    Windows Phone still has problems that are yet to be ironed out.

    For example, multitasking (when you run a few apps at the same time). When you’re in App A, and then switch to App B, and then back to App A, App A has forgotten where it was and gets reset.

    It was also a bit of a shock to get locked into Bing for everything, instead of Google. I’d prefer to use Google services, but it is poorly supported on Windows Phone.

    Microsoft realizes they are behind I am surprised they didnt wait for windows 8 to implement this but it makes sense, they covet the market share blackberry is bleeding and since the microsoft phone will presumably work well with windows 8 and the business suite from msft they need to gain some traction now and really dig in for the windows 8 launch. This is a company that increased revenue by 10% in an off year you dont get huge being stupid.

    I like your thoughts on MSFT. and NOK.
    However, the WP. is a great device, far better for work and play.

    Keep up the good work.

    You like other Microsoft haters don’t have a clue. You only need a few solid apps in your daily life. Typical American, wants to over eat. Love the new Nokia Lumia 900.

    Actually, I’m not sure you “need” any apps in your daily life. But that doesn’t mean people won’t consider that as a factor in a new phone purchase. Glad you love it.

    Running WP 7.5 and I have to say that the software runs amazingly. Simple programs Simple and easy to use interface, tiles are a great function to keep the home screen less cluttered like that of a Android or iPhone, and over all pleased with the phone, but the marketplace is a let down, granted many apps are not needed or serve little purpose, simply having the apps such as draw something and words with friends available would help extending client base. Having a phone that leaves you out of reach with friends doesn’t sound so pleasing to a buyer. Having options available for people is better than not having them at all. <– (as already stated by Justin Fritz)

    I bought a Samsung Omnia W and the phone is just amazing. The interface is cool and very fluid. The best thing about Window phone interface is you never get lost, just a dedicated back button and you are back to home screen. Microsoft has keep everything
    simple and easy, connected.

    Just keep wondering whether Apollo update will be provided to earlier phone (though mine is just a month old 🙂

    I have been a reading a lot about windows phone review and feel are this reviewers paid to bad mouth such a great OS
