Let's get it started! The Third Annual Smartphone Round Robin officially begins NOW! For the first week we're taking a look at Windows Phone and seeing how it compares to our very own Android. From an Android standpoint, there's definitely a lot to learn from Windows Phone, from having multiple form factors to developing apps for different versions and screen resolutions to HTC and more, there's just so many similarities.

I've started a thread over at the WMExperts Forums to gain a better understanding of Windows Phone and am especially eager to learn more about this powerful smartphone platform. On another note, if you want to lend a helping hand to Crackberry Kevin, he's asking questions about Android in the Android Central Forums as well. Remember, to enter our win a smartphone contest you have to participate in the forum discussion (details here)

After the jump, you'll see my hands-on video with Windows Phone with a whole lot of help from WMExpert's Phil Nickinson. We've also got great comparison pictures that showcase both platforms' flagship devices. The two Windows Phone devices we used, the AT&T Tilt 2 and HTC HD 2, are amazing pieces of hardware, how do you guys think the software will hold up?

Find out in our hands-on video after the jump!
