It is nice feature of Windows Phone to be Xbox Live enabled but its not the reason as to why I wanted it. I use Hotmail as my email central for all my email accounts, I use Windows Live calendar for scheduling, I use Zune for my media, I use SkyDrive as my cloud storage, and having the Office built in has been helpful too. For this reason alone, I wanted Windows Phone 7, it is built around what I use and that is Microsoft products such as Windows, Office, Zune, etc. I do use the Xbox Live app for seeing whos online, once in a while messaging, but thats it. I haven't played games on it. I played some Trials but not bought anything. I have downloaded free Xbox Live games but haven't even played them yet.
