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.

Not quite. Windows Phone 8 runs applications written for WinPRT, which is similar to, but still not quite the same as, WinRT.

Thank you for the correction - do you have a link handy with some sort of matrix outlining the differences?
