Google So yeah, Google totally just won the conference showdown by easily beating both Apple and Microsoft. Not only did Google announce Android 4.1 with some really cool new features, a cheap but non-crippled tablet, and a new Android device called the Nexus Q, but they also opened up pre-orders for Google Glass. So yeah.

RE[6]: Seriously?

Member since:

I've compiled some quotes from the article you posted criticizing Windows Phone 7's networking stack.

It should prove insightful:

My Lumia 710 connects via WiFi in less than 4 seconds.
- Drumhellar

My girlfriend has a Lumia 800 and has never encountered problems like these.
- WilliamM

I have an HTC Trophy (Verizon's only WP phone), and there's no WiFi problem whatsoever, so I don't think Thom's problem is necessarily an "HTC" problem. I don't know what the cause of his problem is. I've never heard of a general WiFi problem wrt WP (sites like The Verge certainly would've ripped WP to shreds over it, were that the case.)
- MollyC

I agree. This might be a hardware issue. I have a Titan II, and Wifi reconnect (or 3G reconnect after Wifi dropoff) is usually a few seconds, and web browsing is real fast (compared to my old HTC G2 Android phone).
- sukru

yup - my lumia 800 also re-connects to wifi very fast. fast enough i've never bothered timing it (seems nearly instant)
- bitflung

I don't have the HD7, but I do own the LG e900 and I'm not having the same problems you've having with that phone.
- sagum

Like other WP 7.5 commenters, I also don't experience any WiFi issues. I have a Dell Venue Pro, and it connects in about 4 seconds.
- n4cer

Yeah, I've had absolutely no issues with WiFi on my HTC Arrive. It actually connects quicker than my FC16 laptop and iPad.

- helf

Samsung Focus - no connectivity issues here either. Yours does sound like it could be a hardware issue.
- Machester

My email, calendar and message tiles update before my PC apps do... I have my phone next to me... it chimes, I do an update on my PC to get the latest and read them. So I don't know what's up with your phone/network.
- Tuishimi

Under 2 secs on Lumia 900. I think Thom is possessed.
- frostbyte

I have an LG C900 and I have not seen any slow network stuff or broken tiles.
- DDevine

Do you see the trend? Everything points to this being an isolated Thom problem. Yet you penned an entire hit piece article trashing Windows Phone, never issued a retraction or any sort of correction, and continue to pedal the same inaccuracies as if they were some widespread issue.

You're being disingenuous Thom.
