This is a move in the right direction. WP's biggest problem is they've been emulating all of the bad aspects of iOS.

That's what makes a phone secure and reliable. quality control. I can't agree with bad aspect because Apple makes more money than google will ever on the "1" iPhone. Frankly the mass consumers don't give a shit about IOS aspects. They just hunger for the iphobe.

Apple has much higher margins. Android sells a ton more phones. And, Android haspects been okayed for military and government use based onday stability and security. IOS has not.

Apple making more money with that 1 phone doesnt mean the iPhone doesn't have what some consider cons.
Non removable storage is considered a con by some ppl. Even in Android land....you will see posts about ppl not liking X or Y Android phone because of non removable storage.
Because we all have preferences....everything will have a pro n con. Yes, even the iPhone has cons.

My problem with the storage setup the way it is now on WP...its like a hybrid of iOS, the old Win Mo/Android.
I feel MS shoulda just chose one firm direction they wanted to go in from the beginning. Now it seems like they are.

wp8 is going to be an experience i suppose...lots of eye candy plus some seriously handy features...people might actually want to switch over to wp8 coz they'd get all the features they've been used to(plus some new ones) along with a beautiful UI.

Metro? Beautiful? To me, its the ugliest UI in the market.

lol. ugliest? it's one of the best. Why? It doesn't follow the usual UI of the smartphones.
Some people really need to know that if something doesn't follow a conventional look, doesn't really mean it's ugly.

I didn't say it was ugly because its was different. I said its was ugly because its ugly.

THINGS THAT'LL MAKE ME CONSIDER TO BUY A WINDOWS PHONE 8:
- Support for MicroSD card---> mass storage mode; non-reliance to Zune
- Bluetooth File Transfer
- Further improvement of the Marketplace (like what most wise people said,"QUALITY is ALWAYS BETTER than QUANTITY."
that's all folks! :)

Unbanned just in time.
YES, I'd love to see this on a WP8 device. The one thing WP8 lacked in my mind (other than being open source) is here!
Wow, Microsoft is doing a good job.

for me, it's all about the drag and drop aspect... so if it's true, they're one step closer to another customer... ;)
but more importantly for me...
basic customisation - i.e. using own mp3s as ringtones, separate volumes for media / alarm, etc.
one notification centre - like android's dropdown feature
until they address these (very) basic standards - I'm out...

That would be good. It's the reason why I like Android a lot. If WP8 gets it, WP8 might become a favourable platform for me.

As long as we will still have the ability to seamlessly sync music, photos, and videos through a Zune type software that's just as fast and also allows for automatic syncs like Zune, this is a great move. That's one thing that Nokia couldn't get right with Nokia Suite. It's just too slow.

If it'll make consumers more interested in the platform, then Microsoft should include this feature. I want Windows Phone to be a 3rd major player in the mobile phone OS game.

finally MS makes sense on WP8, expandable memory means its not a closed ecosystem anymore. Users can easily modify their media files to their heart's content without relying on Zune software. A welcome change indeed!
