Transfer My Data app updated by Nokia to include pictures and text messages from your old phone

Switching to a new Windows Phone 8 device? The Transfer My Data app will allow you to move over more than just your contacts; thanks to an update by Nokia, you can also add your pictures and text messages and depending on the number of files being moved over, the result could be hours of waiting as the app does its thing...

Yeah right lol. Why would I want a WP when I have Android? Pretend you are a salesman...and convince me to switch (if you can).

The only thing that transfers directly with the app are the contacts for Android, iOS, and BlackBerry phones. For many people, text messages are as important (more important?) as contacts and photos. I doubt Android, iOS or BB users are going to see any value in the app.

App sounds more like an effort to convert legacy Nokia phone owners to the WP Nokia phones.
