Windows My new phone arrived today: a blue HTC 8X, running Windows Phone 8. As a huge Windows Phone fan put off by several persistent issues in Windows Phone 7.x, I'm basically giving this platform another shot, and in this day and age such a second chance doesn't come cheap: the 8X is 539 EUR, after all. Here's a few quick first impressions after less than a day of use.

The power, volume, and camera buttons also feel a bit flimsy, like they're about to fall off. This is kind of strange for an otherwise solid piece of hardware, and on top of that, you'd think HTC had figured out by now how to make a decent button.

Hm, since HTC was always about ~touchscreens - figuring out how to do proper buttons might be not their first priority ;p
