One more thing about that. I don't like Apple or iOS for many reasons, but iOS is simple looking and beautiful. WP7/8 is simple looking and ugly. Sorry man. Simple looking and beautiful (iOS) > Simple looking and ugly (WP7/8).

You're right. If WP7/8 was a chick she would rate around a 4 around other uglier chicks. Next to the 9's or 10's that is iOS and Android. WP looks like a 2 or 3.

Most of my android using friends have launcher 7 installed on their smartphones. And they are showing it off . What an irony...

i agree.. but its nowhere close to the wp experience... those fake live tiles just give it a half baked look...

forget about coolness tell me about android productivity compared to full windows 6,7,8 or any thats will work on tablet. i bet u will start thinking what else is their even before counting the features that windows desktop OS gives even on a tablet and to the articles yes wp8 will have many cross features which is more then good for apps to grow rapidly... u hate UI well thats your problem if u dont like i can do nothing to make u like it

well ios is simple. i agree with that. and it is somewhat good looking. but i prefer something even better looking(stock or sense) and ios is too simple for me. if apple makes it a little more complex(widgets multiple homescreen file transfer w/usb flash, themes) etc then it would fill my needs

Why does it say in the specifications that the phone has an '8.0' megapixel count?? ITS '8.7' for crying out loud! So many websites get this dam part Wrong...
