Right on the money Nate. In my view, most of criticism regarding the new features of Windows 8 is unwarranted. Yes microsoft could have done things better, but here i would give them benefit of doubt. It depends on how much you want to explore certain things to like them. Windows 8 doesn't have the big of a learning curve as many tech bloggers make it to be, it took me like 10 minutes to come to grips with it. I absolutely love my Windows 8 PC. I now use Windows 7 only at work. To be honest, i don't find that much difference between the two at the core level. Only notable difference is new Windows Store Apps.

 @divad4686  Agreed users dont care about that. But the issue mainly is that tech bloggers should stop putting out wrong information. Take WP8 for example on every blog that i look, this feature doesn't support this blah blah ... Look closely at WP8, most of the changes are hardware related, the software-based changes the users will get in WP 7.8. With regards to the iRival, i would give MS benefit of the doubt regarding the fragmentation issue

First of all Nathaniel why bother writing about news that is nearly 2 months old ... Secondly the notion of nokia being deliberate in the WP fragmentation, then you are seriously out of your mind. The essence of fragmentation is that if a platform is using the same code architecture, doesn't run on a previous iteration. WP8 is based on the Windows 8 kernel that is an entirely different architecture. Most of the wp8 features are hardware related, and all of the software related stuff will be in wp7.8.  I would suggest please take a balanced view of the facts and then write something.

 I guess you are right about being spoiled by iPhone 4S. Obviously iPhone is the mobile device. When I tried a Lumia 800, I did without any prejudice regarding the features etc. I myself used LG P500, and I absolutely love it. But when I used Lumia 800 for like an hour, I just got lost in it. It kind of grew on me and I haven't looked back since then.

I guess what I mean to say is that whatever device you try on, you should do it with an open mind and without any assumptions or prejudice. :)

I am honestly baffled by utter ignorance displayed by writers across most of tech blogs. Obviously the writer has not used a Windows Phone device, otherwise he would not write a post filled with a lot of inaccuracies. "Apple is moving into a secondary phase.....adding Facebook to its mix"  ... Dude Facebook has been integrated by default in Windows Phone 7 first version, further more twitter, linkedin etc were added in the WP 7.5 mango update ... I myself use a Lumia 800 and i simply love it. Most of the people say WP7 has not as much apps as iOS and Android. I feel this is a childish notion. Any sane mobile user will prefer quality over quantity on any apps platform.

I believe Surface tablet is just a ploy to push OEMs to come up with great WIndows 8 tablet designs. I don't think the OEMs should concern themselves too much. They should first put their own house in order first. Motorola Mobility is now a Google subsidiary, and don't you think in the Android ecosystem Google wouldn't be competing against its partners as well. 

Nokia Lumia 900 was one of the top selling phones on Amazon. You saying that they brought this phone before the WP8 official unveiling... The WP8 apollo update won't be available until October if we consider various news reports about it.

If you closely look at the WP8 update, you will see most of it is hardware related. As mentioned by Microsoft, the software related WP8 updates will be available for customers under WP7.8. I agree with the fact that this is not clear what exactly will the WP7.8 update contain. I think its imperative that Microsoft & Nokia should partner to bring up a flagship device incorporating the Pure View technology. That would i think give WP platform some real momentum.

I believe with WP8 & Windows 8, we are gonna have a real feel of how the overall platform unification will work out. Lets wait and see.
