Windows A few days I switched back to Windows Phone 7.5 as my main smartphone operating system. Why? Well, because I can. I like to change things up every now and then, and blessed as I am with an iPhone 3GS (currently pulling duty at my best friend as her portable gaming device), Galaxy SII with CM9, and an HTC HD7, I have the luxury of doing so. Now that I'm back in the neat, tidy, and straight-lined arms of Windows Phone 7 - three long-standing issues really break the illusion, which all come from one source: the networking stack.

You just have to wait for the software to get out of beta first! LOL

Seriously, the good news is that MOST (not all) of the issues with WP7.5 will be addressed with Windows Phone 8. The bad news is you will probably need to buy a new handset!

This platform is DOOMED. I dont care how "intuitive" it is to some people, when BASIC functionality (like updates to the live tiles that are supposed to be so damn nifty!) is so horribly broken, when the specs are so underwhelming compared to the competition...how do they expect to compete? Oh yeah, by selling to the uninformed masses that don't do any research! Good luck with that plan! It may work for a few months, then people will wake up and realize they bought into a crappy OS with buggy software, and you will NEVER see those customers again! Even better (or worse), these same customers will avoid your OTHER products! Have fun with the backlash Microsoft! You are only a few months away from total irrelevancy!
