Windows There's a lot of news coming out of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona today, but since we can't compete with the well-funded gadget blogs, I suggest you read up on the details at The Verge (or Engadget). One thing stood out to me, though. While the entire industry is moving towards more cores, more megapixels, more gigahertz, more display inches - Microsoft is doing the exact opposite. Windows Phone has been updated and optimised to run on slower hardware.

If your buying a smart phone, just for phone calls there is no point. Browsing the web on a near 720p display using your phone is something you will never return from, its absolutely awesome. Your phone doesn't support it therefore it must be a useless feature right ?

Where does it support nfc ? proof please.

WP does support multitasking, just not for 3rd party applications


So therefore it does not support proper multitasking, extending battery life ? Thats just such a lame excuse, my nexus runs 2 days without a charge using it moderately, 1 day with heavy activity (i mean watching films etc) and thats with proper multitasking and a 720p display, its battery life is better than my nokia n95.
