Honestly, his nitpicking is at an extreme level. There isn't a piece of software that doesn't have some type of bug once in a while. I've never thought, 'OMG, the Windows Phones is so buggy'. It's actually amazingly less buggy than my Android HTC EVO 4.
I wish that were true.
While I agree that the article is rubbish (I started reading it a few hours ago and gave up after the first few paragraphs), the keyboard issue is really frustrating. The update is available to me, but last time I tried it I ended up getting more severe bugs like not being able to end a call and occasional crashes. I decided to roll back and bear the collapsing keyboard for the sake of not being reminded of my old Android phone which had those severe issues.
Are you guys talking about disappearing keyboard bug?
Lumia is running the latest WP build and does not have that issue, also, AT&T will push Tango to other devices in coming 3-4 weeks, which will address this bug for older phones as well.

At least with windows phone you can go to the market place and straight up install the vanilla version of Mango/Tango, whatever it is, and have a straight from the factory, no ATT bloatware, Windows phone.
I went and tried one hands on today and I was impressed, don't let fear mongering sway your purchasing decisions.
It's sort of different, you don't have to install any vanilla versions, you can just remove all ATT stuff via the phone itself.Edited by Kauke - 4/9/12 at 10:34pm
