    I have a Lumia 710. Great phone, great OS, but the lack of mainstream apps is very depressing. I'm about ready to jump ship and get a Galaxy Nexus.

    @Crisis: What major apps are you missing? I think at this point there are very few that I'm still missing on WP.

    No Barnes & Noble Nook, no DI.FM client that allows login to a premium account, no real YouTube client, no Amazon MP3 cloud player. On top of that, my daughter asks where Sega's Chu Chu Rocket and her Dr. Seuss books are, as she uses both on our tablet at home.

    Wow, seriously, they got WP7.5 to run smoothly on phones with hardware specs lower than my 1st gen Samsung Galaxy S (snapdragon 1Ghz with 326 RAM)? That is a truly impressive work of software engineering!! On the other hard, Android just seems to require faster HW every few months.

    My phone by the way, is choking and becoming less responsive by the day. I wish there is a way to reset it to factory default - a feature that comes with W8.
