Best Phone I've had
but my point may be..
I was seriously considering going to MS Phone so I could quit keeping 3 calendars. I have one on my Symbian based Nokia, my main personal one on Yahoo (which I could never sync with my phone) and of course the Outlook based work calendar. Phone 7.5 just didn't offer enough real business capability. Nice and fluffy, but not for me. Android and IPhone aren't much different. If MS Phone 8 (with business capabilities) plus a decent device don't match up soon, I may go back to one paper calendar and a dumb phone on an inexpensive carrier.
I've read Toni's opinion pieces at other sites,
that's bad, but that may not be good either. I purchased a couple of Windows
Phones for my wife and stepdaughter last Christmas. I wasn't worried about
my stepdaughter, she is accustomed to computers, phones, etc. However,
my wife has developed a near phobia of anything technologically related.
To my surprise, it took very little on my part to teach her how to use her
Windows Phone (the model I chose were the Samsung Focus Flash).
She has learned to do things with that little phone that she would never
even attempted on my desktop or laptop PCs.
I think that a good number of "technical writers" are too quick to write off
Windows Phone models just because they don't have the same specs
that many Android phones have, such as dual core processors, 32 gigs
RAM, etc. The thing I've noticed about these Samsung Focus phones is
they run VERY reliably, they don't have to be restarted all the time due to
some glitch, no dropped phone calls, easy notifications of activities that
those two gals are interested in and I don't have to spend all my spare time
explaining what this or that does! These phones perform the tasks that
they want to do quickly, even without dual core processors, and the battery
life is pretty good as well, usually a couple of days. Now, that battery life
may not match my old phone, which generally lasts 5 days or more, but
for what they (my gals) are using them for, a couple of days is great!
Also, Toni is still VERY bitter about Nokia dropping Symbian, and that
seems to cloud his viewpoint of anything Nokia might do now or in the
It gave me enough food for thought that my next purchase may not be Windows based (which I had almost decided on).
