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.

And, that keyboard. Ah, the Windows Phone 7 keyboard. It's so much better than the competition I can hardly believe I managed to do without since November 2011.


I can't live without Swype for Android, have you tried it?

I hate swype as well... I use on screen keyboard from terminal IDE, but the buttons are too small unless in landscape, at least it is a full keyboard..

Swype is very nice once you get used to it, but there seems to be a wicked learning curve (at least for idiots like me.) I've started trying to use the version in MeeGo more and more though.
