  • Its good to see Microsoft put the tools prior to release for people when buying an app store ready to go and I hope that grows massively from there. But what I see is a brick of applications like the iPhone, I also want to see as an integrated whole quilt or blanket as WP7 said when they released the phone. Everything works together and I hope to do with the phone. read very well.
  • Still not supported on XP. wtf
