This all seems a bit pointless. Why have it dual boot symbian and windows 7? Even if it dual booted wp7 and Win7 I still call shananagins on all fronts. That is alot for a phone then again this is the same people that feel the need to saddle a 13.2 (?) mp cam On a wp7 phone. But man its good to see somebody breaking the bland wp7 handset mold.

Yeah, I guess that's cool... but it sounds like it'll be more like a novelty sort of thing.
