Can't say we didn't see this coming. This is something they need to do though. WinMo has a stigma of slow performance because of the hardware. Look at AT&T Tilt and Tilt 2. Both the worst performing devices I have ever owned. Requiring a higher standard for hardware will give it a quality taste as people use the new devices. If I ended up using Windows Phone 7 and got the same performance at my old winmo devices, I would never think about using it again.
