"Microsoft has gone out of its way to build an awesome experience for the phone with Windows Phone 7. But the one experience they can't control is what happens when you walk into a retail store to buy one. And it's too bad, because the retail experience, as handle by carriers and their affiliates, is an abomination. It's pretty hard to try out a new device experience when the device is either broken, dead, or a plastic shell with a sticker for a home screen. Or when the response to 'Can I see a Windows Phone?' is met with 'Have you seen the AMOLED screen on the Samsung Charge?'"
WPTattletale.com is a site where you could post your experiences when trying to purchase, or learn more about, Windows Phone 7. Many of use have heard stories, or have had personal experiences where you feel that retailers are not treating Windows Phone fairly. Perhaps they push a different product when you specifically ask about Windows Phone. Perhaps they just make the experience of trying to learn more about it tedious with non-working display models or some other inconvenience. Feel free to share your experiences and name the stores and salespeople that are the offenders.
Be a tattle tale!
