Why? Every single app I've downloaded for my phone with the exception of mobile shell is free. Even turn by turn GPS navigation is free.

Glad to see them do it actually. WinMo has been around long before touch screens, better to rewrite completely than just try and keep tacking stuff on.

By the time my phone is due for replacement next year, I'll have a choice between iPhone (if it hits verizon), Android or WinMo7 depending on the reviews it gets in that time. If they'd have just tacked some crap onto the existing OS I'd not consider it.
