Netflix streaming app headed to Windows Phone 7 devices Showing off the app at the MIX event, Microsoft Windows Phone 7 devices will have a Netflix streaming app (currently in prototype stage) that will allow for movie playback over 3G or Wi-Fi.
The popular Netflix "Watch Instantly" streaming service has over 12,000 movies, TV episodes and documentaries.

There is not much other info on it, but Engadget has a shaky video of the app in action, and it looks pretty good so far:

I want to upgrade my phone soon, but now I'm starting to wonder if I should skip some of the android phones (HTC Desire, Nexus One) and wait for this.

"Ugh, how long before iPhone support.."

Considering that the iPhone still does not have flash support (and even Snow Leopard is having trouble with it), I think it will be a while before we see support for Microsoft Silverlight on the iPhone.

This device does create a difficult decision...do I go with the PSPhone for mobile gaming, or do I go with the Win7 phone for the mobile movies?
