Microsoft Provides Windows Phone 8 Details
Does it have a motor?
I'm pretty sure this is still a phone, isn't it? It says so in the nomenclature; Windows PHONE 8. So why does Microsoft do their damnedest to put as many layers of unnecessary interaction as possible between you and any essential phone-related information?
The fact that the indicators are hidden on the current batch of Windows Phone devices is one of the biggest reasons why I gave up on my HD7, and rarely use my 710. Combine this with a startling dearth of software, an absolutely horrible on-screen keyboard, and the lack of function-based widgets (such as wi-fi or Bluetooth toggle), and you have a perennial third-string placekicker for an operating system.
If it weren't for RIM's complete ineptitude, Windows Phone would stay in fourth place, where it belongs.
