It's that time again, folks. More discussions pulled from our ever expanding and growing Windows Phone community. If you've not been 100% with it these past handful of days then fear not as we have you covered. The forum is constantly a busy place, which isn't a bad thing, but it can prove difficult to keep up with everything that's currently going on. So what's being discussed?
First up is the inevitable Jessica Alba versus Alicia Keys. The former helping represent mums with Windows Phone, while the latter takes on a role at BlackBerry to help push the brand out and drum up custom through the media. Which is better suited for the job? Well, we'll let the following photo from the BlackBerry 10 launch help you decide:
Awkward, much? We've got to hand it to BlackBerry though, they sure know how to pull in well-known faces, and it doesn't get much better than Alicia Keys. That said, the presentation did seem rather awkward. While Keys went through exactly what her role would be at the company, we couldn't help but view Jessica Alba's position with Microsoft as slightly more effective. But it's early days and we'll have to see how things turn out.
Forum member Saint Michael asked the question: Jessica Alba or Alicia Keys? Which do you prefer so far, and do you believe Alicia really does have the capabilities to help BlackBerry out? Add your thoughts in the "Jessica Alba vs Alicia Keys" thread.
Would anyone go for an actual x86 Windows 8Phone?
Intel is rumoured to be looking into Windows Phone development with an engineer job posting being viewed by many as signs of interest from the company. Unfortunately, we have little to go on and aren't too sure what this all means. Forum user tomatoes11 has an idea:
What are your thoughts on Intel's intentions? Do you believe the company wishes to involve itself in mobile phone developement with Microsoft, or to actually bring Windows 8 to the pocket? Be sure to add your opinions over in the "Would anyone here dump their WP8 device for a true Windows 8 phone?" thread.
