Default Blasphemy .. I know but.. (W7P on Android)

I really wanted to get a W7P but the only ones Sprint have are sliders and the one I really liked was on AT&T but to buy outright is $699+Tx, ending up getting the HTC Evo 3D. I really REALLY like the W7P UI, its impo the best and most natural interface for my needs and was wondering if there is an Android "skin/theme" that one would recommend. Something where the home screen has big tiles that I can use to launch apps with/from and with Clock/Calender tiles. (And damn screen is super freaking sensitive)

Launcher 7 is a good start. There's a few apps skinned to be WP7 like as well (a whole Zune music interface one is floating around XDA).

This is a little more work, but can be paired with launcher pro and the right images to create a similar feel.

Oh I like this.. combined with Fede Music player is a nice home screen. Now only have to figure a way to add a HTC style clock and realtime weather/map and I should be good for now.

Just saw on one of the mobile sights that someone OC'd the EVO 3d's dual core to 1.8Ghz.. and here I am still trying to figure out how to toggle between Launcher 7 and HTC's Sense UI.

Still miss a few small things from iOS, like being able to control any media player while the screen is locked, most notably Pandora and Stitcher and MediaFly, I like being able to have quick, almost instant access to volume, skip, pause etc controls. Also when getting a text being able to click on the notification and it taking me immediately to that text.. but man on man do I love the customization and the voice commands and the dedicated photo button ;-).
Edit: was just at the Sprint store they had the mini-usb/hdmi to HDMI cable as well as the case for the EVO 3D.. but DAMN $50 for a case. No idea of the cameras are covered with Gorilla Glass like the front is.

BTW is there a screenshot key combo like iOS has ?

you can install other media players that will let you control from the lock screen (winamp is one of them)
and you will need to root your phone for screenshots, its not supported by default, something im not very fond of

One modder got Debian running natively on the Xoom, he's got a primitive dual boot setup using Clockwork mod, it's pretty nuts.

This will get you started, but lots of Windows 7 related themes/apps in the market place.

You don't need to root the phone for screenshots you can use a PC and the sdk or you can try using shootme without root... it works on some unrooted phones

Thanks guys, Launcher 7 looks pretty slick. Is it really resemble W7P theme? I never seen or experience W7P before. But the theme is real nice
