Windows "Does Windows Phone need Google and its services to be successful? No. The fate of Windows Phone and its adoption in the marketplace does not rest in the hands of Google. Microsoft itself holds the key to Windows Phone becoming a successful platform, rapid evolution of its cloud services and integration with the rest of the MS eco system." Good editorial on Google killing AES support for consumers and how it affects Windows Phone, by WPCentral's Robert Brand.

To be honest I use the 'back' button 99% of the time.

It would have been a nice feature to use the search button to search within apps instead of just being a shortcut to Bing.

Its a shame they didn't re-add it in WP8 and made it more like the Search Contract. That takes care of both contextual and universal OS searching.

Huge miss IMO.
