Two Weeks In With WP7 & Zune

Well, I’ve had my WP7 for over two weeks now, and it’s still rockin’ my world.  I’ve been showing it to friends and family, and I’ve worked out a bit of an informal presentation:  I start with the Netflix tile, move on to the People tile, and then wow them with the Zune tile.  I show off how easy it is to get to my music, and then I’ll ask them to name a song and BOOM- it starts playing off my phone in no time.  Showing off with a quick demo is one thing, though- how has the phone been on a daily basis?

Overall, I’m really happy with the phone.  But I write about Zune, so I’ll focus on that.  I’ve been using Shazam to identify songs I hear while out and about and then finding them on the Marketplace.  It’s also been useful when I’m hanging out with friends- someone will be talking about a song, and I can bring it up on the phone pretty quickly.  The speakers on the phone make it really easy to share music with a group, opposed to passing a pair of headphones around with an MP3 player.  I still use my Zune HD every day, though.  I listen to it at my desk at work, and I plug it into the Zune Dock at home.  To use some outdated technology in a metaphor: WP7 is my boom box, but Zune HD is my record collection.

I’d like to hear from you guys about your own experiences with WP7 and Zune: Is it everything you thought it would be?
