windows phone 7 series comes out holiday this year. Not to mention a bunch of other models and carriers for that fact. if you can wait, you probably wont regret it
Just to mention about emulator, it is there so you can develop for the win7 phone without ever purchasing the phone, as well as it will simulate what the screen will look like. Its a good tool if you plan on making Silverlight/XNA applications
