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 Mac sync application is very basic, but I like it. It syncs shit. The end. Perfect.


Beautiful. I wish the Zune app for Windows was simple like that, but it isn't too bad.

The Windows Phone 8 application for Windows 7/8 (the non-Metro) is pretty much like that as well. I only hope that we don't see Microsoft tempted to pollute an otherwise straight forward application into a bloatmoster like iTunes has become.
