Pentile(Note, Nexus, Lumia 800/900) vs Real Stripe(S2). The Lumia 900's on Pentile. Same technology.

This is because Apple, after hearing word of this, reprogrammed Siri to not say the Nokia Lumia. There's a follow up story to this: Here

Was going to jump in last night and point out the certainty that Apple would do this, but figured they already have! Pathetic... rolleyes.gif

I believe that using SkyDrive over 3/4G counts against ur data plan. Also you cannot upload files larger than 100GB and I believe you cannot upload mp3s. To me that makes it basically useless. If only more windows phones had microSD support.
If games are a priority for you, a windows phone is probably not what you want, although I have some decent games on mine. I have a full version of Minecraft called SurvivalCraft on mine. Seeing as MS put the Xbox Live thing on the OS I'm sure there will be more games for it in the near future.

Funny story! All Windows Phones have microSD cards right now. Literally all of them. The catch is, you're not allowed to see/touch them without voiding warranty (except on the Samsung Focus)

EDIT: And due to compatibility issues, very few microSD cards will actually work if you DO swap them.

I just read that story too, that just means that you can't trust the service. If you then ask what is the best personal computer, and it returns an answer Apple doesn't like, then you'll get a similar answer in the future. Apparently Apple is working on a TV, so when you ask for the best TV, you'll probably get a similar answer. Best music player, same thing, best laptop, same thing, best keyboard, best mouse, best operating system, etc.

If Apple is on the market with a particular product then they will feel tempted to act just like they did. So, what is the usefulness of this software if a google search will get you actual results instead of a pre-defined answer ?

It puts a sense of self-confidence and reduces buyer's remorse in the iDiots that spend over $1,000 on a laptop to do basic, casual, online surfing, by making them honestly believe that they have the best computer in the world. lachen.gif

I love how ironic the "think different" slogan has become, where everyone and their grandmothers have phones and laptops that look identical even across different models and generations.

So it's real stripe. S2 vs Lumia 900.
post #29 of 32
Same. I love my Lumia 900.

Sure, it has some missing features that the Androids can do but for me, it does nearly everything I want it to do and it's so much better and more fun to use than my previous Blackberry.

Sure you can stream mp3s from SkyDrive through a W7 phone. SkyDrive Streaming. I still have Verizon unlimited data plan so I don't have to worry about data usage. I've never needed to use my phone to move or carry 100GB worth of files but guess there are some poeple who do. smile.gif
