Qualcomm should support windows phones. The more windows phones, the more Qualcomm chips that will be bought.

im really not noticing much difference. it kept turning on my wifi, which would tell me that networks were available. i really only use wifi at home, which im happy to turn on myself. i also turned off control over gmail. so, im not real sure its even doing that much. i'll keep it for a while and see what happens.

I've had it for a few days and normally by 1 pm (from 6:30 am) my battery is down to about 45%. This morning when I woke BatteryGuru told me that it had learned enough to start saving battery. It is now 2pm and I've got down to 54% - and I've had a pretty heavy morning with phone calls, emails etc. So it seems to be working. I havent adjusted any of its settings at this stage - all emails and other messages seem to be coming through normally. I'll see how it goes over the next week or two.
