sure about the other two, but I know the Nexus S doesn’t have a physical keyboard. Although the Nexus is still my favorite phone there (HINT HINT).

Steve on December 23, 2010 8:52 PM

In my opinion windows phone looks terrible.

Ahsan on December 23, 2010 9:06 PM

The Nexus S is pretty cool though not too big of a departure from the Nexus One spec wise. Also its cool to see another website that’ll cover something other than Apple products.

Steve on December 23, 2010 9:10 PM

give me the nexus s:-), please

SkunkMan on December 23, 2010 9:32 PM

Android all the way

kiler on December 23, 2010 9:39 PM

I would like to get my hands on that nifty Nexus S!!! Altough the HD7 would be good aswell.

Wojtek on December 23, 2010 9:41 PM

I wish u a Merry Christmas…

…and a nice phone for me :D

Swilly on December 23, 2010 10:43 PM

Wow! Love the Holiday Spirit!

Jay on December 24, 2010 12:39 AM

Pick me! Merry Christmas!

JxK on December 24, 2010 1:08 AM

O.o
My, how this comments thread has grown. This really was a great idea enzoten. Hopefully it’ll allow your “soft launch” to take off properly. ;)

longcipher on December 24, 2010 1:43 AM

Oh dear — any one of those devices would do it for me. WP7 and Android are it, as far as I am concerned.

pseudohippy on December 24, 2010 2:01 AM

Fantastic, thanks for all the good coverage over the years and awesome forums. What a deal to give away a phone like this. Ill be crossing my fingers and hoping for the best. Thanks ABI.

yitzy on December 24, 2010 2:14 AM

Cool!

nice new site!

sonorguy on December 24, 2010 2:30 AM

I wish the Nexus S had a microSD slot

The DarkSide on December 24, 2010 2:34 AM

I just migrated to another carrier, and I want this sexy beast!!! Hope all have a shot, but it’s MINE!!! Muahahahahahahaha!!!

Otacon239 on December 24, 2010 2:37 AM

I’m so glad to see that the anythingbut[insert Apple Product here] sites are expanding lowly but surely. I alway trust their reviews even though they haven’t been putting out as many Creative Labs reviews as I would like.

Brian on December 24, 2010 2:47 AM

Reaaaaaaaaly want one of the Windows phones. I’ve always kept up with Windows Mobile and was even planning to get a WM6.5 phone with wifi capability (LG something) but then I saw WP7 and it was worth the wait :)

Scott on December 24, 2010 2:57 AM

That Nexus S is surely awesome, along with the HD7. Lets get this site as active as ABIpod!

daehoidar on December 24, 2010 3:16 AM

Great site. Nexus S looks hard to beat, but I’m looking forward to the Meizu M9.

MazingerZ on December 24, 2010 4:09 AM

Awesome another yet great review site

joseph liang on December 24, 2010 4:24 AM

yayyyy i win!

Dave on December 24, 2010 4:33 AM

Hah i thought it was the same site at first, but this is interesting. Looking forward to it! =]

Ariel Herrera on December 24, 2010 4:35 AM

the nexus looks awesome :D

Solomon on December 24, 2010 4:53 AM

I really wished everybody got one entry but I guess its ok this way. Time to spam the comments lol…. j/k

I’m not gonna spam the comments.

12345142 on December 24, 2010 5:39 AM

After my iPod broke, I visited anythingbutipod and got my P3. Now I’m as happy as a clam…hopefully anythingbutiphone will continue to deter people from becoming iSheep. Congrats on the new site, and thanks for the generous contest!

enigman on December 24, 2010 5:58 AM

I really want to replace my HTC Diamond with anyone of these….especially Nexus S

Brian on December 24, 2010 6:37 AM

SWEET! would love me a DVP!

Matt on December 24, 2010 6:51 AM

God this contest makes me wish I had a phone…

Especially one of those phones.

big_gun on December 24, 2010 8:00 AM

I like the Dell Venue Pro with the slide out keyboard. Pretty nice.

Tuck on December 24, 2010 8:25 AM

I love anythingbutipod and it’s great to see the site branching out. Can’t wait to see your review of the Nexus S.

Rusty on December 24, 2010 9:18 AM

It’s great to see that apple isn’t the “talk of the town” anymore. Android came out with a lot of potential and didn’t disapoint.

jason on December 24, 2010 9:58 AM

i want dell venue pro!

Jay on December 24, 2010 11:28 AM

Android is getting better and better but I think the OS for the HD7 isn’t too sophisticated yet =/

SerialSucider on December 24, 2010 12:14 PM

This is a really good idea! These phones look awesome!

BenCF on December 24, 2010 12:41 PM

They certainly do!

I’d love to get my hands on one of the WP7 phones… I’ve never won any of these contests before though, but I certainly won’t win by not trying!

Merry Christmas eve

-Ben

Juozas on December 24, 2010 1:01 PM

I would really want a Nexus S.

abizap on December 24, 2010 1:07 PM

This is a nice contest :D
Good luck all of you!

Splyre on December 24, 2010 1:12 PM

What a way to start things off!

After my dumbphone finally broke, it’ll be nice to get a smartphone. :D

Kcop on December 24, 2010 1:34 PM

Would be interesting to know how you got your hands on that Venue Pro, since availability with this device is quite a horror. Too bad that I’ve fallen in love with that piece of tech since its announcement :S

Il_Sio on December 24, 2010 2:41 PM

Nice contest!

Revan on December 24, 2010 2:44 PM

Great idea, i’d love to try the new google phone

William on December 24, 2010 2:52 PM

Up next: anythingbutimac.com?

:)

SkunkMan on December 24, 2010 3:14 PM

Nice site

vic on December 24, 2010 3:30 PM

Sweet contest. I’ve been using my Samsung C417 for way too long!

next site should probably anythingbutianything

Wardell on December 24, 2010 3:51 PM

I would love that Nexus S!

CARL on December 24, 2010 4:06 PM

This is a good idea ,will be bookmarking ,need a new phone and cant make up my mind between Windows 7 or Android.

Yazad on December 24, 2010 4:39 PM

OMG! I would love to win one of this, this is why anythingbutipod.iPad. iPhone is great…all other give aways are for iCraps :) Both android and Windows phone 7 are excellent operating systems and i would be grateful for either one of these, BTW, the HTC desire HD, Samsung galaxy s, and the Samsung wave r all awesome too :) Merry Christmas and a Happy New years to all!!!!!!!

Phil on December 24, 2010 5:40 PM

These phones earn the right to be called superphones when they can make my toast XD

Flower on December 24, 2010 6:14 PM

Would really be a nice present!

Sugiarto on December 24, 2010 6:17 PM

Haven’t seen this website for a while and when I visit again, there’s a giveaway. Love anythingbutipod.com so much. I’m not really into smartphone, but I would really like to have Nexus S for the OLED Display.

Weier on December 24, 2010 6:21 PM

Aww a little late for the holidays but I can’t complain about such a nice give-away. I’m with T-mobile, so any of these phones would be awesome (especially the Nexus :D)

Clayton on December 24, 2010 6:34 PM

Does anyone notice that the Nexus S is quite dim compared to other phones?

David C on December 24, 2010 6:39 PM

This is great – I am SOOO tired of the iPhone being the only thing anyone talks about. I hope this site is as successful as anythingbutipod.

BryceG on December 24, 2010 6:44 PM

Oh my goodness, I LOVE both of these phones. HTC has been my favorite manufacturer of phones for a while now, but I’m a little disappointed they didn’t build their ‘SENSE UI’ into it. :/ Ahh well, it’s ok now that they have their HTC hub. Love that animation!

SerialSucider on December 24, 2010 7:48 PM

WOW!!!! I sooooooo hope I win!! =)

Au on December 24, 2010 7:55 PM

coooool!! I can’t wait to see what you guys have to say, lol =D

me on December 24, 2010 8:14 PM

I tried subscribing to the feed via RSS but got the same feed as anythingButIpod,
I wished I could inform someone on this but the “Contact” page gets me a to a 404

milan on December 24, 2010 8:36 PM

Looking at that venue pro makes me think: are gadget whores or enthusiasts? Is there a difference?

milan on December 24, 2010 8:37 PM

*are we gadget

Necrun on December 24, 2010 9:00 PM

Finally anythingbutiphone, I was desesperated to not see a good page for reviews and valueable info for smartphones because I am and I will be a Apple hater ¬¬.

Ben Marvin on December 24, 2010 9:05 PM

No Symbian phones? loljk, I’d love a Nexus S.

GregK on December 24, 2010 9:55 PM

Wow !
Never thought this site would start having phones too! :))

Jack4L on December 24, 2010 11:05 PM

You’re going to break the comment threshold of the front page with this one ;p

Joseph on December 24, 2010 11:52 PM

All these phones are amazing. Would be great to have one for a Christmas gift. especially since the only way to get these phones for a deep discount is by signing up for a contract.

Jdub on December 25, 2010 12:08 AM

This site is hilarious! All you do is validate Apple when you promote such silly things as this…..keep it up! I love it!!

jefri on December 25, 2010 12:15 AM

wow,i love this website…. hopfeully u guys will post more android apps review… thx so much in advance… damn,i wan tat nexus…

btw,i’ve been avid follower at anythingbutipod since few yrs ago..

jan on December 25, 2010 12:31 AM

er jeez, i’d like one; send one to me please? ;D

Giuliano on December 25, 2010 1:13 AM

Wassup!

Gody on December 25, 2010 1:45 AM

that’s a great chance to get one smart phone XDDDD
good job!!!anythingbutipod!!!
hope you guys keep rising up the popularity of your site!

jesse C. on December 25, 2010 4:09 AM

I need a new smartphone lol, mine sux! good luck to all, merry christmas!

Ketul on December 25, 2010 4:21 AM

You know what guys? Smartphones should’nt be called smartphones these days..I mean seriously they should be just called computers.. I mean seriously they babies have 1 Ghz processor in it and pretty much could do more than my netbook can..And you know whats amazing? Samsung is coming out with Dual Core Processor cellphone..I mean how crazy is that..cellphone with 2 Ghz processing power in it..Man I cant wait to get my hands on this babies..

dragnandy on December 25, 2010 4:50 AM

oh my goodie-ness! This is going to be something!!

tcranenj on December 25, 2010 5:59 AM

Next up…anything but ipad.

César on December 25, 2010 6:05 AM

So, i didn´t know about this site, only about anythingbutipod.com, and there i saw the link to this, hopefully the site is as good, by the way, i am a bit surprised you have a Venue Pro, i heard there is a shortage, looking forward to the review.

SkunkMan on December 25, 2010 6:18 AM

Wasabi?

Machiventa on December 25, 2010 7:42 AM

Come and get some of this!

Matt on December 25, 2010 9:16 AM

Definitely tired of seeing literally EVERY phone at the christmas party be an iPhone. iPhone and iOS are the lazy kid who threw the project together the morning before class, while Android and Windows Mobile are the hardworking kids who take pride in what they produce.

Merry Christmas! I hope I get AnythingButiPhone!

SerialSucider on December 25, 2010 9:23 AM

Very cool – I’ve been paying attention to the Venue Pro, which used to be called the Dell Lightning.

Russell on December 25, 2010 9:25 AM

Merry Christmas from a Soldier deployed in Baghdad.

sooevo on December 25, 2010 9:40 AM

I have ants in my pants . I would love it if you guys reviewed the nexus s and take a listen to the sq! Some insight on that would be great and much anticipated!

Nikko on December 25, 2010 10:26 AM

Cool! Happy holidays!

Tommy on December 25, 2010 10:47 AM

After playing around with an iPhone 4 today, I realized how much more I want a 7 or Android phone. In short for words? What kind of a phone overheats!?! Come on, it said that the phone should cool down before I could use it. That’s insane.

Yazad on December 25, 2010 10:57 AM

it would be cool if you could tell us what phone u think has the best sound quality.

Yazad on December 25, 2010 10:59 AM

also Merry Christmas to everyone and good luck…anyone smart enough to realise how crap the iphone is deserves an excellent smartphone

DrPeePee on December 25, 2010 11:04 AM

Brilliant way to launch the new site. I was hoping abi would do something like this for a while.

Hello-World on December 25, 2010 11:15 AM

I love those phones , though i have’nt got one :P

Hello-World on December 25, 2010 11:17 AM

anyways , are those one better than iphone 4 ?

Tommy on December 25, 2010 11:37 AM

We can’t really say the iPhone is crap. I mean, I know anythingbutiphone strives to show alternatives to the iOS devices but all devices have their flaws in long run. As long as you can get the hardware to correlate with the software, then it’s all good. The Google Nexus One is a perfect example, minimalistic lines and sexy screen w/ ANDROID. It’s a dream device, but damn, Windows Phone 7 is really delicious. Looking at it makes me drool, however like I said before it needs an update.

Hello-World on December 25, 2010 11:46 AM

sooner or later it will , trust me

BenCF on December 25, 2010 12:37 PM

Yeah- They’re saying the SECOND one will come out in February I believe. So we can expect the first one in CES?

David Nodave on December 25, 2010 1:00 PM

Mary Christmas everyone! <<<|-

Contest is always a great idea! Good luck getting moar popular ;).

LinkTree on December 25, 2010 1:40 PM

Cool idea!
Hope you’ll have great success and you’ll bring great stories here!

sonorguy on December 25, 2010 2:46 PM

I feel like the team between Google and Samsung is perfect. Samsung has some of, if not the, best hardware in the business imo, but they always f*ck up Android with their skin and then take forever to release later versions of Android, which then proceed to brick the phone (see Galaxy S phones). This way you get the best software (pure Android) and awesome hardware.

Juozas on December 25, 2010 3:07 PM

Hope to see some video reviews too.

jigs on December 25, 2010 3:24 PM

i want to have them >:D

jigs on December 25, 2010 3:25 PM

what is the best of the three?

jigs on December 25, 2010 3:26 PM

i want android but i also want windows phone 7 :)))

Nathe on December 25, 2010 3:49 PM

Holy cow, that’s a lot of comments.

Joe Geronimo on December 25, 2010 4:50 PM

i just realized i could enter more than once. I’ve been slipping up the past few days.

Stig on December 25, 2010 5:44 PM

Please, do include reviews of “superphones” with qwerty keyboard. My next phone is very likely to have touch screen. But I really need the keyboard when typing messages and so on. And I do use my phone to send messages…

milan on December 25, 2010 5:45 PM

@nathe indeed. But not nearly as much on iPhone giveaways xD
That’s sad.

Jordan on December 25, 2010 6:29 PM

hi. Thanks for holding this contest.

BL93 on December 25, 2010 6:30 PM

Merry Christmas everyone!!! and good luck to everyone

Ketul on December 25, 2010 7:05 PM

I really like all of this phones because all of them a free app that lets your text for free..and thats all I want for christmass

SerialSucider on December 25, 2010 7:22 PM

Would be cool to win, good luck to everyone.

SerialSucider on December 25, 2010 7:23 PM

wohooo!

Taxloss on December 25, 2010 7:43 PM

As long it’s not an iPhone I’m all ears!

Edmund Fung on December 25, 2010 8:05 PM

Sweet!

Sebastiaan on December 25, 2010 8:35 PM

Awesome, I would love to get my hands on the Dell one. Would be happy to get rid of my old BB 8900.

SerialSucider on December 25, 2010 8:47 PM

Well that’s very generous of you guys

Joe on December 25, 2010 8:55 PM

I’m going through the reviews of all these phones today, and I am amazed at how far phone hardware and software has gone in the past year.

Tyler on December 25, 2010 11:45 PM

Winning either a windows 7 or android phone makes the choice between the two OS’s so much easier

Jim on December 26, 2010 12:06 AM

I would use a smartphone mostly for wifi. I hate lugging around my laptop just to keep up with emails.

Bob on December 26, 2010 12:12 AM

Merry Christmas!

Rusty on December 26, 2010 12:28 AM

@Ketul

I never thought of that, I wonder if I could successfully ditch my computer and just use a “smartphone” for all of my needs…well most of them anyway. I guess I would still need to use MATLAB and FORTRAN occasionally with a little bit of ANSYS thrown in.

Hello-World on December 26, 2010 1:31 AM

well , you guy’s purposes are too simple :”> , mine is to play PS1 game on mobile phone :))

Hello-World on December 26, 2010 1:32 AM

these ones have CPU abvout 800 mhz or 1ghz if iam not wrong

Jack4L on December 26, 2010 1:34 AM

@Ketul

Look where that got Nokia ;)

Really though, yeah sure they are more like computers these days, but really it just makes talking about them easier.

Tommy on December 26, 2010 2:19 AM

@melloncollie128 To be honest Buddy, both phones have their strengths and weaknesses. I mean I tried out the Windows Phone 7 and it really is in it’s infancy stages, but imagine the potential it has, the music interface is absolutely killer! However it’s a bit buggy, vs. the ANDROID. With ANDROID being all over the world as an open platform it all comes down to the type of user that you are, from there you make your decision. Gingerbread 2.3 is soon to come out and who knows how much power the software will output!

Joe on December 26, 2010 2:31 AM

I’m really liking that Nexus S. Even if I don’t win I might get one.

Mr. Popo on December 26, 2010 2:42 AM

I think that as WP7 progresses all the bugs will work out, ive played with it, and it does feel sort of new, but the experience is definantly positive

Anthony on December 26, 2010 4:33 AM

Awesome

Kevin on December 26, 2010 4:35 AM

Merry christmas everyone!

Hello-World on December 26, 2010 6:39 AM

3 of them are so charming :X

SkunkMan on December 26, 2010 7:17 AM

Happy Christmas

Sekene on December 26, 2010 7:30 AM

Merry Xmas. Great Phones. Great site.

Sekene on December 26, 2010 7:31 AM

I think the Nexus S is the WINner.

Ariel Herrera on December 26, 2010 7:53 AM

merry late christmas lol

GameTraveler on December 26, 2010 8:35 AM

Great site! I’ll be sure to do more than troll for some of the articles! :)

SerialSucider on December 26, 2010 9:19 AM

These phones look awesome!

Juozas on December 26, 2010 9:24 AM

Still hoping for Nexus S.

Yazad on December 26, 2010 9:42 AM

Loving the Nexus S, just wish it has a micro SD card slot, then i could bump up the memory to 48GB!!!!!!

Yazad on December 26, 2010 9:45 AM

OMFG!!! I just read that the nexus s doesn’t have HD video recording…I can’t believe that, it’s an expensive, high-end phone! It should have HD video recording… shame :(

Hello-World on December 26, 2010 10:10 AM

oh yes , 3 of them don’t cost u “much” , though they are still charming :X

Robert on December 26, 2010 10:24 AM

Very Nice Giveaways!

Adrian on December 26, 2010 10:40 AM

Top notch site guys. It would be sweet to have that nexus s.

Mark Benewith on December 26, 2010 10:45 AM

mmmmmm, sexy phones….

Steffman on December 26, 2010 10:51 AM

The windows phones do look nice, but i think i’d still rather go for android, i see the number of apps going sky high in the next year or 2, they’re just much more accessible than iphone and they have the headstart over windows. Or will the apps be easy to bridge from android to windows?

tyrael on December 26, 2010 10:52 AM

Thanks for the giveaway!

Qth on December 26, 2010 12:03 PM

hey! nice giveaway! ill nore than glad to get my hands on one of those win7.
right now i own an x10 mini android but reviews bout win7 been more than great!

Adrien Nickel on December 26, 2010 12:24 PM

The HD7 is the best of the three for me. It is a real shame though that the EVO wont be in the UK due to our rubbish networks.

I heard 4G is being tested by O2 in Slough but I have not heard anything else about this.

Still would be well chuffed to win that HD7! :)

Etch04 on December 26, 2010 12:43 PM

great site… with killer contest!

barnz2k on December 26, 2010 12:51 PM

Stil, are any of these as durable as my 6yo Nokia 5140i? :)

Hey on December 26, 2010 3:22 PM

whoot!!!

Andy on December 26, 2010 3:27 PM

so… HTC?

SerialSucider on December 26, 2010 4:16 PM

Brilliant way to launch the new site. I was hoping abi would do something like this for a while.

Gotspe on December 26, 2010 4:55 PM

Awesome! Would love winning the HTC!

jigs on December 26, 2010 5:07 PM

i want that three :))

Terry on December 26, 2010 7:40 PM

how about a galaxy tab??

Schmierwurst on December 26, 2010 9:18 PM

Finally! I was waiting for this site for nearly a year. But good things come to those who wait. So thank you guys.

I’m thinking about replacing my Milestone (Motorola droid in the European version) in late January. Never again Motorola. So I guess I’ll check out these htc sweets. Win7? Why not give it at least a try.

Weier on December 26, 2010 9:20 PM

Would make an amazing late present to get that Nexus S screen. Top notch stuff

marito on December 26, 2010 9:21 PM

Yeahh,great giveaway,I really like the Nexus S, every success on your new site start!

Jonah on December 26, 2010 9:45 PM

I don’t have a phone at all sooo, ya one of these would be awesome!

P.S. this site is awesome and I use it all the time so I’m sure all use the new one too. You guys rock!

Jonah on December 26, 2010 9:47 PM

Can I comment more than once?

Jonah on December 26, 2010 9:48 PM

sweet!

Jonah on December 26, 2010 9:52 PM

I looked up all three and I have to say…

beast!

Jonah on December 26, 2010 9:53 PM

If I had to choose it would be one of the windows 7 phones.

Jonah on December 26, 2010 9:55 PM

Never mind, the nexus s is way better. :P

Jonah on December 26, 2010 9:57 PM

Great, ever since I looked at the middle one (HD7) I have G6 in my head.

Jonah on December 26, 2010 9:58 PM

That song SUCKS!

Mr. Popo on December 26, 2010 10:18 PM

Vilai Yaansana on December 26, 2010 11:41 PM

Do I win yet?

francesco on December 26, 2010 11:52 PM

yoyoyoyoyo i must win venue pro!!!!!!!!!1

Diego Mota on December 27, 2010 12:01 AM

Wow that is a pretty cool way to kick off the launch of a new web site.

Eason de Guzman Jr on December 27, 2010 12:06 AM

Whoa! A chance to win by just commenting?

The Nexus S is more enough for a prize, at least its a google product. :D

Not like the other brands that take ages just for an update

Ash on December 27, 2010 12:40 AM

So glad you are starting something new! hoping that this will be as great as anythingbutipod!

bingofuel on December 27, 2010 1:10 AM

I really hope MS delivers on the Xbox Live integration. What I really want is to be able to download mini-games (e.g. Fable II Pub Games) onto my smartphone that integrate with the game I am playing on my X360 (e.g. Fable II). That way my efforts/rewards gained on my smartphone actually contribute towards something tangible when I get home. The way it is right now, there’s really no incentive to take smartphone games too seriously apart from wasting time on your daily commute or while traveling.

Ash on December 27, 2010 1:23 AM

Also, i was hoping that you could create an rss for the site? I can’t follow you on reader and it makes me sad :(

Aaron on December 27, 2010 1:42 AM

Great ideal! Dell venue pro looks great but nexus s is nice as well!

Spencer P on December 27, 2010 1:52 AM

I can’t wait ’til the end and the winner’s announced. It’ll be great for anyone to win any of these phones; what you guys are doing is awesome.

Hello-World on December 27, 2010 3:13 AM

there’s so many spams :) . anyways , i hope to get one soon :D

Hello-World on December 27, 2010 3:14 AM

ahh…. which one is more stable with Ps1 emulation huh ?

ytz on December 27, 2010 4:04 AM

Well, pity there isn’t a chance to win HTC Desire HD. That is my dream phone! But nevertheless all 3 phones above are great phone! Big screen ftw!

Joe on December 27, 2010 4:15 AM

@Hello-World

I know, with all of this spam I can feel my chances at a smartphone slipping away…

Tsuinami on December 27, 2010 7:57 AM

watta way to kick start a new website

Ice8lue on December 27, 2010 8:40 AM

Christmas Holidays are over now but i want to say Merry Christmas to all of you though. The wasn’t a new phone under my tree as i hoped to be, but maybe there is still a chance to win one over here =) i’m still dreaming of the HD7 ;)

Even though i would love the nexus s, i just don’t think it’s worth the hype, it’s just the 6 month old Galaxy s, but thicker, with a curved display, an NFC chip and Android 2.3. TO be honest, the Galaxy s has the more important things: HD video recording and a microSD card slot. Still, it’s a great phone, i just think Google should have waited till phones started releasing with 2 cores so that it could be more powerful, they also should have kept the microSD card slot and the dual microphones of the original nexus one. And practically every smartphone for that price (and even many below it) have HD video recording.

Jackson on December 27, 2010 12:07 PM

Between the 3, I would go for the nexus S since I’m a big android fan. And it comes with android 2.3!

themkc on December 27, 2010 12:58 PM

And hopefully should be a good kickstart of an amazing new site! Love the original anythingbutipod site, so good luck to this (relatively new) one!

how about we start spamming ? , i dun want to lose these awesome girls , i mean phones . get in another person hand

Loving the Nexus S, just wish it has a micro SD card slot, then i could bump up the memory to 48GB!!!!!!

sonorguy on December 27, 2010 1:37 PM

Personally, I think the HD7 is sexy as hell, especially with the new UI.

Strider_Auz on December 27, 2010 2:19 PM

Sweet! Now that WP7 is here my Zune needs to take a back seat! Bring on a handset I say :)

I will take a nexus S

Rob Schoenfeld on December 27, 2010 4:37 PM

Sure I’ll comment for a phone drawing. (Com’n Dell Venue Pro). I’m all glad to see anythingbut branching out and offering more content. Now if only we could get a podcast.

Ariel Herrera on December 27, 2010 4:52 PM

Im kind of starting to like the venue pro after I read a review about it

Chad on December 27, 2010 4:56 PM

I’ve checked out the HD7, and that huge screen is awesome. But I’m sold on Android. If they would release the HD7 with Android on it, that would be the ultimate. I know you can put android on it, but I don’t think it would be the same as factory would. So, either the Nexus S or the HD7 is my choice.

taikaw on December 27, 2010 6:50 PM

Damn, I’ve never had a Smart Phone before, but the Windows 7 phones look pretty slick!

Mark89 on December 27, 2010 6:51 PM

Please pick me,really need one of this

This phones are stunnning and also none of them screen bigger than 4.00 inch so its nice because I hate huge screen phones like Droid X.. since I need huge pocket for it :P..And also Nexus S comes with NIC chip built in..which is AWESOME!!

Wow! Been with anythingbutipod for years – they helped me make the decision to buy my first DAP, the iriver T10 in 2006, an then the ZHD last year – so the ultimate creation of this site is fantastic! You guys really have come a long way and I give you the best of luck with your new site and new endeavor.

Relyt on December 28, 2010 1:12 AM

More thoughts: Is this the technical first post on this site, and are the others are just reposts of articles initially posted on anythingbutipod.com?

Toshi on December 28, 2010 2:28 AM

Good luck to all!

Arwell Y. Real on December 28, 2010 2:35 AM

I don’t have a new phone yet. I don’t like iphones, so this site would be useful along with gsmarena. Good luck to everyone.

Do these devices do music playback as well? I am in the market for a nice mp3 player/video player. Cool website!

Corey on December 28, 2010 3:39 AM

Man, I really want WinMo 7 to become a mature, viable platform. It’s nice to see something interesting and different while still being legitimately powerful.

Relyt on December 28, 2010 4:18 AM

@Rick – yes, they all do. WP7 actually has a media app based upon the ZuneHD’s.

Relyt on December 28, 2010 4:19 AM

@Corey – Same here. It is entering at such a higher level then Android or iOS did. It just has so much potential – all it has to do is go mainstream and I think it will own the market!

Spencer P on December 28, 2010 4:47 AM

Chances are getting smaller and smaller… Oh well, It’s certainly worth a shot! I love all three of these phones, particularly the Nexus S.. Although I do want to give the HD7 a shot to make up for the HD2′s failure.

Eric2112 on December 28, 2010 5:40 AM

I hope WP7 does well, like what corey said it’s certainly different, especially in a design perspective. I think once Microsoft gets the little things right, like with the upcoming update, things will start looking up for the platform.

Nimish shah on December 28, 2010 6:44 AM

SerialSucider on December 28, 2010 8:42 AM

From my perspective, it appears that the Windows 7 phone is gorgeous… But! I demo’d one at my local Future Shop and must say, it’s a bit buggy and slow (almost like a prototype). An update must and shall be released!

Juozas on December 28, 2010 8:42 AM

I’m still hoping for Nexus S.

Cam on December 28, 2010 10:57 AM

@SerialSucider I tried the Dell Venue Pro and it seemed to scroll and feel slower compared to the HD7. I don’t know if it was just that particular phone at that store or what, but the HD7 is definitely my favorite WP7 device.

Damo Pedler on December 28, 2010 12:25 PM

They are all amazing phones, Really want to try out a Nexus S, or have a play with WP7 on the Venue Pro! The HD7 does not interest me as much as the others.

Relyt on December 28, 2010 1:59 PM

Question @Grahm: can these phones be used without a contract, or does a paying plan have to be instituted with each one?

UV on December 28, 2010 3:08 PM

Sweeeet. What a way to open up a site!

OL1983 on December 28, 2010 3:18 PM

So guys which one of these phones do you think is the best for music?

fub23 on December 28, 2010 6:12 PM

i would love to win one of these because all my bags just got lost with more than 1000 dollars of brand new stuff (gifts, presents, stuff for me) and most off my clothes etc. BTW, when someone wins this, do they get a choice of which phone they want or do you give them a random one, or the one of your choice?

I wish this contest would end sooner than 15th of January. Nexus FTW!

Yazad on December 29, 2010 8:55 AM

@Ariel Herrera
I think the Nexus S will be best for listening to music for two reasons:
1. The Nexus S has Samsung’s Audio Components inside, which are very good for a phone.
2. Android allows you to download tons of music player apps. There are excellent one’s such as PowerAMP. Here is the abiPhone review: http://anythingbutiphone.com/296
Hope I helped :)

@Relyt,
I want to know the same thing, do we have to use these on contract?

Yazad on December 29, 2010 9:02 AM

@Rick, Windows Phone 7 has a music app similar to that on the Zune HD, whilst Android has a music player app that an be downloaded for just $4.99 and it is by far the best music player app available. Here is the anythingbutiphone review of the app: http://anythingbutiphone.com/296
Hope I Helped :)

Yazad on December 29, 2010 9:10 AM

@Ketul
Sorry to burst your bubble but the Dell venue pro has a 4.1″ screen whilst the HTC HD7 has a 4.3″ screen.

Yazad on December 29, 2010 9:13 AM

@Chad, there is a HD7 with Android on it. It’s called the HTC Desire HD. It has a 4.3 inch screen, unibody aluminium construction (instead of the HD7′s plastic), Android, HTC Sense UI, 8 mp camera, dual LED flash etc. Here is the link to it: http://www.htc.com/www/product/desirehd/overview.html

Lucien Dominick G. Tiojanco on December 30, 2010 2:13 AM

Although I am a Samsung fan, I would still prefer HTC’s HD7 over Google Nexus S because of Windows Phone 7. I know it’s not a popular OS, however, I have high hopes for it. I sort of wish they used Samsung’s Hummingbird SOC over Qualcomm’s Snapdragon SOC as reference hardware.

PS: All Windows Phones use the first generation 1 GHz Snapdragon Qualcomm processor.

Toshi on December 30, 2010 2:26 AM

I still think that the nexus s is an interesting looking phone, in a good way! i wonder how that curved glass turned out

macilaci457 on December 30, 2010 9:47 AM

I like big screen phones. Especially the ones with good camera. I couldn’t choose i think. But taking in my experience, the Nexus S is what tickleing me. :-)

macilaci457 on December 30, 2010 9:50 AM

I never used an android phone actually. But those new WP7 phones makes me disappointed.
Maybe if they will be considered as more professional like the WP6.5 was. It all depends on the manufacturers, and software developers.

Yazad on December 30, 2010 10:57 AM

@BL93
Actually the Nexus S uses a Super AMOLED screen. It’s slightly different from the normal AMOLED. It had less air gaps, and the touch sensor is on the AMOLED so that the phone is thinner and contrast improves, as do the colours. Another great thing about Super AMOLED is that it has improved sunlight legibility over normal AMOLED and OLED displays. It’s really good, and in the sunlight, colours don’t looked washed out like they used too. Other phones that use this excellent display include the Samsung Wave S8500 and the Samsung Galaxy S series (i900, Captivate, Continuum, Vibrant etc).

Yazad on December 30, 2010 10:59 AM

@Ariel Herrera

I really like the Nexus S too, if I win I would choose that.

Brian on December 31, 2010 12:29 AM

Well, once they’re used for 90 days on t mobile you can have them unlocked. Not sure if the ones that are in the contest are already unlocked.

Unlocked would be ideal for me.

Cowon>iPod on December 31, 2010 2:26 AM

The competition is intense, but I’m gonna throw my chance in. Since it’s already past Christmas, happy New Years!
(If I do win by some chance, it’ll replace my 4 year-old LG Shine)
BTW, I got J3 instead of D3; D3 looks like a prototype for future pmps, so I’m going to wait until Cowon perfects it! ^^

Joe on December 31, 2010 3:18 AM

i guess you can choose from there 3 if they are giving one away.

Eric Lee on January 1, 2011 7:50 PM

Time to update my bb bold.

SerialSucider on January 1, 2011 7:56 PM

Hello anythingbutistuff people. Great to see you launch a new site. I’m sure this will be a big success for you as I was blown away by the content and community over at anythingbutipod.com.
Those are three great phones. As much as I like WP7, I’d probably choose the NexusS. But these phone manufacturers are going to have to learn 16GB not enough for a $500+ smartphone.

bingofuel on January 1, 2011 8:28 PM

Happy New Years ABI readers! At least our alarm clocks went off this morning! :D

Ketul on January 1, 2011 10:01 PM

I really wish I could attend CES 2011..because from what I have heard so far..Microsoft is really holding something up its sleeve and also I think Verizon will be announcing 1st 4G LTE phone..which would be pretty kool..

Confispect on January 1, 2011 10:22 PM

Agreed, can’t make it this year though arrgh.

Strider_Auz on January 1, 2011 10:30 PM

Steve Ballmer has the CES keynote address in 2011 – so expect some major announcement (date for WP7 updates I’m hoping) Bring it on MS :)

Globiboulga on January 1, 2011 11:58 PM

I am in… I’m a bit baffled by the contest though. Obvioulsy this thread has over 400 comments… Maybe contribution to the forum would have been a fairer, more useful way to give those away… Just sayin’

Ariel Herrera on January 2, 2011 12:01 AM

Happy new year guys
anyways i really hope these are unlocked

Globiboulga on January 2, 2011 12:15 AM

BTW, amazing to see that the HD7 is not that bigger than the other two devices. I though it’d be much larger to be honest…

Enzo, do you intent to review the Samsoung?

Toshi on January 2, 2011 1:21 AM

The nexus s seems like such a sweet phone. i would gladly take it as an upgrade :)

Thierry Giguere on January 2, 2011 2:32 AM

Is it because of the interface, the settings, or is the windows phone screen a lot brighter than the other two?

Jason Lee on January 2, 2011 2:40 AM

It would be SO GREAT if I can get any of these phones. Times are hard right now and it would be awesome if a phone was given to me for free!
Merry Christmas to the ABi team and all the members!

AA on January 2, 2011 2:54 AM

@Thierry Giguere, i think its just because the screen is LED, not LCD

MR. A on January 2, 2011 4:18 AM

Happy New Years Forgot CES was coming up !!

Jimmy on January 2, 2011 4:41 AM

need some meego hype!

TheSkunkMan on January 2, 2011 5:54 AM

USE CAPS FOR MORE HYPE! I THINK THATS HOW IT WORKS JIMMY!!!!1ONE!!

Derrick on January 2, 2011 6:52 AM

Anything but I-FREIKIN-PHONE… i despise apple… WINDOWS ALL THE WAY!!!!

Yazad on January 2, 2011 7:12 AM

It would be great if you could review the Nexus S :)

Spencer P on January 2, 2011 8:16 AM

It really is hard for anyone to afford these phones right now, especially if your contract isn’t up. And by the time it finally is, something better will have come out. What you’re doing is really going to make someone happy!

prince wolf on January 2, 2011 10:28 AM

VENUE PRO VENUE PRO!!! another phone would be nice too!! haha

SerialSucider on January 2, 2011 1:33 PM

The nexus s seems like such a sweet phone. i would gladly take it as an upgrade :)

EnderExx on January 2, 2011 4:41 PM

Yeah. I’d sure be nice to toss my HTC Hero, jumped on the android bandwagon a bit early and have been rocking a slow cpu ever since.

Sid Adams on January 2, 2011 6:27 PM

I really don’t think contour screens will catch on. it just seems wrong to me.

Weier on January 2, 2011 7:41 PM

My only chance to move on from my 5 year old prepaid motorola phone from t-mobile that’s not even being sold anymore! :(

pepernoot on January 2, 2011 7:48 PM

Sad to know that I never win anything that’s worth winning. So I’m pretty sure I won’t win this either.

:(

Ketul on January 2, 2011 8:18 PM

Anyone going to CES 2011? I would really appreciate it if you could share some awesome pix and also videos from Zune Booth

shelly on January 2, 2011 8:34 PM

This is my comment though I never win anything :-) I would like to leave the Apple/Itunes world, and would appreciate your help in doing so :-)

@Ian I don’t think so, sorry :-/

Strider_Auz on January 3, 2011 1:34 AM

LOLZ to my sister who was not woken by her i-alarm in the new year !!! hehehehe Shd have bought a WP7 device :)

lick on January 3, 2011 1:40 AM

sucks for those who made the wrong choice in buying an idevice, WP7 is the future!!

dramallama56 on January 3, 2011 2:30 AM

I need a new phone, mine is so old…but my father refuses to upgrade.
I’ve watched reviews for all of those so just lookin gets me excited XD

windspear on January 3, 2011 4:13 AM

Would deff like to have one of those smartphones either the android or Windows phone 7 OSs, but now its not much of a like but sort of as a need, as im going into photography and i need a phone that would be more friendly to opening up business connection, my lg rumour doesn’t cut it, :P

Toshi on January 3, 2011 4:38 AM

my phone started dying today, one of these devices would really help me out!

what an absolutely great lineup! the android and wp7 show a lot of promise this year

Spencer P on January 3, 2011 11:22 AM

Still going strong! All of these phones look fantastic; looking forward to reviews!

SerialSucider on January 3, 2011 12:33 PM

6 Days to CES !!!! WP7 news to dominate the conference I’m sure :)

Yazad on January 3, 2011 2:02 PM

Cant wait t read about CES 2011, shame I can’t go :(

Thib on January 3, 2011 2:34 PM

Thank you, I love contests ! Best of luck for your new site, I just came back from holidays with some hot stuff, will tell more on abipod :D.

Brian on January 3, 2011 3:54 PM

@TheSkunkMan I don’t think that worked, lol, nice try though

Yazad on January 3, 2011 4:57 PM

@People at ABI,
It would be great if you could make an ABI’s top 5 2010 for phones, but it’s only been a short time so this may be difficult, also where is the ABI’s top 5 for MP3 players???

Machiventa on January 3, 2011 5:33 PM

I hope the ABI mods are eligible!!

SerialSucider on January 3, 2011 6:02 PM

Anyone going to CES 2011? I would really appreciate it if you could share some awesome pix and also videos from Zune Booth

Ariel Herrera on January 3, 2011 6:17 PM

@Yazad thats a great idea,umm i think they have abipod’s top mp3 players

DragonBottles on January 3, 2011 8:25 PM

Wow, sounds brilliant! I’ve wanted a smartphone for a long time. I’m still stuck with a rubbish Nokia because my Dad insisted they’re easy to use. He’s correct, but there’s nothing you can do with a bloody Nokia.

Juozas on January 3, 2011 9:16 PM

Nexus for me.

Brett_val on January 3, 2011 10:16 PM

I’m not really the smartphone type of guy, but I’d love to play around with one. Maybe I’ll be convinced to using one on a daily basis like most of my friends do. In for the win :) and good luck with the new site.

@Yazad ; I think you mean the editor’s choice list, it’s on the abi homepage in blue.

Weier on January 3, 2011 11:46 PM

@yazad
those would be located on the right hand side of ABI, i suppose. perhaps not necessarily ranked, but the editor’s picks :P

elton on January 3, 2011 11:58 PM

i think the htc looks better then the rest

David C on January 4, 2011 1:31 AM

Hopfully one of those phones can replace my brocken htc touch diamond2 :)

gastman on January 4, 2011 1:48 AM

Still not 15th!

kratonator on January 4, 2011 2:09 AM

Wow, I didn’t even know that anythingbutiphone.com was up and running. Nice!

spoon on January 4, 2011 3:19 AM

the nexus is so sweet

Meeleex on January 4, 2011 4:31 AM

Just found out about the new site. A great way to kick off, especially for the new year.

Toshi on January 4, 2011 4:52 AM

damn, the number of comments on this is really growing, a great way to start a site, get tons of subscribers! :)

Fausto on January 4, 2011 10:49 AM

They all look great.

macilaci457 on January 4, 2011 12:26 PM

I remember abi contest before were also great.
Do you remember the “design your MP3 player” contest?

TheSkunkMan on January 4, 2011 3:27 PM

Is a windows phone really worth a post for a chance to win? I thought it was just a punishment for spamming this thing.

SerialSucider on January 4, 2011 3:44 PM

It’s about time this branch appeared. ABIpod seemed to be running out of subject matter, as dedicated PMP’s are giving way to all-in-one phones.

Tony V on January 4, 2011 5:49 PM

Want the DVP really really bad, BUT all the problems dell has had with the release of this phone, and not really noing the RAM on this device kinda sucks, just waiting to pull the trigger to purchase it, but other then that love the site and the review on the phone.

Oliver J on January 4, 2011 8:34 PM

HTC HD7 seems like the absolute superphone pre CES. Let’s see what other great phones will be announced at this years CES!

Roger.H. on January 4, 2011 8:57 PM

I love this site, great reviews, good community and now this, great chance for people who can’t afford one these beautys!

AlexMcK on January 4, 2011 9:35 PM

I’m not sure about the current crop of mobile phones — their processors and screens may be getting massive boosts, but battery technology is lagging behind. I just hope there is an innovation in the next few years which will alleviate this growing problem.

Ariel Herrera on January 4, 2011 9:53 PM

@Oliver J
hopefully awesome things come out :)

elton on January 5, 2011 12:13 AM

i know i wont win so i give up

David on January 5, 2011 12:31 AM

My Sprint Samsung Moment does just about everything accept receive calls consistantly. Winning a new phone would be great! Do the Windows phones emulate DOS, or desktop versions of Windows, or is it just it’s own system? MS usually tries to make everything work together, so hopefully a Windows phone can run *some* of the desktop software?

zulu on January 5, 2011 1:46 AM

tried out the surround today, and it is totally kick ass!! i think imma go for the hd7

Weier on January 5, 2011 2:37 AM

yeah, totally looking forward to those dual core processors in CES, for tmobile especially. hopefully the new wave won’t be terribly more expensive

AZAmazed on January 5, 2011 2:53 AM

Would love to be able to switch a phone.
Seems like a great way to kick off a website as well.

Toshi on January 5, 2011 4:29 AM

Just curious, but those of your who have windows 7 devices, how do they stack up to android?

sebastian on January 5, 2011 6:39 AM

sounds good

Krist on January 5, 2011 7:57 AM

Awesome way to start the new site. Anything but Apple.

Roger.H. on January 5, 2011 10:36 AM

Just read the Message that a Developer overclocked The Nexus S to 1.3 Ghz. At the Time the Nexus S is the first Android Phone with 16 GB Flash- I never can have enough Memory, Google bring out a 32 GB Version, or better 64 GB and SDXC Support, that would be fantastic, your complete Music Collection on such a Small Device!

SerialSucider on January 5, 2011 11:30 AM

Wow, sounds brilliant! I’ve wanted a smartphone for a long time. I’m still stuck with a rubbish Nokia because my Dad insisted they’re easy to use. He’s correct, but there’s nothing you can do with a bloody Nokia nowadays.

vēer on January 5, 2011 1:55 PM

556 comments?! Whoa!
Either way, I too wish to enter this contest, of all phones above Id go with either Dell or HTC, not Nexus S and only because I dont quite like rounded shapes of it.

TheSkunkMan on January 5, 2011 3:13 PM

hola

windspear on January 5, 2011 3:14 PM

second comment!!! man, those smarthphones would b really useful right now, even as a temp camera!! my rumour’s camera isnt cutting it, and im without an slr for the next few months, please i really need one of those phones!!

CAPTAIN_CAPSLOCK on January 5, 2011 4:14 PM

Well ain’t that a nice startoff! To make me really love the site, why don’t you guys use the shared competences with anythingbutipod and make some pmp/phone comparisons? Been waiting to see something like that for quite a while, especially now that you get the zune software on WP7! And the more phones can do the more oversized my cowon s9 actually feels – if it only didnt sound so gorgeous…..

cheers!

Yazad on January 5, 2011 4:22 PM

@Ariel Herrera,
Sorry, I forgot to write 2010, it hadn’t come out yet on the 3rd and last year it came out early December so i was wondering where it was haha :P

Yazad on January 5, 2011 4:23 PM

@Brett_val,
I just suggested the top 5 because abipod has a top 5 :)

Yazad on January 5, 2011 4:24 PM

@Weier,
I just suggested the top 5 because abipod has a top 5 :)

Yazad on January 5, 2011 4:27 PM

@TheSkunkMan,
Windows Phone 7 is an excellent, fast, fluid and sophisticated OS.

Yazad on January 5, 2011 4:29 PM

@elton,
never give up :)

Yazad on January 5, 2011 4:30 PM

@Roger.H.
The Samsung Galaxy S has up to 16GB built in plus support for Micro SD cards up to 32GB for a total of 48GB :)

McGyyver on January 5, 2011 6:09 PM

Like the idea of the site as I’m searching for a new phone in the next year!

sebastian on January 5, 2011 7:07 PM

I could really do with a new phone.

gobluetwo on January 5, 2011 7:57 PM

Excellent promotion! Not sure which i’d choose…

Brian on January 5, 2011 9:00 PM

Very exciting contest for very exciting phones on a very exciting new website!

SerialSucider on January 5, 2011 11:37 PM

it’s a shame the Nexus S won’t be getting Honeycomb anytime soon (or ever for that matter)

Spencer P on January 6, 2011 12:04 AM

Looking forward to Jan 15th! I’d love to try the HD7, but I don’t know.. I’m pretty loyal to android.

dragnandy on January 6, 2011 2:29 AM

still looking forward to who the winner is!

Ian Revereza on January 6, 2011 2:58 AM

I’d like to see a visual representation as to how which phone people would prefer to get if they win this contest.

Xantor on January 6, 2011 3:07 AM

Awesome giveaway. Thanks guys!

Ketul on January 6, 2011 4:45 AM

CES 2011 Starts this thursday…I am really excited..Some of really exciting things are coming out this CES

Toshi on January 6, 2011 4:50 AM

Guys, what other devices do you think are gonna be released at ces this week?

Victor on January 6, 2011 5:57 AM

dang just found out about this today haha…

TheSkunkMan on January 6, 2011 3:30 PM

So… How about this contest?

firsthand on January 6, 2011 4:32 PM

Wow, a lot of comments is posted, lol

pajjap on January 6, 2011 4:57 PM

been wanting to get my hands on a dell venue pro… :D

sebastian on January 6, 2011 5:30 PM

Still waiting for the 15th. :D

Sam31 on January 6, 2011 6:19 PM

Nice stuff, here and great we finally have a anythingbutphone.com, been a while I was waiting for this.
Keep up the good work guys!

sam

bingofuel on January 6, 2011 8:06 PM

Jan 6 and no new articles on the site since the 29th? Boo urns. Was hoping for some eye candy from CES, will have to follow CNET instead :(

Roger.H. on January 6, 2011 10:09 PM

@Alexis S: The Technology is there- in the Labs they could recharge a Li-Ion Battery within 10 Seconds, think about that! There are also lots of other Inventions in this Sector, but the Producers are still waiting to bring out better Battery Technology- Maybe because the Production Costs are still to big, so the devices would be too expansive.

Maegan on January 7, 2011 2:12 AM

ohhh Nexus S… gimmie gimmie.

Frank on January 7, 2011 3:57 AM

Microsoft just announced copy and paste support for WP7 to be released soon. The only other biggie missing is multitasking now…

Victor on January 7, 2011 5:07 AM

Nexus S ftw!!!

Toshi on January 7, 2011 5:49 AM

The venue pro looks kinda bulky just cause of that slide down keyboard, but at least you have a lot more screen space when you type and stuff =]

Yazad on January 7, 2011 8:44 AM

8 days left

Yazad on January 7, 2011 8:45 AM

@Ian Revereza
I’d take the Nexus S

Yazad on January 7, 2011 8:48 AM

@sebastian
i’m sure everyone here is, including me haha :P

Yazad on January 7, 2011 8:51 AM

@Toshi,
That bulk is the only thing that annoys me about the venue pro, but it’s a slider, so technically it’s not too thick, totally agree with you :)

TheSkunkMan on January 7, 2011 2:24 PM

Copy and paste technology… sounds revolutionary

sebastian on January 7, 2011 8:17 PM

Well anything, is better than the phone I have.

Khem on January 7, 2011 8:28 PM

Awesome contest. Its sure to attract more people. It got a lurker like me to comment!

Juozas on January 7, 2011 9:57 PM

I’ll take Nexus S, please.

Ketul on January 7, 2011 10:06 PM

Wait are they giving away all 3 phones or just one? I mean 3 winners or just 1 :p

bob on January 8, 2011 3:22 AM

still a week to go. fingers crossed!

Toshi on January 8, 2011 4:38 AM

at&t really has to step up their game with their android phones cause soon enough they’re not gonna be the only ones with iphones.

Brian on January 8, 2011 5:33 AM

600 comments on this post alone – the chance of me winning now is practically zero :P

Brian on January 8, 2011 5:35 AM

@TheSkunkMan Well, if you think about it, copy and paste is kind of hard to code well, as it requires data to be loaded into the RAM and be able to be placed once again somewhere else, not counting the fact that text formatting has to be taken care of in the process (which could be lost across applications)

Chris on January 8, 2011 5:39 AM

really sad there’s no iphone giveaway… (too easy?)

Spencer P on January 8, 2011 6:18 AM

Chris, I’m really hoping that comment was sarcastic.. Anyways, competition’s still going strong. I’m beginning to slide from the Nexus to the Venue Pro.. I would love to have a physical keyboard. Hm..

John D on January 8, 2011 7:31 AM

Can you use a bluetooth keyboard with any of these smartphones?

Yazad on January 8, 2011 8:01 AM

@Ketul
just one winner, i think

Rodrigo on January 8, 2011 9:03 AM

I’ve always referred to anythingbutipod before getting a new player or even to stay updated with the new brands in the market. I must confess that I saw a post there about this website and thought that I should check it out – and also give it a try at this promotion!

Thanks and keep up the good work at both websites!

Strider_Auz on January 8, 2011 9:11 AM

IS this comp still on? Damn I missed a few days…bloody work lol.

Roger.H. on January 8, 2011 10:14 AM

@Yazad: I know, it has, but I never can have enough memory,still waiting for a phone which has a Memory of 250-500 GB,or even more,
that will be great! Still wondering why theres not even one single android phone on the market with 32 GB Flash. The Nokia N96 is 3 Years old and already had 16 GB Flash + 32 GB SD, now 2-3 Years later in 2010/11 we can see the FIRST Androids with 16 GB.
Sad but true

sebastian on January 8, 2011 5:08 PM

Yes, it is just one winner.

infernus on January 8, 2011 5:27 PM

As sexy as the Nexus S is, I’m still not liking current gen OLED/AMOLED screens. That and I already have an Android phone, so it’d likely be one of the WP7 devices for me. So sweet seeing them at one of the Engadget shows.

TheSkunkMan on January 8, 2011 7:27 PM

@Brian Good point, always wondered why all smart phones didn’t have it

AR on January 9, 2011 12:47 AM

so many comments :(

Brian on January 9, 2011 3:16 AM

@AR and so little chance to win, lol

Overlord Nadrian on January 9, 2011 3:36 AM

Seems as though I’m a tad late to the party. Oh well, I can’t do much more than give it a shot anyway, can I? ;)

The only phone that really interests me is the Nexus S. It looks really sweet.

Oh, and congrats and good luck with the new site, of course! :)

Ariel Herrera on January 9, 2011 4:37 AM

@Spencer P
i would like a physical keyboard but ive seen reviews where they complain how the phone is to big

Spencer P on January 9, 2011 7:01 AM

@Ariel Herrera. Yeah, good point. I don’t mind wide, but bulky (thick) Can be an issue. I dunno

Patrick on January 9, 2011 3:46 PM

Gee, the Nexus S is nice.

John Ruiz on January 9, 2011 4:59 PM

I think the Dell Venue Pro is a nice design.

TheSkunkMan on January 9, 2011 5:58 PM

How are the batteries on all these phones? It seems like no decent smart phone can last over a day.

Toshi on January 9, 2011 7:02 PM

@TheSkunkMan yeah word, it would suck if you forgot to charge over night. People who aren’t that informed about smartphones are also more inclined to feel that theres something “wrong” with the phone

jmx747 on January 9, 2011 7:16 PM

Super awesome! iv always wanted to try one of these phones to mess with!

LaRainette on January 9, 2011 7:20 PM

Open to all countries. We will send it to anyone that can receive mail

I LOVE YOU !
Every time there is a contest like this it’s always US only, I get cry alone while not getting any Nexus S awesomeness.

The Nexus S isn’t even available in France yet !
ME WANTS IT.
Stock Gingerbread = epic win.

Ketul on January 9, 2011 9:19 PM

I am really psyched about this..I am also really excited about some of the phones that came out of CES like Motorola 4G with dual processors YAYAY

Roger.H. on January 9, 2011 10:40 PM

@Serial Suicider: I don’t think so, it depends on the Nokia Model you are using, They made a few smartphones with lots of features and multimedia stuff, maybe sometime the designed a little bit to far away from the market, and made decisions which came out to be wrong, but for example look at the Nokia N8, it’s a great phone, with features that not even one single other phone has, like usb on the go, maybe the best camera phone on the market nowadays, and symbian’s not that old fashioned like lots of websites are claiming, you have to test it out. If you feel good with it go for it, it’s great that we still have the symbian alternative.

Robert on January 10, 2011 12:31 AM

The Nexus S looks like the real deal.

Toshi on January 10, 2011 2:30 AM

just a question for all: can the nexus s be used on at&t as well?

Braden on January 10, 2011 3:43 AM

I’m so excited for Verizon to be getting WP7!!!

sebastian on January 10, 2011 4:12 AM

@Toshi
So is battery life not so good on these phones?

Spencer P on January 10, 2011 5:03 AM

Still going strong, I see. You know, when you consider that people actually win the lottery, our chances aren’t absolutely terrible. Still leaning towards the Nexus S! Such a gorgeous phone, and I’ve already gotten used to android. I wonder how hard it’ll be to get used to the contour..

Kevin Paul on January 10, 2011 5:36 AM

The HD7′s display is amazing and i really hope i win! Good luck to everyone!

Elan Tombs on January 10, 2011 6:16 AM

After making the htc G1 run froyo 2.0.1, it just leaves me hungry for more to see what more memory can handle. Does anyone know if they can upgrade the memory in that with a similar laptop ram chip? That would be a feat worth while I think.

windspear on January 10, 2011 1:32 PM

The omnia 7 is truly a beautiful piece of hardware, would love to get that phone, especially since none of the cellphone providers here in canada will carry that phone!!!!

Rhytenow on January 10, 2011 2:03 PM

I would absolutely love to have a Nexus S. My Mytouch3g is on it’s last legs. Only 2 buttons work the back key and the search. The green and red phone buttons don’t work and neither do the home or menu buttons.

TheSkunkMan on January 10, 2011 3:18 PM

@sebastian I dont think we know, but id assume its the same as most smartphones

Sean Campbell on January 10, 2011 5:50 PM

AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!! I want this phone oh so bad!!!! I want the HD7 I just love the new Windows os it’s a thing of beauty. I am loyal to this site and I would love to win that phone! THANKS ANYTHINGBUTIPHONE!!!!

Philip De Jesus on January 10, 2011 7:13 PM

I sure wish to have a Dell Venue Pro as it’s the sexiest WP7 available. I was just wondering if any of you folks know when this wonderful phone OS becomes available in the Philippines?

Ketul on January 10, 2011 10:34 PM

@Philip De Jesus

You could use it in Philippines but you wont be able to use marketplace to download music, apps and that kinds things..

Brian on January 10, 2011 10:38 PM

Are all the phones T-mobile? Cause if they are, I’ll have to unlock them…

TheRealBlackRanger on January 10, 2011 10:52 PM

Wow great site, i was hoping for something like this.

AR on January 11, 2011 12:48 AM

5 days left, 640 comments posted, chance of winning: >2%.

Still hopeful though!!

Jairzinho on January 11, 2011 1:30 AM

Ok, used to hate the ipod and now even more !!!! Still d2 meister!!!

Toshi on January 11, 2011 4:06 AM

Only a few days left! :O

Spencer P on January 11, 2011 4:37 AM

Oh, dear… I just reread the original article and something hit me I hadn’t noticed before.. They said comment on ANY article on the site to enter, while I thought only comments on this article were eligible. Chances of winning just went way down. Oh well, still hoping! Nexus S if somehow, I do win!

sebastian on January 11, 2011 6:28 AM

So close!

Ziv on January 11, 2011 8:45 AM

WOW! great prices.

Yazad on January 11, 2011 1:53 PM

@LaRainette
I know how you feel, it’s always US only and that really annoys me. Thank you abi. None of these hones are available where i live and probably won’t be for a while. I don’t think there is a single windows phone 7 phone available where i live. :(

Yazad on January 11, 2011 1:55 PM

@Robert
Totally agree…I want the Nexus S!!!

Yazad on January 11, 2011 1:57 PM

@sebastian
battery life isn’t rubbish, but it isnt superb. the Samsung Wave though has an incredible battery life. Thanks to the 1500 mAH battery and 3.3″ (small) super AMOLED display for that :P

Yazad on January 11, 2011 1:58 PM

@Spencer P
The contour display certainly helps, but it isn’t obvious. You barely feel/notice it.

Yazad on January 11, 2011 2:01 PM

I need a new phone soon, just a few days left. My Sony Ericsson is dying :(
Having such an outdated phone makes me feel old :P

Yazad on January 11, 2011 2:05 PM

Still awaiting a Nexus S review, actually i’m kinda waiting for a new article, it’s been weeks! It would also be nice if you could compare the three phones above to make it easier for people who can’t choose between them.

TheSkunkMan on January 11, 2011 3:18 PM

So you could post on any article not just this one?

Randal on January 11, 2011 4:09 PM

Cant wait for Jan 15th

Randal on January 11, 2011 4:10 PM

@Brian, im sure they’re unlocked. If locked, just unlock and thats it

sebastian on January 11, 2011 4:11 PM

@theskunkman
Yes. Any article on this site.

Randal on January 11, 2011 4:11 PM

@TheSkunkMan, any article of course

sebastian on January 11, 2011 4:12 PM

@Randal
It would be nice if they come unlocked.

Brandon on January 11, 2011 5:11 PM

good luck everyone, these are nice phones :P.

hugh sandoe on January 11, 2011 6:30 PM

that would be nice to have

Stekken on January 11, 2011 9:37 PM

I’m properly excited about the new Motorola phone. Tegra 2 and 1 gig of ram sounds delicious, but I wouldn’t say no to a free Nexus S… ;)

Robert on January 11, 2011 9:47 PM

Windows Phones look good but they’re coming into the game a bit late I think.

k_j on January 11, 2011 10:50 PM

Back off guys, I GOT THIS!

k_j on January 11, 2011 10:55 PM

oh btw, it should be ‘our’ instead of a winner at random will be chosen then, so be sure to be here during ‘out’ CES coverage.

John Weaver on January 11, 2011 11:01 PM

I love the Dell Venue Pro! Pick me, pick me!

Ketul on January 12, 2011 12:16 AM

I wonder how long does the battery of this gigantic phones really last :-)

Toshi on January 12, 2011 1:12 AM

Wow, the number of comments on this page is increasing exponentially! well not literally of course!

Rob on January 12, 2011 1:46 AM

Good luck to all.

kingpin on January 12, 2011 2:23 AM

@Ketul- Should last for a day with normal useage, so 9ish hours

almosttrae on January 12, 2011 4:12 AM

i still think the nexus s is the best!

Spencer P on January 12, 2011 5:09 AM

These days are passing by so quickly! it won’t be long before it’s over with. I’ve decided that as much as I’d like to give WP7 a shot, I really want to stick to android. So, Nexus S it is!

Yazad on January 12, 2011 3:33 PM

@TheSkunkMan
Yup :)

Yazad on January 12, 2011 3:33 PM

@sebastian I think the Nexus S comes ulocked

Yazad on January 12, 2011 3:36 PM

@almosttrae
Agreed :)

Yazad on January 12, 2011 3:37 PM

Nexus S= Great Screen, Tons of Apps, and Pure Android Experience…Winner for me!

sebastian on January 12, 2011 5:36 PM

@Yazad
Just the Nexus??

annoyingmouse on January 12, 2011 5:42 PM

“We will send it to anyone that can receive mail.”

I can receive mail! Count me in!

Dr.Strangelove on January 12, 2011 7:08 PM

Not to be nitpicky, but wouldnt these only work in the US?

retroDan on January 12, 2011 7:56 PM

Hi, I’m a regular reader of anything but ipod. congrats on the new site!

Ketul on January 12, 2011 8:45 PM

Cant wait man…Wait is killing me :p

sebastian on January 12, 2011 9:36 PM

Just three more days!!

Roger.H. on January 12, 2011 10:44 PM

Im really curious about the Sound Quality from The Nexus S. The predecessor wasn’t that inebriant. Signal to Noise Ratio was pretty poor, also the Distortion Factor was pretty high. Really hope that the S will be closer to 90 db S/N. CD-Quality should be standard and the minimum.

TheSkunkMan on January 12, 2011 11:07 PM

How do you guys think these phones will fair as a pmp?

ogiogi on January 12, 2011 11:59 PM

Don’t know about pmp but they would rock as video players :D

frelyt on January 13, 2011 12:12 AM

i await the news of my winning this contest

Moe on January 13, 2011 4:32 AM

I really want an HD7. Seriously, after almost four years with an iphone and sick of the UI. Was planing on purchasing a windows phone 7 device on my next upgrade anyhow.

sebastian on January 13, 2011 7:37 AM

I really could do with one of these new phones.

Vilai Yaansana on January 13, 2011 8:06 AM

1:One billion chance of winning… I think these odds favor me. :)

Joga on January 13, 2011 12:24 PM

here my chance. ;)

Fathoni on January 13, 2011 12:33 PM

hope it’s me. :)

Yazad on January 13, 2011 1:12 PM

@sebastan,
I think that’s what a comment near the beginning said, control f and search for the word unlocked, you might find your answer :)

Yazad on January 13, 2011 1:13 PM

Just 2 more days!!!

Yazad on January 13, 2011 1:16 PM

@TheSkunkMan
They will all do well
-Nexus S has the good sounding Samsung chips and you can buy a $5 app that replaces the stock android media player for an amazing one:http://anythingbutiphone.com/296. It also has support for loads of codecs and the Sper AMOLED screen is great for watching videos, slideshows, and viewing pics.
-Windows phone have the good sounding Zune chips (i’m assuming) and have the great zune media player built in

Ketul on January 13, 2011 4:30 PM

I wonder if Nexus S come already rooted or do we have to root it..Man I love rooting phone because it really boots its performance…

Moe on January 13, 2011 5:36 PM

Which is a better WP7 device, The Venue Pro or the HD7?

frelyt on January 13, 2011 6:20 PM

This contest is almost over!

Sebastian Granstrand on January 13, 2011 7:52 PM

Two more days, and hopefully a Nexus S finds its way to my doorstep. I can hope at least :)

macilaci457 on January 13, 2011 10:23 PM

It would be cool to have more articles to talk about.

TheSkunkMan on January 13, 2011 11:35 PM

Why do you need more articles when you have so many random posts to reply to here?

Lucien Dominick G. Tiojanco on January 14, 2011 12:54 AM

Woo-hoo! Just 2 more days to go. I’m wanting me an HTC HD 7… :-D

Austin P, on January 14, 2011 1:28 AM

wow well that’s sweet, I like comments..

sebastian on January 14, 2011 2:47 AM

Can’t wait for the announcement!

Spencer P on January 14, 2011 4:56 AM

Oh crap, I think I forgot yesterday! Oh, well. Good to see it’s still going strong. Nexus S!

Moe on January 14, 2011 5:27 AM

just realized both WP7 phones would be locked. Oh well not like I was going to win anyways. My chances after writing this post would be 3 in 707 so I shouldn’t bring my hopes up lol

Toshi on January 14, 2011 6:19 AM

just curious, but which carriers are teh WP7 phones on?

Yazad on January 14, 2011 6:52 AM

@macilaci457
agreed

Yazad on January 14, 2011 6:52 AM

@TheSkunkMan
good point

Yazad on January 14, 2011 6:55 AM

ONE DAY MORE! Really hope I win a Nexus S. But good luck to everybody.

JustinQ on January 14, 2011 8:11 AM

WOW
Look how long this page is
Anyway
Give me more articles so i can post more comments lol
I want me a Nexus S badly

Ziv on January 14, 2011 10:55 AM

Good luck everyone! just another day left.

TheSkunkMan on January 14, 2011 2:14 PM

Well that sucks if their locked

sebastian on January 14, 2011 4:19 PM

Hasn’t anyone cleared up if all these phones are unlocked or is just pure speculation?

Moe on January 14, 2011 4:27 PM

Both WP7 phones are locked, according to the author (In the comments). The Dell Venue Pro and the HTC HD7 would be locked to T-Mobile. I think but I’m not certain that the dell venue Pro can be used on AT&T (non 3G, however) . Nexus S’s are all unlocked out of the box

Jumanjiman on January 14, 2011 5:26 PM

Hey ive been following you guys since like forever on anythingbutipod but its cool you guys moved into this aspect of phones. It seems like media players have been falling and phones are taking over, Love your reviews hope for the best with this new site :0)

Frederick on January 14, 2011 5:32 PM

heheh it’s tomorrow! can’t wait!

Rob on January 14, 2011 6:45 PM

Very nice giveaways. Thanks

Steve Yagozinski on January 14, 2011 7:53 PM

Man I could use any of these phones! I’ve got an old Nokia and its killing me a little each day :(

Yazad on January 14, 2011 9:16 PM

It’s already the 15th for me. Wow so excited, yet so nervous. I feel kinda like I just sat an exam and i’m extremely curious to know whether I passed (or in this case won)

The DarkSide on January 14, 2011 9:41 PM

I saw you’re twitter feed – I gotta’ add another entry!!!

Nana Kwame on January 14, 2011 10:03 PM

What can I say? I want one lol

Brian on January 14, 2011 11:40 PM

720 comments… wow – I bet there have been more than 1000 comments from this contest alone.

sebastian on January 15, 2011 12:05 AM

Tomorrow is the day people.

frelyt on January 15, 2011 12:13 AM

oh boy

Ketul on January 15, 2011 1:29 AM

Just 1 more day guys..Cant waittt..Hope I won. LoL I have never won anything in my life before..

almosttrae on January 15, 2011 3:06 AM

sebastian on January 15, 2011 3:23 AM

Well… may the luckiest person win! Hope it’s me!!

Toshi on January 15, 2011 4:47 AM

OH DANG, its the last day. who’s gonna win?? thats what everyone wants to know!

Rom on January 15, 2011 4:53 AM

I want to own that Zune Phone :)

Spencer P on January 15, 2011 5:52 AM

Wow, that came a lot faster than I thought it would. I reconsidered.. I think I want a Windows 7 phone. So, HD7 or Venue pro.. AMOLED or a standard LCD.. Hm. Such a hard decision. (In case you want to see how drastic the difference really is.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTrmfc1It4E)

Robert on January 15, 2011 6:51 AM

All the phones have nice specs; I’ll will choose the android phone.

MJ on January 15, 2011 7:28 AM

Hmm, so now I got a 1/700 odd chance of winning my object of desire, the Dell Venue Pro. Tried all five US WP7 devices personally and loved it as much as the Focus. Also tried the Nexus one sometime ago, and apparently the Android UX has improved substantially since, although the S is plastic unlike the one.

Sebastian Granstrand on January 15, 2011 9:49 AM

Just another question before the contest ends; how can I see which bands is used in my country?

Juozas on January 15, 2011 10:18 AM

Is the contest over? If not, I choose Nexus S.

Yazad on January 15, 2011 11:07 AM

@Ketul
Haha :p me neither

TheSkunkMan on January 15, 2011 2:54 PM

Last chance today I guess. Goodluck

almosttrae on January 15, 2011 3:35 PM

i played with a nexus s at best buy, it was the best. i want it!

sebastian on January 15, 2011 4:34 PM

Dell Venue Pro for me.

Weier on January 15, 2011 6:14 PM

good luck guys, last day to play!

frelyt on January 15, 2011 6:19 PM

is there a winner yet?

Sebastian Granstrand on January 15, 2011 6:33 PM

I would assume the winner is announced sometimes next week. Being as it is Sunday tomorrow.

Yazad on January 15, 2011 6:50 PM

I’ve got to know now, i’m so desperate :P

sebastian on January 15, 2011 7:26 PM

But I thought the announcement was gonna be made today.

Ariel Herrera on January 15, 2011 7:36 PM

hopefully i win :D

Vy Nguyen on January 15, 2011 9:13 PM

Wow this is awesome. I only found out about it today :( Sure hope though :)

Ketul on January 15, 2011 9:24 PM

Cant wait to find out who won :P I have my fingers crossed..It would be my late christmas gift 8)

sebastian on January 16, 2011 12:28 AM

Still waiting. :D

pajjap on January 16, 2011 1:01 AM

I’m really excited as to who’s the lucky dude to win those phones…. I wish i’ll be one of them.. :)

sebastian on January 16, 2011 3:27 AM

Still no announcement?

Yazad on January 16, 2011 3:38 AM

@sebastian
I thought so too :(
Fingers crossed :)

sebastian on January 16, 2011 4:48 AM

We’ll I suppose we’re gonna have to wait then.

SerialSucider on January 16, 2011 1:51 PM

I can’t take the suspense!

Spencer P on January 16, 2011 4:53 PM

Gah.. I mean, I’m not really expecting to win, but I just want to know!

sebastian on January 16, 2011 5:24 PM

@Spencer P
Exactly.

caltemus on January 17, 2011 10:56 PM

Jon on January 29, 2011 5:43 AM

Sweet, I’m using a ghetto phone right now, so this would be nice.

Desneil on February 3, 2011 5:22 PM

I would def pick the HD7 because I already have a Galaxy S :) I want to see what experience Windows is claiming

Gregory Quevillon www.me on January 16, 2014 12:01 AM

I can not believe that voodoo has grown to the extend when you can use it to win lottery. I saw a comment online of a spell caster called LORD DIVA who helped me with a voodoo that make me win the powerball lottery of $85,000 he also told me that if i had go for the millions i would have win as well. But the problem was that you can only use the spell once, which means there is no second chance to play twice because it against voodoo said by the spiritual man. I was so grateful for this was something i never believe that it ever going to work but today i was able to pay my debts. It an amazing work this man is doing out there and i advice he keep on the good work for he is God sent to earth for the poor. The emails is lorddivalottovoodoo1@gmail.com

Megan Joel 887 on March 1, 2014 6:26 PM

Yesterday was a wonderful day for me as i contacted the great spell caster that everybody has been talking about. That he is the only way that can make you will lottery with voodoo powers. I am Megan Joel and i am from USA i recently saw a testimony of a spell caster who help people win lottery and i also decide to give it a try because i was told that he is one of the best and his work is 100% guarantee. I was so grateful when i contacted him for help and it take just 3days to get done with my spell and i won the lottery amount of $200000 last night, What more could i have expect from this great man? I am so grateful and that is why i am using this opportunity to also make sure that i share this secret with you so that you can also win the lottery like me. The email of this man is lorddivalottovoodoo11@gmail.com and the name is LORD DIVA
