    Smile Windows Phone 8 in hand

    I am now a proud & happy owner of a Nokia Lumia 920 Windows Phone 8. Darn nice unit & what it can do. Wanted one & glad to have one.

    Cheers,
    Drew

    Thanks, John, so do I. I was intrigued by the HTC, as well but, the Hardware Upgrade, for which I was eligible from my wireless provider, happened to be for the 920 so...

    Certainly the HTC is a bit smaller & lighter than the 920.

    Cheers,
    Drew

    Well, after having the phone for a while I can only say, it's a darn nice! Great camera, overall functionality is easy & intuitive to use (read, things are overt when it comes to figuring out what there is & how it's done). Seeing it in various lighting, even bright sun is fine, as for the features... too many to list or address but, I'm very impressed w/ them.

    I'd recommend this phone to anyone w/out hesitation.

    And that's my little 'Product Review'

    Cheers,

    With WP8 also comes some apps that have been redone, and some really neat ones too. Two of my favorites are the updated Photosynth app, and then Blink app from MSFT Research.
    Thanks John

    I agree, John. I have found a few that are useful /cool and lots that are free, too. Weather, a flashlight, Skype and many more. Having both my personal & business E-mail in my phone, Skydrive and a terrific GPS are just a few 'happy to have' things out of a long list.

    Cheers,
    Drew

    Another thing I really appreciate w/ my phone is being able to add to the Calendar in (my) Windows 8 or to Calendar in Outlook and have To Do list and Reminders in my Windows Phone 8, AS WELL, w/out having to lift a finger. Or input to the phone 1st... it's just so handy, running about w/ busy lives & having everything so easily across multiple locations.

    Cheers,
    Drew

    I agree, and even though I rarely use the To-Do list, it is handy to have it. Yup, enter it once and its everywhere.
    Thanks John
