I needed to get a quick cheap smart phone in a hurry a few weeks ago so I got a Lumia 710. I wasn't expecting much but I really have grown to love WP7. It's more intuitive than Android and I have yet to run into a glitch.

Actually Droidrage_Doug im a wp7 owner so I have interest in wp7+ threads you on the other hand are by title a droidfan so you constantly popping off with negative BS about WP is the real issue. Cool you don't like the OS,that's obvious,stick with android threads. My other post on that thread nailed your M.O. to a T.,you kid, are a coward that pops off out of yourass and can't back your BS. I'm sure it's obvious to those that read that thread you are ducking the truth

No android ?? okayy Then bring back Meego!!!!!!! Not being a WP hater. I love WP. but it is too late. nokia is not going to see big improvements in their market share until WP apollo gets released. 1 core is enough for basic functions. but graphic intensive tasks like 3d gaming cannot be done on 1 core.

I wonder if there's gonna be a tech bubble at some point and MS and Nokia slow movement will prevent them from this future disaster. Anyway, got to be optimistic somehow. I sight xbox360 a reason. Anylist wrote Xbox off but look where it is now. More than 15 months highest selling console!

graphic intensive gaming depends more on the GPU than the CPU. 1 core with a massive GPU will run most games pretty darn well on WP7
