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.

Sad state of hardware design in both the Android and iOS world? What planet are you on?

You have to see what other designs Thom also likes to understand where he is coming from. He is a big fan of ultra minimalist designs and is kind of bored with the basic iPhone design too.

For example his post on the Sony Monolith TV.

That is fine. Though many of the WP8 phones just look like a squared off Android phone with lurid colours, to me. Nothing interesting either. I am played out with the whole functional minimalist school now.

But I agree with the general thrust of dull design, I just include Nokia in that group as well.
