I know it's not the best winphone, but the UI is very fluid and all the apps and games work on it. What would the 8X or the 920 offer that this little guy can't besides a larger screen and slightly faster loading apps?

Don't get me wrong, I'm very impressed by the OS and even by the application catalogue. It's really fast, everything is tastefully animated, it looks briliantly but the core problem is that it's too locked down and every app exists in its little bubble.

My first disapointment: I wanted to take some photos, put them in a zip archive and upload them to FTP. No way to do that. My second: I want to be able to change the default keyboard. And I expect many more ... but it's a nice experiment nonetheless.
