Used to have an EtenX500 running Win6.5 - one of my worst phones ever. An incoming call would make the GPS navigation reengage for 2 minutes...

Can anyone tell me if Nokia Asha 303 is included on this? I am not sure if Asha 303 is a Windows Mobile also. And what would happen if it's included? Does my Cell will shut down? how can I avoid it? and what should I do?
Please help.

I don't care about discontinuing the Marketplace at all..It is useless and full of outdated, useless and dull apps. However, i felt so sad when they stopped the Myphone backup service. Actually, it was such a useful service.

Kill it. It is useless. I have not found any update to my mobile windows 6.1 since I bought it. The windows smartphone is like a disposable items. It worth buying any Android smartphones, they care. Microsoft is digging their grave.

Oh no! I'm using HTC HD2 :| Atleast they should give us a Windows 7 upgrade since HD2 can handle it, easily!
