I have a Lumia 920. I like it very much. It works great as a phone, has nice features and has most of the apps I used on my old iPhone (words with friends, etc). More apps are being added all the time.
Speak for yourself.

I agree with 'Cosmo Joe' that as more apps are developed for Windows Phone 8 users, the WP8 will likely become a strong contender against its competitors.

Beta-testing on newly developed and/or current applications and especially those soliciting consumer feedback and offering some sort of future incentive will most likely take the WP8 to the next level.

In addition, beta-testing offers are a great way to build your app's inventory. I just saw today an offer for Windows Phone 8 users to test and recommend improvements to a FREE Flashlight app for their Windows Phone 8. One incentive is that testers with constructive comments will have the opportunity to acquire additional free and useful applications as they are developed. Individuals interested can send an email to

For now, I think the Windows Phone 8 shows a lot of promise.

Microsoft won't make it open source either. Fail. The world has changed but Microsoft won't change with it. This is a sign of a company in long term demise.

The same was said about Apple in the late 90's, right before Microsoft bailed them out with a $150 million investment.
In the tech world, fortunes change quickly.

MS just needs to get technical people on the OS to fill in the missing holes.

Android is dominant and currently the best OS, but it's not perfect and can be beaten. The play store is full of junk, ratings are misleading, no support for trials so you often need to install an app plus a separate unlocker, apps leave all their files completely out in the open.

If MS filled the holes it could beat Android. They are big holes but easy to fill. Just having a user file system would fix most of the problems.
