Gah, I'm honestly thinking of buying a spare USB cover and machining a hole into it. Having to flip it every time is probably my biggest (and almost only) annoyance I've got.
Argh. Black or cyan 900. (Already on eBay)
I love blue but the black looks sleeker. Anyone had hands with both finishes?
I'd say black
the cyan one is cool but you'll get sick of it
and it gets dirty
I've got the Cyan 800, I chose it over black just because I was getting a bit bored of the same old and wanted a change. I love it it matches the blue colour of the tiles perfectly.
If the 900 is like the 800 it will come with a super tight case which incase's all the coloured shell with the same colour. So at any time you can just buy an alternative coloured case and voila, new phone .
I forgot how close it was to the 8th
I'll wait and visit a nokia store close to me and play with one.
So I picked up an HTC Radar at T-Mobile today just to play with Windows Mobile. Damn. That is all I have to say. Windows Mobile does so many things right, I can't wait to get a WP7 phone.
I want to get the Lumia, the only off putting thing to me about the Lumia 900 is the fact that its display isn't 720x1280 like most of the phones coming out shortly after it.
Replying just to say what. Kind of a jerk thing to do.
And if I seemed like a jerk, it was genuine confusion.
So as everybody knows, BBM is a huge part of why teenagers bought Blackberry, and its why Apple came out with iMessage as a competitor.
What do you guys think the chances are of a similar Skype-powered integration for Windows (Phone) 8? It would be a great setup, as it could work across computers, phones, and tablets, much like iMessage, and would work solely through the data plan, much like BBM.
Anybody else think this is a possibility for why Windows bought Skype in the first place? I think if they market it right, they could attract a lot of new customers and especially a lot of teenagers/twentysomethings.
Plus Wp7 already has easy messaging switching - in the messages swapping between facebook and sms is very simple.
All that kinda begs the question - why isn't msn messanger that well and nicely integrated.
Also, could it compete with Skype's already massive database?
I honestly didn't know people still instant message that much on their phones. I use facebook chat once in a blue moon, but I didn't think instant messaging was a big deal anymore. Guess I was wrong. vv
Don't you all have free messaging anyway?
I got my phone today yay
Sucky thing is it won't connect to our wifi
Yay I got in
I think Verizon has their meters wrong because every month they say I send/receive around 5,000 texts, and I send and receive maybe 20 daily, total. Which is maybe ~600 a month.
Apparently the 900 isn't out in the UK untill May. I'm going to check out the 800 as the 900 is getting a few bad points being picked up in reviews about the screen.
I really wanted to like the lumia 800 :-(
Yah the UI uses way too much color to make a pentile panel work. It's not so bad on the original Galaxy S because it's just icons and text, so there's a lot of black and white which the panel has no issue reproducing.
I'm going to check out the HTC Titan on Tuesday, should keep me going until Q4 when Apollo phones come out.
hey guys I'm confused, I'm approaching this time where my old android is dying and I need to find another phone. My mind has been stuck on WP7 for quite sometime but I want an iPhone egh it's so hard to decide.
Can you give me some reasons like why an Android user like me should purchase a WP7 phone?
-less input lag
-higher quality apps
-more stable OS
Now the issue is that all of these things apply to both iOS and WP. If you really care for having lots of apps(particularly games), I would go with iOS. But if you want an easy to use and efficient OS without wanting to play lots of 3D games then WP is a great platform. The devices are also very affordable, certainly more affordable than the iPhone currently is.
I've only downloaded some little 2d games to keep me going but really I don't need it.
Thank you though!
