AT&T was my only choice when my Verizon contract ran out.
I had our Verizon rep come in a couple times to discuss our corporate account. The first time he had his iPad and his Zoom to access his corporate network.
I asked him about Verizon's plans regarding Windows Phone. He said there were lots of problems with Windows but wouldn't elaborate.
I got my first smartphone last April. Within the last month or so I've taken on corporate mobile phone responsibilities so past problems between Verizon and Microsoft were never on my radar. I really had no pre-conceived notions with phones.
I really had the hots for the Samsung Galaxy Tab when they first came out but could never justify the purchase. Just too incompatible with my work environment. When we needed a tablet for in-house Windows software development I settled on the Acer Iconia Tab W500. About 3 months later W8DP was released. It installed flawlessly on the W500. I maintained full corporate compatibility (at 2 different clients). Microsoft has some tough times ahead but I believe they will end up with a pretty large share of the phone and tablet market.
My first corporate WP7, an HTC Trophy, is due to arrive this Wednesday. It will be interesting to see what the BlackBerry guys think of it. The 2 current Android owners were new hires and already had personal Androids so that's what we got them for work. They did NOT want a BlackBerry like the rest of the crew has.
