PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Once you've got used to it, and that the Hub is the home screen, BB10 is by some distance the most brutally efficient multitouch interface I have used so far. It makes the others look like hard work. Yes, the odds are stacked against RIM - and when it comes to the as-yet unseen hardware, it needs to pull some crackers out of the barrel. But phones sell on the user interface, and this is very good indeed." Basically how I feel about Windows Phone. Much more pleasurable and fun to use than the childish and condescending iOS, and the at times confusing and messy Android (more Holo please, developers!), but sadly, the rest of the world doesn't really care.

I think it's just a preference thing. It's not that either of us is wrong - just that we both have different preferences. Metro on WP is quite jarring to new users - it was to me as well - but once I got into it and over the initial weirdness, it all just... Fell into place.

With iOS and Android, I have to work to get what I want. In WP things just... Work. They are where I expect them to be. It's really hard to put into words.

I'm with thom here. Not everyone *needs* a lot of customization options. I absolutely adore the simple UI in WP. It gives me what I need at a glance and that's that. I generally dislike UI transition animations, but the ones in WP generally do not annoy me, oddly enough.
