CES: New Windows Phone 7 Calls In

Microsoft may be a rut in the smartphone market for now, but that does not mean it is entirely out of the race. Reviewers and pundits have nice things to say about Windows Phone 7, and more than a few of you Redmond Report readers are happy to give it a jingle. And there is more excitement about what Windows 8 technology will ultimately bring to the party.

AT&T is also upbeat. It announced at the Consumer Electronics Show this week in Las Vegas that it will sell a phone that seems more like a tablet. The HTC Titan II has a massive (at least for a phone) 4.7-inch display. That will look unsightly no matter what pocket you put it in.

What do you get for carrying this beast? Presumably easier typing and reading -- something I'd sure appreciate. You also get a 16-megapixel camera, auto-stabilization and some pretty cool zoom features.

What is your ideal mobile form factor? You tell me and I'll pass it along to the rest at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
