Windows Phone 8 Preview’s are out, and they are tempting! Tempting to what you may ask? The temptation is to wait. Nokia is expected to release the Lumia 900 as the crown jewel of the Lumia range (possibly sooner than expected) running Windows Phone 7.5.
Windows Phone 8, however, sharing a platform with Windows 8 tablets and Windows 8 PC’s, well, that’s a really big deal if you’re into Windows phones.
Windows phone is playing catch-up to Apple and Android, with Android at minimum leading the hardware specification race, with quad processors and over 1 GB or RAM expected in handsets and tablets later this year.
Specifications and horsepower though, don’t automatically equate to a great user experience.
The answer it quite simple – what do you need or want in a phone? User experience, integration – and integration to what, apps, etc, etc. The lack of one or the presence of the other makes the great phone debate much simpler, as BlackBerry have found out over the last little while (what appstore ?)
I’d love to know, how do YOU chose a phone – is it form over function, a must have brand, or is there more?
