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.

windows phone is "acquired taste", you need to use it for more than a weekend to learn to appreciate it. Have it with you next time you are on vacation


and for gods sake, if you are going to use wp8, get a Nokia. Nokia Maps alone will make your smartphone experience (and your vacation) far far more pleasant.

Nokia Maps ( = Navteq maps) is a disaster in Europe.

Hm, perhaps that depends on which part of Europe... for me they are quite nice and detailed.

And it's not so simple as "= Navteq", a lot of Nokia mapping efforts is done in Berlin for example, IIRC.
