Looks like Nokia and Microsoft are going all-in with this one to try and make a dent in the US market.

So for people that have tried WP7, how does it compare to iOS? Are the live tiles really that helpful and as big a deal as people make it out to be? Is it as user friendly and intuitive as iOS? Will the learning curve be steep if somebody wants to switch over from an iPhone?
Frankly I am tired of the stale iOS operating system and want to try something new. AT&T gives me upgrades every 18 months on average. So I guess I really could switch to the Nokia Lumia when it comes out (I am upgrade eligible now) and use it for the next year and a half. If I don't like it, I could always switch back to the iPhone and my next upgrade will coincide with the 7th gen iPhone.
Thoughts? I'd like to especially hear from folks who have switched to Windows Phone from iOS or Android.
